OK, I repent of all the harsh criticism levied at my employers in previous posts. What I took to be incompetence was actually a case of not enough people hobbled further by constant training of temps who didn't stick with the job. Besides, they hired me for $19/hour (more like salary equivalent, ~$39,500) plus benefits and were making noises about future expansion leading to more money and possible promotion. We'll see how that works out, and in the meantime I await the offer letter from their HR office in Beltsville with great interest. I can do a lot with $19/hour. ^____^
Damned tired after the last couple of days' Poison emulation (see opening lyrics of "Look What The Cat Dragged In") so I'm going to forgo the Internet spaceships and call it a night.
