Not sure if I'd mentioned it but I landed a new position at a different department (State of TN). Today is my last day at Safety and I couldn't be more thrilled. This has been, hands down, the WORST position I've ever held and I was glad to take a 1-step demotion to get the h$ll out of here. The new slot is downtown and hopefully much more relaxed than this one. I'll actually get to create software instead of dinking with a stupid vendor system. The new slot is located across the street from the main bus depot and bus passes are free for State employees and the pickup point is 1-mile from my front door. Oh yea, the new slot is also work from home, 3 days per week. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be making a change.

Thanks fer listenin...................

When I was "let go" after 30+ years....everyone kept saying,
"Things happen for a reason."
I didn't believe it until I started MY new job in 2016.
It's less work, better co-workers, encouraging management, and NOT a huge corporate monster.
Of course, I am making 15k less a year, and spending almost $100 a week on gas...
but I haven't been this content with my job in a LOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Sounds like you have already discovered your "reason" this thing happened!

Thanks for sharing that, Mike. I appreciate everyone's encouragement and am looking forward to my first day, tomorrow. Now I just gotta get myself to the bus pickup point by 6:30a.
