I just got home from work. Yes, I’m on vacation this week. Remember this? Well, last week I got a call from the manager that I mentioned in the linked post. I missed the call, and he only said that he had a question for me. He was gone for the day by the time I got the message, and did not work the next three days.
This morning, he was back at work. I called him, and he asked that I come in for a few minutes. To sign the job offer transferring me from night shift back room to sporting goods sales associate. Yes, you read that correctly. I have nine more scheduled nights on third, after which I will be going to some version of day shift. I’m sure day shift will come with its own special pile of shit, but at least it will be a different pile of shit than the one I’ve been playing in for the last year and a half. And I’ll have a good manager.
In other news, I cooked my first rabbit stew today. Actually, I started it yesterday morning, when I dropped the bunny into the slow cooker. This morning, I peeled and cut up the potatoes, and put them into a saucepan with onions and jalapenos. Then I removed the rabbit, drained the broth into the saucepan, and went to work separating the meat and bones. After more than twenty-four hours of cook time, this was a very easy task, and interestingly enough, the bones only weighed about 4.5 ounces. I added the meat to the veggies and broth, and left it to simmer. It should be ready to eat shortly.
I have a job interview scheduled for tomorrow morning at 0900. It is a for long-term contract position at a semi-green company, and is mechanic/technician type of work. If I get it, my pay will jump by almost 250%, and it will be full-time hours. The only down side is the fact that it is contract, not a direct hire or even temp-to-hire, and there is no indication as to the anticipated duration. The phrase “long-term” in this context usually means at least six months, but there is no way to know. I’m going to give it my best shot, and leave it up to the powers that be to decide if I should get it or not.
