    Well, that's a better attitude than I had when I was doing that kind of job. They always caused terrible insomnia. Hope it works out.

    You're dead on with the contrast of the two options, rube. One is as a call center operator, the other as a traveling commercial concrete polisher. The latter pays better at the end of the day, so of course I'd rather do that.

    This weekend, just gonna relax with the girl and wait for Monday to come around, when I simultaneously turn 25 and turn my life back around.

    Drought or drenching. Feast or famine. It's true, seems like there's never a middle ground.

    It's gonna be the call center job... for now.
    I called them today to ask about it. The secretary told me that the whole "If there's an orientation on Monday, could you start then?" was to test my willingness and flexibility, since from time to time an assignment will come up sooner than expected. They typically start new hires on Monday, since that's the start of the pay period. It was just that being interviewed yesterday afternoon was too last minute. So I'm still being considered to start on the 16th.
    Meanwhile, I've got the call center to put money in the bank. I just need to keep quiet about the concrete polishing until the end of next week, or risk getting pulled off the call center before I'm ready.
