Thinking of you SIT. Is there nothing that management can do? Are they willing to lose you? Why not put you at first and have at least someone happy and willing to work? Otherwise, they are in jeopardy of losing you and the others who seem to quit. What is the reason for others quitting so much? Seems like management needs to look closer at the situation.

That's right, I am still waiting, and my patience is wearing thin to the point that I am starting to think about looking for another job. I really don't want to do that, having to start all over at another job, especially at my age.

I like the way you think, Brent.
(So does Carl!)

Definitely something to do with the number 300.
Could it involve the door prize?
The first 300 fired twinkies free?
How about the first 300 iced teas?
A scavenger hunt to find 300 hidden camel ornaments?
Hmmmm...... I wonder.
Come this evening to see. Regardless, you won't be disappointed.
Maybe it's 300 balloons dropping from the ceiling!

You could buy it and then auction it or sell it in the MMC Marketplace ... then you KNOW it'll get a good home.

My son took this picture of me driving the bus this morning.
It was snowy but not to bad. Made me realize how much I miss driving a school bus.


Merry Christmas !!!

Carl has fed me to many fired Twinkies and sweet tea over the years, I am afraid I would get stuck in that thing! Not to mention there is no way I would down it even if I did fit!!
