Leviathan meets the Incredible Hulk

Well, That Was Fun

Posted on 2011.06.08 at 18:24
So, my contract position at Megatronics ends Friday.

Employment: It was fun while it lasted.

Nothing in life is permanent -- least of all a Temp job!

I'm sorry - I hope something else as good or better comes your way soon.

I enjoyed it while it lasted, and I found out today, before leaving that there's a permanent opening, so I put in an application. All I can do is re-open my Unemployment claim, and apply, apply, apply.

I hope it's not irritatingly Pollyannaish, but I hasten to point out that, having gotten this one, you are just as likely to get another.

Here's hoping, anyhow...

I've put what I hope are a couple of irons into what I hope are a couple of fires. We'll see.

Hey, as I said, it's three months of work, three months of paychecks, and, I think, three additional months of Unemployment benefits.

Not as good as a long-term permanent gig, but better than sitting on my ass at home sending out resumés and getting no response.

You already know this, but I'm genuinely sorry you're not working there anymore.

Just, tons of good wishes. Naturally, this job ended because the cosmic perfect job is coming soon, just waiting in the stratosphere.

Well, I'll plug away until I'm working again, but at the same time, it'll give me more time at the keyboard. Writing some attempted pay copy seems likely.

(There's a premise for a Science Fiction story about future police dogs -- not related at all to The Bad Hamburger -- that I've been thinking about lately.)

Well, I think with a little time and a little luck, you could end up pulling in at least what you did at Megatronics! You're certainly good enough!
