    Very good news, Dennis. I hope things work out.

    As far as how employers view old? Don't worry about it. With experience comes value and many employers are finding out the hard way how millennials are a loss, no matter how cheap they come.

    As a complete aside, a guy stopped by the house who sells and delivers allegedly top-grade steaks, seafood and chicken. He was canvassing the neighborhood trying to build his route. (Think Schwann’s but local.) he sold me 8 2-Oz fillets for $30. Yummy.

    Are those fillets or medallions?

    Well heck, Dennis. You messed up and got a job!
    The least you could have done is take a few weeks off and let Hairy use you as a chew toy!

    They look like filets to me, but who knows? In his product book they’re listed as such.

    Hairy’s been using me as a chew toy for months; I’m just trying to survive. But it’s all worthwhile when he lays against my back when the lights go out at night and I hear him sigh with contentment.

    This is a good time for you to reduce your expenses and put some money aside for retirement, especially at your age and potential unemployment, just saying.

    Awesome. I know what you mean about the cautiously optimistic side. But it’s probably fine.

    Employers are finding out that the younger generations are too adolescent like. My two 50 something relatives both have basic production jobs at Honda, a 35 minute drive at least, because too many of the young people can’t show up on time, have issues with social skills, do well for months, maybe a year, then they quit or start slacking. The plant even had to expand their hiring area, my guess is due to a lack of good hires from the prior county area applicant zone.

    I’m now looking at industrial electric and/or robotics. The program director for the industrial maintenance tech said age doesn’t matter. He said age doesn’t matter as companies can’t find good, stable employes and he said pay is really good. He also said it isn’t just the millennial generation, but they comprise a large block of the issues with employees.

    Congratulations Dennis!

    Be careful of the toes you step on today....they may be connected to the arse you have to kiss tomorrow!

    Theoretically yes. I was supposed to start tomorrow, but my primary contact is in the field all week, and they bumped the start date to next Monday.

    So my pucker factor remains.

    The go-live date for my current project was also bumped to next Monday (sigh). I need to do the data migration for that.

    Me too, but I feel better if I have work lined up all the time, being self employed.

    Just wish you could get all of the unemployment fees your employers have paid into the funds on your behalf. After a year if you don't use it, you lose it. Stupid system.

    Inless your do contract work.

    You're getting a transition out of one job right into the next one? Double awesomeness-no lag between paychecks I bet. That's excellent.

    It's always good to have a little break between jobs-not months on end, but a weekend to mentally prepare for the new job is good. Helps with the paychecks too-hopefully no break in them. No break in the kibble express!

    You and the dogs are going to be fine. I am so happy things are working out for you.

    Good, let us know how it goes!
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.
