    So, the verdict came in and I didn't make it to the next round. It's alright though, I did have to answer "no" to alot of questions they asked. I was just hoping my facility experience would carry me through to the next round. The one positive out of this has been that my current manager knew I was interviewing, and the interview came a week before our yearly reviews. Guess who got a decent raise?

    Still below the position I was interviewing for, but what can you do. ...

    So, My company posted a job for a dispatching position. It is two pay grades higher then what i'm at now. Where I'm at now is the highest pay grade for a utility locator.

    When I seen the job posting, I did a knee jerk reaction and applied because it was more money. I have made it to the preliminary interview (phone), which is this afternoon. Now that I've made it to the first step, it got me thinking about several things.

    One; I've got it pretty good. I know ...

    I got a text from the new guy yesterday asking if I was busy.

    Let me first start by saying I hate when people ask if i'm busy or awake. Typically I'm both. I'm a lead and am always open for a technical question. I will hang up if you just want to BS, but if it is a ligit question, I have time.

    Back to the text...

    I tell him, " I'm always available for questions, what is going on?"

    He texts back with a question on a small fiber ...

    Well, i'm glad that all sections of society can have "Access" to health care now. What this means for me? Well, I have to join an online wellness program to get a 5% deduction on my premiums to put it back to just a $25.00 increase from last year eventhough, 2015 we took a hit to our coverage. We have successfully negotiated a system wide increase in cost while reducing coverages to our multiple carriers.

    I know, I know. All Health care is going up.... And you are correct. ...

    So... It seems like I can do nothing to light a fire under the new guy.

    He stated to me yesterday, "you treat me like i'm an idiot".


    This was on the heels of me telling him to dot a line in one color, but stripe it in another. We tend to do this when its a line that may have some bends or when we are running low in a certian color of paint (which we were). I told him plain as day. Dot in one color and stripe it in the appropriate color. I was ...
