  1. Thinking my Locate career is done :(

    I do wish it happened earlier in the day, but either way, I still was asked to leave.

    The powers at my work have officially decided (and has proceeded to) relieve my Co-worker of his employment from the company.

    So Now i'm officially flying solo. I was hoping that they were going to fill the position so I can have someone during the construction season to train and get up and running to ease the work load. Unfortunately they have decided to "ride" things out a little.
