What a way to end September!
I got a text from my friend at US Bank around 2:30 to call her boss - turned out she'd been trying to get me on my home phone since 11:30!! And, yep, I got the job. Man it is so nice to willingly leave a job and find a new one instead of being scared and frightened and depserately needing a job.
WOOHOO Party on Garth!!!!
So, I'm in this extreme crazy place in my mind - you know one of those moments of feeling so much relief and being utterly smug that you're not going to have to be stuck in an awful situation any more? It's one of those times when you feel like you can do anything - and you're willing take chances and live life to the fullest. This is the mood I was in when I received a call from Boomer. She had just spent an hour in the middle of Manchester in Ballwin trying to save a dog that was darting in and out of traffic. The dog was too terrified to come to her and actually was grazed by a car (knocked over even!) and then ran into a car himself. Then, an employee with Dobbs and about 4 police cars had to help her out in order to corral this dog.
While I was at work, there was all sorts of serious craziness going on - unbeknownst to me two other people had planned on quitting today so I was the 3rd one who went and broke the news. Maybe that's why they needed to get in a couple of jabs at me? Ah well who cares - see ya! Wouldn't wanna be ya!!!
Then Boomer gives me a call and said she misjudged the size of this dog and I have to admit my first thought was "Oh shit, what did I just get myself into?" But I told her that it was no problem because I was taking next week off so it wouldn't be too hard to manage a bigger dog. A little after I gave my notice I was told that today would be my last day since I had vacation planned for next week and that it was in the best interest of the branch for me to just go ... whatever
Boomer had to pick up her hubby from the airport and she said she'd meet me in WestPort where I workED so I'm sitting in the parking lot after I had to turn in all my stuff - parking pass, keys, etc, and up rolls Boomer and Brett. When they opened up their hatch and introduced me to the new boy, he was even bigger than I imagined!! But he's so good - he rides in a car perfectly.
