I don't work there anymore

Hey I quit Comcast, and I couldn't be happier about it. Just thinking that I don't have to go back there makes me smile. However, I did get benefits, and I'm stockpiling insulin. Also I broke my tibia longboarding and I've had to get some care for that, so I'm making them pay for the time I put in one way or another.

I'm working at a residential youth center down the street. My commute will go from 45 minutes by car, to 5 minutes by bike. That's awesome, but the money isn't. My personal family unit may double in size next year, so finances are a concern of mine these days. I guess I should stop answering all my job interview questions by flexing my bicep, but I mean, check this out... (wait I guess you can't see that.)


This is what I'm reading right now. It's incredibly funny, really. But it's just not that good. Read it if you want to have a laugh and don't mind egregious use of the 'f' word. I'll explain to the most innocent of you what the 'f'' word is in a future post:

I used to work at a call canter at Ricks. I spent most of my time asking questions like, "Do you know all the great things Phillip Morris does for America?" and "Would you say that Phillip Morris has -
A. made America great
B. made America a military superpower
C. better than penicillin and the Polio vaccine combine?
The "questionnaire"(brainwashing) lasted just over 45 minutes if you really sped through it.
I just don't understand why you quit.

I don't know if I read this right, but are you saying you might be getting married?

I second that -- are you on the verge of engagement?! And CONGRATULATIONS on quitting Comcast and making your life 100% happier! I know that's how I felt when I quit two jobs ago.

Weird, there was no word verification, just the words "Visual verification." But now it wants me to write "miteziz." Use that word in a sentence.
