Default New Job!

After 3 interviews, a ride-along, drug test, and a physical, I was finally offered a position at a commercial dishwasher and cleaning chemical manufacturer. This company leases the units, so I would be checking in to make sure everything is running smoothly, and try to sell them extra chemicals and things.

So, I just put in my two week notice, and boy did it feel good.

I won't be cramped up in an office anymore (not as much HBT though ). Plus I'll be making 60% more money!!!!!

Sanitizer (chlorine bleach basically), dish washing detergent, and tons of different degreasers and cleaners. It is really really expensive stuff though.

I worked for a really small company that just doesn't pay well.

I am moving. But after that I need a grain mill, a bigger propane burner, and some more cornies and Better Bottles. I am sure that list will grow too
