    Thanks. I've been putting long hours in trying to find a job. I have even walked in "cold" off the street asking for a manager. Nothing is out there.

    The first couple of weeks you guys would not have been able to stand me.
    I was like a j*nkie coming off of something. There's a few walls left in the house & I've been told everything can be repaired. <--jk

    Judging from your home closet improvement you could hire out as a carpenter! :laugh2:

    Seriously, hope you find something soon.

    I noticed the "typo" earlier this a.m. & I fixed it. I'm sorry.
    Beating up my spell checker as we speak.

    Yes, but "hoe" is actually a garden tool, so no spell checker will pick that up!:tounge:

    It should have realized my mistake & beeped loudly & insistently to alert me of the "syntax" error. I am still blaming "spell checker".
    *bad spell checker! go sit in the corner*

    Sure, blame the spellchecker for your Freudian Slip, haha.

    By the slippery skin of my frog ass i barely made it through some corporate layoffs today. Got moved though to another group...from cush to mush. Same pay but there is a chance my shift would be evenings or graveyard...not good! I'd miss one of my three kids hockey practice/game almost everyday. Might have to become a true full time TreeFrog again....back to the trees!

    Bummer... still waiting to see if I'm gonna get moved to another department myself. I'm kinda hoping to get moved back to nights though. I'm on the early shift right now (6am). I'd much rather do the night shift (430pm - 1am).

    Good Luck TreeFrog!!!
    Still haven't found a job (no one is hiring around here, not even McD's).
    It can only go "up" don't you think? Hopefully we have hit bottom?
