Been a busy couple weeks since the last reveal of information about my current occupational status. And although officially I haven’t been told anything different than the last message of “Don’t quit your current job yet”, I’ve been working at my new job. Well…working is a term I use loosely. I’ve been getting trained…which is also a loosely used term. I’ve been watching videos in a dark room whilst doodling so I don’t fall asleep. There…accuracy is key, folks.
Anyways, I believe it’s now safe enough to give the official blog reveal of my newest career. I’m a mailman! You know. Those guys who walk around town with the cool messenger bags wearing Han Solo pants? Yeah, that’s me. No…not the Mormons!
So…yeah. That’s what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life. Or at least for the next month or so through the holidays until I get completely exhausted of being out of the house for 10 hours a day six days a week.
On the bright side, I get to travel for work for the first time ever. Well, I think it’s the first time ever. There was that one time where me and the lady both got sent somewhere for a basketball game, but I believe history has shown that trip was more about her than me.
A couple nights in a hotel without the wife and kids. It’s honestly a little scary. Who is going to tell me what I want to eat for dinner? Or that I should go to sleep? Or act as my alarm clock in the morning?
I guess it’s a good thing that my hotel room is just a couple blocks away from where I’ll be sitting in a dark room watching videos, meaning the commute won’t be much worse than it has been for the last 7 years.
Anyhoo, seeing as this is my profession now, I’m going to probably keep pretty mum about it on here, you know, with the whole everyone is watching mentality that we’re supposed to have. I’d hate to have my boss misinterpret something I type on here and think that it means that I’m a terrible employee. Which I’m not. I’m actually quite eager to begin a job that will actually have me working hard during the entire time I’m on the clock. I’m also quite eager for that to finally happen, as these trainings I’m doing are getting quite long…no offense boss-person who is possibly reading this. Seriously, don’t fire me.
So, yeah, that’s the scoop for those of you who have been awaiting the official news. I’m guessing I’ll be out on the road as early as Monday of next week…but as of this point, the scheduling has been rather last minute on everything.
Speaking of last minute, I’ve got a ton of things to get done around the house before I become a working man again. Got the Christmas lights up outside already…which seems rather wrong. Now time to finally finish cleaning out that basement which has been begging for it since we moved in 8 or so years ago…
Have fun out there!
