Well, my new job is over. The Boss tried switching and/or reassigning different responsibilities and I ended up with a job I absolutely didn't want. Apparently, my displeasure was quite apparent, which I did not mean to show, but I was very nice when asked I told her this was not the job I applied for and not the type of job I wanted. There was all kind of technical difficulties involved which is a big problem when everything is remote and there is no IT available. So, I am mostly glad. I will miss the money. I forgot how much fun payday was, but now I don't have to worry about making too much money for the affordable living apartment I am in line for.
So, on the way home from handing over my keys, I decided to drop my car off at the shop because the air condition I just had fixed wasn't cooling. I take an Uber home across town for $30. A little while after I get home, they call and tell me they ran a diagnostic and it was cooling to 64 or some such something. So, I take another Uber back to the garage. The young fella wanted to charge me for running a diagnostic, but the owner waived it. It pays to be a repeat customer. We discuss how it could be that it didn't cool for me. Obviously, I do know how to work my own AC. Oh well, about froze me out on the way home so it must have been some kind of error on my part. (insert: Me shaking my head)
Then I notice as I am about to get on the freeway that my Empty light in on. I always keep gas in my car and don't know how this happened either. I take one of these paid expressways to go downtown and there is no getting off and on, so I'm clinching my shoulders and behind - that's how worried I was about running out of gas. I make it to the first gas station I see and gas is $4.59 there. Ouch. The card reader is out but I have a $20 bill so I buy that much. One-half tank? What? I have a small tank too. Oh well, I didn't run out in the middle of the expressway so I'll take it as a win.
Man on man, what a day. I had three of those midget candy bars when I got home! Ha. I'm afraid to go anywhere or do anything. If I read my horoscope this morning, I am sure it said not to get out of bed today. Having said that ....
Life is good if you roll with the punches.
