Surreality

So, I survived my first day of work/training. It is like stepping back into a time warp, almost like I never even got off the merry go round in the first place. Or even more, like I stepped back into the Mr Peabody time machine. I can not go into specifics, because I am not allowed to, but the job certainly does have a promising upside.

The commute is not fun, too much construction in too many places. Of course, that is driving in Southeastern Pennsylvania, so it is just about what I have expected. I should be calm for the next two weeks or so, just get ready for full blown hysterics when I am done with training. That maybe when the fun really begins.

Whoa! Stop right there Sparky! I obviously missed the post that the mortorium on mentioning "good lucks" and what not for job interviews was over...spill, ummm, details please :-)

I know the clothing update went well, I'm with Mrs Duck, not fair how much we have to spend.

hugs Sparkle - you'll blow them away. no hysterics.
you're not allowed to embrace the whole "work sucks" mentality until at least day 3.

You have a secret job. OOOooooh.

You want to tell me about construction, ok London is constantly under construction, it does NOT have a ring road and I live in South and work in the North end. ARGH, so the only way that was not under construction sunk. The road caved in.

ARgghh. Anyways enough of that. Good luck on the new job. :)

Tug said...

YAY for the job!! (I was going to say 'yay for jobs', but then thought of mine). Just think of the upside that can't be talked about while going through the construction... ;-)

And Sparky? Suck it.

Why did I JUST notice the twitter from 6 days ago??

heh

Woohoo on the job! Training is always fun (I was a trainer until three weeks ago), and I'm sure you'll be fine even once it's done.

*does the snoopy dance with Sparky*

Red Garnier said...

Sparky you'll do fantastic, and for histerics, leave that to the girls? LOL.

Mr. Duck!! My commute into PA took me over an hour this morning and I got so mad that I almost hit people by trying to cut them off. I have patience issues when driving. I can't STAND that much traffic.

I understand what you are saying about work. I'm nervous cause I can be too loud... too outgoing... too questioning and people can take me the wrong way and I really want this work to work. (ha)

Yet another thing I don't miss about the corporate world - the commute. Ick.

Glad to see it shows promise.

InterstellarLass said...

Arrgh. Commute. That is a dirty word. Hopefully the job will make up for it. Of course, it's a job. What makes up for that?

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Nope, constrution's not a SouthEastern PA thing. It's a Pennsylvania thing.

Didn't you know that our state bird is the orange barrel?

Bond said...

One thing I do love about living here, my commute is about 6 minutes...

Tug said...

Hey Bond...did you read his Twitter?

FRIGGA said...

Dude, I'm such a slacker on my blog reading... CONGRATULATIONS on your new job!!! :P

Annie said...

Whoa, being incommunicado lately bites, so belated CONGRATULATIONS!!!! to you! Welcome back to the working world, Sparks my friend. And you should be used to the crap traffic; you lived in Jersey most of your life! Two words: Route 1. :) Really, tho, best wishes and luck and all that jazz. Show 'em what ya got!
