I had to change work a few weeks ago when my wife got a teaching position with an out of state university district.
- My wife graduated from school while in the summertime and she applied to a lot of weird places.
She interviewed with a couple of universities and a place near the beach offered her a full-time position! I knew that I was going to transfer somewhere that my wife was offered a job. I did not expect to transfer almost 10 hours away from home. I was hopeful that she would find employment with a university district in our state. The beach was a fun and exciting opportunity. I was previously working for an heating & A/C company for many years and it was taxing to leave the place and seek employment somewhere else. I had a lot of fun finally working with all of my co-workers and my best friend worked at the heating & A/C supplier as well. Both of us often ran tests on the same tasks and we spent a lot of time together after work. Both of us watched a lot of football games and we drank a lot of beer. I had a lot of fun at work, even when we were tied up with repairs and replacement tasks. My current coworker isn’t as much fun as my old friend.The guy is close to retirement and he seems to not care about coming to work every afternoon. Both of us get to look at the beach most of the afternoon and 90% of our tasks are straight-forward repairs and replacements. There is no way the guy can be so miserable when we get to look at appealing scenery.
