A week out,and I'm still sick from being in a cold storage sector of that last job. Can't seem to shake a nasty cough. I think it's bronchitis,but I've been taking cough syrup and the token cold meds for it. I put out 6 applications this week,and already had 1 rejection. I 'll keep trying before i sign up for unemployment insurance. I have alot to contribute,I just need to find the right fit for me. One things for sure, I'll never go back to what I was doing. Customer service isn't for me.😡😤😕

Bronchitis is a pain and its going to hang on for awhile, so the more rest you can get the better. Id sign up for unemployment now as they'll require you to keep looking anyway.
Ive been on the customer service side for a long time and its not easy at all.

I'm waiting till after the first of the new year to see if the Board will increase my salary or give me a bonus. Depending on what happens, I may retire early next year. Given some health issues are cropping up, I wont work beyond 70, unless theres no other choice.

This job is kinda high tech. I'm hoping I get it. It's in the RIDC park where the cold storage job was,only a little closer..!😁

Shielding for EMP and radiation. I got the job..!😁 This company does alot of classified government work,so I can't talk much about the work. Suffice it to say,it's something I can physically do, till I can retire,provided my health holds up. It's only 5.1 miles from me.!
