The Countdown Begins

I’m 3 days away from ending this hell we call a roll out. The good news is they have asked me to spearhead the next three projects for the remainder of the month…what that you say? Why am I subjecting myself to three more weeks of temp hell?

For the money dummy! See I was yanked off of salary to make this deal happen and they have agreed to keep paying me on an increased hourly rate (including any overtime) for the next three weeks or more depending on how long it takes to get the next set of projects finished.

Using my crystal ball I can see that in the future I am driving a different car AND I just got back from a serious vacation.

Oh yes Money can rent happiness.

I am also flying up to Minneapolis on Thursday afternoon, to meet with a BIG time Corporation and my client which is another million dollar deal, and I have been told that I will get a handsome commission if I can bring the roll out home. Wish me luck, because I think my commission will be about 7% or 70K….now how cool would that be? Of course it could end up being only a firm handshake and a pat on the back which would solidify my search for a new gig or at least help make me see that by not bringing guns to work keeps me from shooting people in the face.

I know with all of the stupidity going on in today’s world I shouldn’t even joke about that, but sometimes I wonder why it doesn’t happen on a daily basis.

Peace out kids, it is time to herd cats, I mean wrangle temps.
