Boss: So tomorrow's your last day? Nothing for you to really do. It's up to you if you want to stay -- you'll still get paid.

Me: Hmmm... (Took me about ten minutes to pack up and walk out)

Here's to the two and a half years of zombifying graveyard shift. Here's to the self-contradicting management, and the RFID project that never went live because the plant shut down. Here's to the titanium in my leg and the paychecks still coming till October.

I'm free.

Anyone want to go to dinner tonight? Saturn perhaps? :)

I already made plans for tonight, but congratulations all the same. I've had more than one job I've wound up wanting to escape.

Hmmm, yeah, I worked a 12 hour 3/4 day a week schedule out at IBM SSD, in the plater surfacing building. Bad enough not working (I waited for things to go wrong so I could fix them), I'd hate to have to had work the whole time.

It can be nice to get out.

Congratulations! I'm just now reading this, and I don't drive during rush hour, so I can't go to Saturn, but you definitely celebrate!

Dang it, you already logged off aim, and I was taking a nap and I'm probably too far away.

I figured I'd post my excuse, since everyone else did. :) :P

I'd go, but Saturn doesn't have much for me to eat. :I

I'll still go if you'd like, and I can have ice cream.

Time to get the chip removed? At least I'm assuming the titanium is a chip they had implanted in you, given that whole RFID thing.

Heehee. RFID was for the cassettes of hard drive disks that went through the plant...

The titanium went in my leg to make it more sturdy after the fall off the ladder broke my femur. (http://anysize.org/~ashi/xrays/)

Ah, I did not know about the rod in leg. Of course, that could lead to amusing lines like "hey baby, did you know that I've a titanium rod?" ;P

I still owe you dinner at Saturn in exchange for clutch-driving lessons. If you still want to do it, let me know if you want to before or after you go to Venezuela. :)
