my old boss from my current job has a nice position with a company in downtown pittsburgh. mind you i am literally 3.1 miles from my front door where i work now so commute even in shitty sw pa winter is barely and after thought.

i say this because he let me know he is working with his bosses on his budget and he wants to bring in someone full time that he can trust and he has told me for the past year if this happens im first on his list.

now im in a pickle because i do love the short commute and the job but the politics is crappy. everyone is expected to follow procedure when you deal with their department but when we ask people to do the same for us they cry and whine to their supervisors who then go to our supervisors who then tell us to make this a priority etc..

the company he works for is fairly successful and well known in the IT community so i dont think its going to be like a $1 hour raise in salary but more like $4-6. plus their medical benefits are pretty top notch (his wife just had their third kid and his co-pay for a C-section was less than $200 for her whole procedure and stay)

i hate driving and the commute will probably be about an hour each way unless i move (highly unlikely at this point)

i guess its good to have choices...

I like a longish commute. Plenty of time to listen to podcasts and relax.

I currently have a 40 min commute, half of which is MO hills, and I hated it at first but I'm beginning to like it more. This is a tough one, Peeps. I wouuld make a long 'pros and cons' list.

Atlanta is going to host the next Super Bowl.
It looks like I am going to a Super Bowl related project.
It does not look like a fun one. :(

Dude, this is a major bar in a major city in a state that has strict booze laws. What’s harsh to you is probably a matter of perspective.

That being said, this situation was unique. She was trusted to close the bar on Monday nights without me or my other manager, counting money, drinking company product. Regulars and staff saw her do it. That’s not really something that can stand.

You just reminded me of a book I read last year: Ablutions by Patrick deWitt.

My new office is not climate controlled. It's cold in the winter and hot in the summer. It's spring so it's both right now - cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon. Very odd.
