Since I just got promoted (in real life)(General Pain is his own army commander offcourse) I must sadly say I can't stay here so many hours I used to, real life has come between us hehe....

The good news is that I will earn more money and get free cell-phone and internet mmmmmmm

Happy weekend people

Wow, congratulations. I was informed yesterday that after 10 years with my company I (and the entire state branch I work in) am being made redundant. And because the company I work for has bought out all its local competitors I guess I won't be a media monitor any more.

Back to being an explosives technician I guess (although the girlfriend is against that idea).

Sorry to hear about the option of keeping your job going away. You were hoping to get back in the explosives biz anyway, correct? While I empathize with your GF's concern (this board would not be the same without you), hopefully this will lead to new and exciting (but not too exciting ) opportunities.

In truth, yes. Until the GF came along anyway. I'm pretty sure the huge amounts of money I could earn on the mines will help me convince her. My redundancy just moves things forward by about six months.

Lets face it, most boys love blowing sh*t up. And if the worst did happen, I think it would be a fitting way for a T2Ker to go, don't you?

Well I will admit I am a tiny bit bummed. My three of my top four posters (Mohoender is MIA) all seem to have real life pulling them away from the site a bit. Still happy for all your new opportunities guys.

As for the rest of our posters I expect you all to pick up the slack

I know you guys are not going to disappear, I was just lamenting a potential drop in your post counts since you post quality stuff.

Hmm when I lost my job at the start of the year I considered going back to work as a private contractor as a EOD tech as well.

The wife had more sense than me and knocked said sense into me with a frying pan.

At the end of the day the money would be great but with less and less friendly military units on the ground in Iraq now I have a funny feeling things might turn bad out there again before long.

And as to Afghanistan. There is a hell hole I would not go to even if it was the last job on Earth.

I guess its up to me to pick up the slack from all the re - done - dent ones...

Fortunately for me I am still pulling down 40+ hours a week... but I now work in home renovations and people want to fix it up instead of selling now.

Congrats General Pain... but what are you now --- a 2 or 3 star general?

Speaking of GF... how many times have you been deeply involved in a game... when SHE wants attention in the bedroom...

AND you've put her off!!!

Congrats on promotions and condolences on layoffs. This last year was not the best I've had in the past twenty either. I left my 'retirement' job in MO and moved back to TX about 18 mo ago and have had more jobs in that time since than I had since '68. I'm now back where I was 8 years ago. But it's a job, and it's really almost like going home with the welcome I get from my old customers. (Customer count is up since I returned three months ago. Don't know if I had anything to do with it, but there are guys that have come in that haven't in a couple of years from what I'm told. Does make one feel wanted at least.)
