Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Good Music Friday — Almost Saturday Edition

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on January 26, 2018

This has been one of those weeks where it just never ends.
Interview went great.
Turns out they aren’t Scientologists.
Then they offered me a lot more money than I’m making now, and a better work environment, only a few minutes away from the homestead, to do interesting work.
I accepted.
Then the current employer decided to trump their offer in order to keep me.
And they did trump the offer, at least as money goes.
Yet the shitty work environment would remain, as well as the horrible commute.
BUT.
Since my plan is to ditch it all anyway to move to greener pastures in the next 18 to 24 months, maybe money is the ultimate concern here.
THEN.
I am informed at 5:01PM Pacific Time today that a university I haven’t attended in something like 10,000 years, on the other side of the country, won’t release my academic information to the company performing the background check on me for the new employer whom I thought were Scientologists but thankfully are not.
So to sum up, I have two great offers, one of which I’ve already accepted, but is not as good monetarily as the other, but is far superior in every other way, but there may be background check issues for that for some reason, and I basically have to decide by Monday if I accept the offer for more money to stay at my shitty job, and commit to the awkward process of backing out of a signed offer acceptance for the nicer job, or if I stand pat, pray that there are no issues with the background check, and get on with livin’.
THIS IS NOT HOW I WANTED TO SPEND MY WEEKEND, IF I CAN BE PERFECTLY HONEST WITH YOU.
Since it’s officially DRINK O’ CLOCK, I’m out.
Have a great weekend, y’all.
Hopefully a better weekend than I’m starin’ down.
