A new chapter begins...

Today I started my new job. I should say "Happy New Year" since this was my first work day of 2010, but I had no problem putting the correct year on any of the myriad of paperwork I had to sign. But some things don't change. I took the same interstate highways going to work this morning and I stopped to say "hi" to Beth. We stayed in contact during my time off work and she was pleased to see I got me a job and enjoyed seeing me in dress pants, dress shirt, and tie.

The trip was less than half what it was going to Cleveland, and I was on the road 3 hours later than before, so I was curious as to what that big, bright, yellow thing in the east was.

There will be a week of classroom training, then time on the phones. Along with paperwork, we saw videos on workplace safety and harassment, things mandated by government agencies. Other important things covered were where the restrooms were and where the break room is.

The new job will be sales oriented, so I will have to be at the top of my game for best results.

I'm looking forward to this chapter.

Thanks Sue. And I know if I need a good traffic report, I can always get an accurate one from the good folks at Akron News Now and I no longer have to depend on the non reports from the folks at Independence.

I'll be giving you and Scott a listen at a later time than I used to.
