Congratulations! That's awesome!
So nice to hear some good news for a change!
There's nothing like waking up in the morning,
& not minding/even enjoying, going to work!
I'm 61 & would love to find something that I liked/could do!
I can't stand at a machine in a factory for 8 hours anymore!
I'm not proficient with computers.
The only computer course I ever took,
the 'computer' switched on in the back,
& it used floppy discs that really were floppy!
So anything that requires a computer is out!
And my memory isn't what it used to be,
so no new courses for me!
Older people have good work ethics & are reliable,
but it's hard to find a niche to fit into anymore!
Or a job that doesn't require a lot of stamina!!!
A lot of the factories here went to 12 hour days!
It sounds good! You only work 4 days out of the week.
But you are so tired, that you usually spend the extra day off
trying to get caught up on sleep! Even the younger ones!
My husband is thinking about taking early retirement,
but his employer hopes he doesn't.
He said it's so hard to find good people who want to work!
They don't want hubby to leave!
People, even on 8 hour shifts, sometimes quit after only a few days,
they say the work is too hard! Or a lot of them don't pass the drug test!!!
And even more don't care & do shoddy work!
I'm sure your employer knows,
that they found someone dependable & reliable,
that's why they responded so quickly!
Enjoy, and bask in the feeling,
knowing that you achieved what most people,
can only dream of!!!
