I know many of the good people on this forum have an abiding faith in the Almighty, as do I. I wonder if I could impose on you to throw some prayers skyward in my behalf???
I've been working at my present job at an Army Depot for over 11 years. I like the job overall, but it is 60 miles away, and the commute, especially in the evening, goes through the heaviest traffic Utah has to offer. It ends up being 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day on the commute alone. Aside from the time wasted polishing a seat, I have to get up a 3:45 am to get to work by 6. Since we work 10 hour days, I don't get home until 6:15 or so in the evening. I have Fridays and the weekend off, but I'm so tired by Friday that it sometimes takes me most the morning to get going on the day.
I just turned 60, and I'm tired...Aside from riding a school bus 2 hours each day as a kid, I've had at least a 50 mile round trip commute with practically every job I've had.
I've been trying to find a job at Hill AFB since it's is a mere 3 miles up the road from me, but to no avail until earlier this week. I got a call to schedule a job interview for 2 jobs at Hill--same pay and grade, but a heck of a lot closer... THEN, I got a call a couple hours later that they had to cancel all the interviews, but someone would be contacting me in a couple weeks to reschedule. Apparently the original selecting official is going on TDY next week.
This is most unusual--I've been a selecting official on several positions, and chaired interview panels, etc., and I've never seen nor heard of someone cancelling interviews--rescheduling, yes, but I'm a little worried that I may not hear back from them.
So, any prayers in my behalf would be much appreciated... aside from being able to get a little more shuteye in the morning, I'll have more time in the evening to play poo.... err work on my tractors... (I don't play pool very often---I just tell my wife my tractor hobby keeps me out of the pool halls)
Anyway, thanks in advance
