Back in the Saddle Again

Accepted an offer from an international bank.  I start on 08/27, provided I pass their background checks.  Went today to pee in a cup and got finger-printed like a criminal .. well like "today's" job seekers are required.  Nine weeks between jobs is better than 13 months.  All is well for now.  Using my unemployment pay to pay owed income taxes from last year.  Can't win from losing .. hate taxes.  Does this mean that the current administration gets credit for increased job opportunities?  I'm thinking that doing away with income taxes is the way to go.  Replace it with a national sales tax, or in other terms, a consumption tax.  Then you can get rid of the IRS and run everything with computers controlled by a handful of chimpanzees.

Nothing Lasts Forever

Thirteen months later .. the change has ended.  It was good while it lasted.  I worked from home, saved a lot on gas by not commuting.  The business is not doing that great as circumstances and competition has altered the business landscape; consequently, I am now out of a job again.  I was not the last one in, so LIFO does not apply here.  I wonder if it had to do with my pay .. maybe.  Doesn't really matter.  Contacted my previous employer.  We'll see what is shaking.  Meanwhile, I'll ponder what I really want to do and see if I can make it happen.
