Jim had a phone interview today. He’s been dealing with JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and CitiGroup. He’s had several phone interviews over the past several weeks; I just don’t report each of them. After a while, it obviously becomes depressing for us – especially him when he doesn’t get the job he really wants. I’ve felt that way and am bummed about a couple of my prospects too. No one likes rejection, especially when it becomes more frequent. The banking industry has been very shaky. There’s a lot of people in Jim’s field who are unemployed. There’s a lot of competition. It will happen for us. It’s important to be positive. Positively. I’m positive it’s important. OK, now I’m just being silly. I know, it’s rare.
I was itchin’ to get out of the RV. The other day the Verizon support dude said my air card needed to be in a PC to get updates. We went to Grandma’s. It wouldn’t fit. Then to Jim’s Mom’s. No fit. Then to my Mom’s. It fit jussssssst right. I didn’t see anyway to update the card so I called Verizon. The guy says only the software is updateable not the card. Huh? So why did I run all over town to find a PC? All for nothing. They simply don’t support router usage. Funny, Alltel used to sell this router. The guy says he sees no record that they sold them. How convenient. I was very angry and since I’m typing this a day later, I don’t wanna get all angry again, so I’ll just end this with we’ll live with the occasional ups and downs.
After dinner we loaded ourselves into the BMW and headed to a thrift store for 1/2 after 6pm clothes. Yeah, you can reread that if you’d like. We bought a bunch of stuff though! Jim figured we should get some pants before the weather gets too cold and then the “winter clothes” are picked clean.
