All I want for Christmas ….

is for the husband to get the job he just applied for. It’s work he’d be completely awesome at, close to home, and double his current salary.
He likes his current work well enough, but his boss is a complete nightmare. The boss has zero people skills. I mean absolutely zero. The boss’s views on acceptable work conditions are draconian (he takes unpaid overtime to a whole new level and his complete lack of care for his employees is appalling … when hubby’s parents died, he expected him at work before and after the funeral, despite the fact that the funerals were held 3 hours drive away.) His small talk consists of quipping about his employees as being “lazy bastards” … usually said as they are working out the front door about 2 hours after scheduled knock-off time. He never ever gives complements, only demands.

Anyway, I’m hoping that hubby gets this fantastic new job … and could use any spare internetz job vibes 🙂



He didn’t get past stage 3 of the interview process: their loss.  We are taking the view that this was not the right job for him and that something better will come along.
