I had been getting used to my new plan. I would work two different jobs and move out, closer to the city, with Mr Connection…
I hadn’t foreseen extra options.
On Saturday morning, a few days after I signed my contract, I woke up, made a cuppa and the phone rang. It was another company asking me to come and work for them. One I’d contacted several times over the last 6 months and they finally have work available. Apparently it has rained so much that they are behind on several jobs and need extra people to get them done. I would have work till the end of the financial year.
So… two jobs to choose from…
Job 1 – Two days a week, 1.5-2 hrs of driving each way, 7am start (4am wake-up), anonymity, they were nice to me/gave me work first, put lots of effort into getting this job, big reputable organisation
Job 2 – Three days a week, up to 1 hr of driving each way, 8am start (6am wake-up), higher rate of pay, I already have friends there, put lots of effort into getting this job, seems too suspiciously easy
I have postponed my start date of Job 1. I meet the boss of Job 2 on Thursday and do some work/trial for them. We suss each other out. We talk.
And then I choose.
