Yeah, Trigger


OK, I'll play. Unemployed since I got laid off in July. Turned down an offer a couple weeks ago and recently found out my boss is trying to get my job in the budget for next year, so things aren't too bad.

This was why I turned down the job offer. Took me 45 minutes to get to my interview at 2:00pm
