Nothing special

Two more days and the job from hell is finished. Unless something pops, I'll be unemployed. So what did I do about this today? I read a proof of the method of proof by induction. Do you think that mathematicians may be a tad anal if they feel the need to prove that a method of proof is valid?

It's that obsession with detail - it will get you every time. *grin* I hope you can find a new job, really fast, that you like or at least don't despise!

Thanks, Teresa. I actually had two people from the same company ask if I'd be interested in a job there. I guess all the telephone conversations the last 3 weeks weren't entirely wasted. Of course, the company is no where around here, but it's the thought that counts. *grin*

Yeah, isn't it great to get unexpectedly nice feedback like that. Way to go!

Teresa - It is great. Under different circumstances I might have actually put an application in with the company. Oh well, there's always Wally World. :-)

Teresa said...

ACK! I know there's Wally World, but I hope you find something better!

Not that I want to work at Wally World, but they actually pay quite well for this area. Now that is a sad statement.
