    Just so you know, I really am a comic dog.

    For reals.

    Office, field, both? I'll try to get back with some thoughts tomorrow when not on phone. Hitting up former advisors/professors not a bad option since you're a little younger

    I wanted to give this a funny, seems like your former coworker has a pretty cool sense humor.

    You've got some experience now so a head hunter? Before you start think what direction you want to head though that will simplify your job search by quite a bit. Good luck and enjoy whichever direction you pursue next!

    Funny how people look at things differently I put him in the experienced category you put him in the younger one. But yeah he would still actually have connections on campus to send out feelers and learn about "unofficial" openings. But we both want him to have success. Happy hunting @cmjh10

    Contacts is huge. Do you know anyone in the med sales area. When is the pork show in DM? Talk to them. Call the ag placement office, they will have leads once in awhile. You have any requirements of staying in the area? I know your large competition doesn’t have the hours that you seem to.

    anybody younger than me is a pup so I feel less old, lol! I thought this was still his first post-college job so I figure that's still close enough that you can reach out to those contacts and they still remember your name.

    If you want to stay in the area, let me know what type of jobs you want or absolutely don’t want, what type of wage you need or what you really want for benefits and I can beat a few bushes of the people around.

    Got about an inch of snow in KC. Once daylight hits I guess it's time to make that final bit back to Omaha

    Is there anything more frustrating the chugging along with your snow blower or shovel and then slamming into a crack in the concrete and running to it full force? Got done blowing off drive an hour ago and I’m still pissed.

    If Betty White can do it, I'm sure you can figure it out.

    Not solely office (would be bored), but not solely field as well. Biggest thing is more consistent hours and schedule. Been putting in crazy hours lately and can not get ahead.

    Yeah, hitting said crack with a shovel and about castrating yourself

    I don’t feel like working today. Boss gonna be mad that I didn’t do jack after I got home yesterday. Now heater in garage is toast I believe. Wife volunteered to work a concession stand but forgot she has some other commitment at the same time, so that means I ended up volunteering. Good pickup now in the shop because it was blowing exhaust into the cab.

    This weekend is not looking like a fun leisurely one.

    That woman made an offer on the house. We countered and she accepted. House was never even officially listed. Now we need to wait for her to secure financing.

    My wife and daughter are volunteering at a concession stand for a basketball tournament tomorrow. I got out of that because I'm coaching. I'm not sure that I got the better end of the deal though. Actually, this year's team is a lot of fun. The kids get along so well.

    I went to conferences last night for my son. I visited with 4 of his teachers. Two said that he's very quiet and two said that he's very outgoing.

    Sounds like you have a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation going on.
