Employer: We got you a full tank of gas, another box of flagging, and upside down paint. Here is a box of 30d’s, and a whole shed-load of wood construction stakes. If need more just let me know. Just be ready @ 5:30 am.....
it's laughable to me how so many companies around here put "free soft drinks" in their list of bennies. dead serious. i worked for one of them for a decade. it was in their job offer letter in 2003, it was on their website the day they were acquired by an even bigger firm in 2016.
Years ago I applied to the University of Idaho to work towards a Masters Degree in Engineering. In their standard packet of information was a section on how wonderful it would be to live in the Moscow area. A highlight was that I could reduce my living expenses by hunting and fishing.
BTW, that was a serious application. I ended up taking a real job so didn't go there.
Heck, ol' Bill B______ had a 25 cent beer fridge at the shop in 1984. Not the biggest fridge but big enough to hold 4-5 cases of Price Club beer (pre-Costco). Summer months, with 4-5 3-man crews, we'd empty that sucker almost daily.
Bill paid 33 cents a can. Thought he would make money. Oops! Lots of money can rattling going on in them days, as I recall. Could get you a breakfast sando in the morning if you were the last one around on a Tuesday eve to load up the fridge for Wednesday.
Has the statute of limitations run out on that? Sorry Bill. I gave you the best union Certified Party Chief effort I had but I may have taken advantage of the 25 cent deal. Bill is no longer with us.
Call it a Covid-19 induced admission. No, I don't have it. Just feel a need to get this off of my chest in this almost-over pandemic.
JA, PLS SoCal
