I found a job. Cool!

I'm working at the place in Rutland. I called Lance, the guy who's starting the restaurant, and he couldn't take me on to help with the construction and moving-in process for insurance reasons, so I went with the employment agency's offer. I'm pretty impressed with them, really - I called them Monday (IIRC), saw them Tuesday morning, was offered a job on Wednesday, and if I hadn't wanted an extra day to give the restaurant a start, I could have started on Thursday. Considering that I had been looking since June 16th (interrupted by the family reunion, sure, and maybe not looking as hard as I could have been, but still), I think that's pretty damn good. I'll probably give them a call next summer.

Anyways, the job in Rutland. It's in a junk mail factory. There are machines that stuff envelopes, and my job is to keep a machine running - load the various parts of the letters, clear any paper jams - and put the finished envelopes in mail cases. Today, for example, Rose (the woman training me) and I turned boxes of enveloped and huges rolls of uncut letters into 17,000 credit card offers for Chase Bank. Yes, it is every bit as exciting as it sounds. But it's easy, it's the second highest-paying job I've ever had, and it's the only thing I could find that would take me for the rest of the summer, so I'm not complaining.
