Thursday & Still No Word
Although we know that the company says they want Darryl to come out on a second interview we still have no word about when. All day I've been on pins and needles. Not Darryl. He just seems to take it all for granted that it will work out.
We did learn something interesting about Trinity Rail today. Darryl had me stand on line at customer service to return an ironing board we had bought. The ironing board had a bent leg stand but we didn't notice it until we got it out of the wrap. While I stood there Darryl went to get another ironing board.
While standing there I noticed a man wearing a shirt that I recognized from our closet. It was a Trinity Rail shirt. I struck up a conversation with the gentleman and he told me that Trinity has reduced their hours from four ten hour days to three ten hour days. The plant closes in three weeks. As a matter of fact they are closing this plant and their plant in Mexico. We didn't even know they were going to do that. We got the impression that they were just going to relocate their operations to Mexico. Instead they are closing both plants.
Every year I enter the Edy's Ice Cream Block Party and I usually win every year. So far no word. I notice that some people on OLS are beginning to learn that they've won. If I remember correctly though they contact you closer to when your party is to be held. Maybe I won for a later date. Who knows. I just know that I love winning it and trying all the ice cream.
