This never happens in real life. Got a call from the last manager in place at my old employer asking me if I would come back as a contractor, part-time to start. Dumb question. It isn't perfect but will pay some bills. I've been having fun as a handyman contractor and will have to disappoint some people and their timetables. I can still get their work done, just not when I figured.

One of the best damn house-repair/handyman/fix-just-about-anything guys I ever met went back to college last fall to get his masters in math education (now that his wife's got her MSNursing) and you'd'a thought that Daddy had taken away all the neighbours' scooters! I definitely regret not having him about for the odd, "My wall is falling in can you fix it?" phonecalls, but I sure did (and do) wish him luck in getting his teaching ticket...

Same to you... hope that this leads into something a bit more comfortable and a lot more profitable.

Let 'em be disappointed, eigh?
