Good news, fans! I’m back behind the wheel, in a new driving job.
I gotta say, it’s good to get back to work. Granted, I wasn’t jobless very long – about three months – but long enough.
I’ll be driving a shuttle van for a local business, going from one location to the other and back, all day long. The distance, round-trip, is about two miles. Sounds exciting, right?
That’s okay, though; it’s a steady job, the hours are consistent, the pay is decent, and it’s about as low-stress as a job can get.
In other words, perfect for me.
Like I said in my very first post, I enjoy driving, but chauffeuring could, at times, get a bit too crazy for me. Getting to this airport or that hotel or that office on time, dealing with flights arriving too late or too early, last-minute schedule changes, fussy passengers…Aaaaaarrrrrggghhh!!!!
This will be more pleasant, I’m sure. A lot of things other chauffeurs have to deal with will never come up on this job.
I look forward to building a relationship with these people whom I’ll be seeing on a regular basis. Granted, I won’t have much time to talk to them on any given trip but, over time, maybe I can develop friendships with a few of them, anyway. We’ll see.
Regardless, it’ll definitely beat not working. Happy days are here again.
