Today, I had an interview at FedEx for a package analyst position. I got to leave work at 11:15am, which was nice. I took the 28x to the airport. Once I got to my car, I went home for a bit. I was still a bit too early. I needed to get the towels in the dryer. Drew was at a conference in Cranberry. I wasn’t sure what to think about being at FedEx again. I left the house at 1:00pm for my interview.
Once I arrived to FedEx. The security guard recognized me and checked me in, and gave me the same picture badge, that I had on my first day at FedEx. It was kind of cool. While I was waiting for Jane to come escort me to the interview. Brandon, walked by and I made a face at him. He laughed and walked into the lobby. He gave me a hug and we took a selfie together. I was glad to see him. He was always so funny and so bad. Jane came and got me, she escorted me to the interview, where I met another Jane.
When I sat down, Jane went on and on about the position. I would pretty much be chasing packages and trying to get them out of audit, and blah blah. There is a lot of down time with this position (No different than the Jazz Department). She wouldn’t take a breathe it seemed, so I chimed in and said, “Well let me tell you where I am coming from. I have waited all summer for Pitt’s temp department to call. I couldn’t wait to hear from them. I turned down offers. I wanted to wait just for them. When they called me, I started out at Katz, and then went to the Music Department and that’s where I am now. I don’t think this position with Fedex is for me. I am honored to meet you both, but I am going to have to decline. It is just not something I am willing to leave Pitt for.” She said, she completely understands, her best friend formed her career out of the Pitt Temp’s department. That is where she started. Then the other Jane stated a statistic and said, “Well you know 80% of temps get offered full-time at Pitt.” I said, “I hope to be one of those cases.”
After departing from them, I went around to visit my old Fedex friends; Kurt, Jim, Patty J, Gene, Swarlotha. It was nice to see everyone again. I got coffee at Starbucks from my old coffee ladies. They all asked if I was coming back. I said “No, I don’t think so not right now. I am with Pitt and I love it there. I am honored they asked me to interview here, but that is as far as it goes for now.”
When I got home, I had to get ready for the rehearsal dinner. I turned on the movie Ghost. I watched the end of it, then got up and did some laundry. Drew called me and told me that Tommy is on his way over to get ready at our place if that was okay? I said, Yes that is okay, I just need to get in the shower. Drew was on his way home, when I finally got out of the shower, and Tommy arrived, while Drew was in the shower. It was cool to see him, the day before his wedding. It’s awesome that he is getting married.
We all arrived at to the rehearsal dinner together, Tommy was coming down with a cold, but still trying to be funny. I got family and group pictures with the bridesmaids and Megan. The Hornyaks and the Rusks. It was nice. Everyone hates when I take pictures except Megan was glad that someone was taking pictures.
After the rehearsal dinner, we went back to our house, and Tommy slept on the couch. I went to bed shortly after we got home, and let them have bro time. They stayed up and watched High Fidelity. I was sound asleep when Drew came up to go to bed. Big day for everyone tomorrow.
