Good to hear you are back healthy enough to be looking for work.

So who cares about paper work. Everyone does it one time of another. I never complained.

Actually, that was the week before I broke my arm. I haven't been looking for work ever since I knew I was going to have joint-replacement surgery. Afterward, though, I'll be looking for "little" jobs that I can handle with one temporarily-limited arm and an assistant (such as my wife, lol).

Let us pray.......Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change, the courage to change the things i can and the wisdom to know the difference. And Lord, please strike my evil boss down. amen.

Just keep petitioning the Lord with prayer.

Its all relative though. Where do you live, where do you do business, what type of insurance, what are you insuring, etc?
