That's right, i haven't quit, here's the run down. I became a janitor 2 weeks ago, well they gave it a frilly name and called me a custodian but whatever, i think that's just a way they try and make us look like we're somehow ''better'' than cleaning staff, when cleaning staff are important anyway, everywhere. But anyway, i LOVE my job, loved it from day one, and haven't quit. For those of you who are wondering why that would be such a big deal, here's my answer. I have had quite a few jobs in my life. But i really didn't have to work. anyway, i never liked them, and in under 2 weeks, i always quit, well except in volunteer positions. Anyway, this time is different, i love my job, it's so amazing, and the people i work with are really great too. I work nights, and that's always 7pm-3am I won't tell you where but i am employed by a city, benefits are awesome, which i don't really need, but the cool thing is coupled with Stu's benefits, which they did for me, every thing's a hundred percent covered. And i can also get braces, which is awesome too. Anyway this is just an achievement that i am very proud of, and just wanted to update you all if you even care, and um, well just pat myself on the back and document the fact that i can keep a job if i really love it for longer than 2 weeks, and well, I'm not giving this up, so there!

Hi there Spitfire! First, congratulations in getting a job that you love doing! I think that that seldom happens that it's well paying, with lots of benefits, and you love working there too. I hope that this will go on and that you'll find more reasons to love your work more and more each day.

Thanks hun, yeah of everything I've ever done this one tops the cake all the way, with everything, I find reasons to love it every day, and surprisingly, with the kind of person i am (always find something I don't like) i haven't found one downfall for this job.

That's pretty awesome that you've finally found a job that you like. It's even better that you've found a job that you like that has great benefits. It's hard finding a job you like that also can give you the benefits you really need. That doesn't happen too often!

Thanks hun, i think the reason i hated those jobs is because they were in the food industry, and since i love cleaning, i love this job, but it's not just that, because it's nights, i get to utilize all the things i love, nights, being alone, or almost alone, because their's only 3 of us, not having some boss being a jerk all the time and so on, you don't get orders, you just have a bunch of stuff to clean, i just really love it, and know i'll be there for a very very long time. thank you so much for your response.
