And it Starts

Yesterday our community experienced our first holiday fatality due to drunk driving. A guy in his pick up truck sailed through a stop sign on a busy highway and rammed a suv killing the driver instantly. It was 5:00 pm and the guy's blood alcohol level was FIVE times over the legal limit. He was barely hurt. The whole thing is just plain sad.

Now here is where everyone gets real angry. This guy had been arrested for drunk driving several times, even losing his license FOR LIFE, and somehow got it back, and after he got it back was arrested AGAIN with a blood alcohol level four times over the legal limit, and somehow the charges were dropped.

Something is really wrong here.

Serveral weeks ago, I got a call from my supervisor asking me if I was wanting full time work, and of course, I said yes. He went on to say that they were given permission to put a full time person on, and that they could move up one of the employees that they took full time away from, and my supervisor said he didn't want him promoted, that he would like me. I was so excited and told a few relatives about it, and while I was telling them I even mentioned something about jinxing it by talking about it. I hadn't heard anything since that call. Well I did jinx it.

Today my other supervisor said that the supervisor that I had talked to stepped down and was being replaced by someone relocating here. Of course there was no mention of the pending promotion for me, and I'm sure won't hear about it again.

I'm so bummed.
