One of the reasons I come to Slotblog is to see if Pablo has a new job yet...

Not yet, Dennis. I went to apply today with an armed security company that doesn't accept on-line applications - in person only. So I figured, "Hey, this may be the upscale job I'm looking for." The location was the Mississippi Welcome Center where they give NASA tours at Stennis Space Center.

I also figured the job location would be Port Bienville Industrial Park, which is right down the road.
 
So I showed up and expected to find a recruiter inside the building somewhere at a booth with a long line of applicants. I wasn't sure exactly where to go, so I asked the rest area security guy. I figured he'd know, since that's his job.

Toothless old guy with a uniform, a badge, and a gun sitting on a bench smoking a cigarette. I showed him the referral paperwork from my local job center and asked where to go.
 
He looks at it and says, "Yep, that's with me. It's this job and it starts at $7.50 an hour, no benefits." :laugh2: :laugh2:  He was a nice guy, 71-year old retired police officer working for peanuts.

We chatted for a while and that was the end of my job search. I'd rather push a rusty shopping cart down the sidewalk at the beach and sleep under a newspaper than do that. :dance3:

Build one, sell one, build one, eat one, test the pepperoni, test the guacamole.

Repeat. :dance3:

Can you build a foot-long for $6? I like Subway! :)  Their chocolate chip cookies aren't bad either.

For a 200% tip I could, and I'd throw in a free cookie.

Good, then you'll be building more slot cars.

My job search has officially ended as of today, so I plan to continue building slot cars at my usual "snail's pace." :)
