    I'm the happiest guy in town! I just got a call today-Looks like I'm going back to DELTA! :D :D :D

    I got laid off about 2 years ago and have been working for an MRO (Timco). The pay was great because most of it was Per-Diem, which is exempt form state & federal income tax for up to a year. Well, I was coming up on 12 months, so I took 2 months off, but was about to go back to work again. I was planning on another year of long drives and tax free money, but Mother-D said come on home.

    I know I sound like a kid at Christmas, but I really liked working for Delta. Pay is good, but the benefits are great. The best part is I got laid off right before my vacation rolled over and my pay review. So a couple weeks after I go back I get 14 days of vac & a pay raise:haha:


    I had just about given up on getting called back and it happened! Man I'm stoked. The only bad thing is the profit sharing they have been talking about on the news (Based on them coming out of bankruptcy as scheduled and then truing a profit) is tied to your 2006 salary so I won't get any of that. But that's life, I'm just glad to be back. Hopefully things haven't changed too much.

    It's good to hear you got the job back that you really like doing. I think happiness with one's job is very important.

    my sugar momma

    My day just got even better.:cool1: Because I was traveling so much for work my wife was working at a satellite office her company has near our house 3 days a week and at the main office 2 days. She mentioned something about me going back to Delta to her boss and he said "So now you can work at the main office full-time, right?" We she wasn't sure until he offered he a 10% raise:eek1: a couple days a month of working from home:woot: :pimp:
