My Mom Called Me Yesterday
to see when I was coming home for a visit and to ask how the job was going and when I thought I'd be through. When I started here, I really thought I'd be here for 4 to 6 months, get their files in order, clean up the backlog and move on to the next job. I figured I'd get a good reference and perhaps be able to do the same time of work for another company. When Mom asked me when I thought the job would be over, I started laughing. While I'm holding my own, I could very easily fall behind. My new estimate of when this job could be finished is sometime in the year 2008. Maybe not even then. Looks like if I want it, I've got myself a job. I really do enjoy it. Guess I'll stay.
Yesterday after I posted I emailed my boss with much the same thing I said here. He emailed me back and said yes I would get an excellent reference but only if I ever finished the job and considering the girl's feelings about filing he thought this could go on indefinitely at least in a limited capacity. He said let's wait and see what the future brings. What a nice guy.
