I took the plunge and am now flying my jet job as a full-timer and not as a contractor anymore. Good news, I get paid when I don't work. Bad news, they don't like it when you don't work.
I was really hoping that I would not have to work on my first day, but I got the call and had to fly to New Mexico. Left at 7am, back by 1pm. I guess I cannot really complain about having to fly a jet on my first day!
Jen knew of my struggle to accept becoming a lowly employee rather then being the boss and decorated the house appropriately for my return - black balloons, black streamers and a sympathy card which read "Much sympathy...thinking of you during this difficult time."
I have the coolest wife ever! (no offense to you other wives out there.)
