The Results Are In....

It's been an interesting morning.

I didn't pass the test. I got 73, and needed 80. I have rather mixed feelings about it. I wasn't impressed with the training process and felt like I wasn't given information I needed to perform the job. At the same time, I need a job.

But life goes on.

The other fun thing is that I managed to leave my lights on when I went in to work, and didn't hear the warning bell. Not sure why, but I'm guessing it's due to being worried about my results. So my battery was dead when I went out to go home.

After calling my sister, who was going to travel to my location and give me a jump-start, I let the engine sit for about 25 minutes and tried again, and it started up. I figure it built up enough of a charge to fire up. I don't know how.

My current favorite theory is that the power lines I parked under charged the battery. You know those huge power lines crossing Arizona? The ones I parked under aren't quite that big, but fairly close, and I could hear them crackling every morning. I don't know how likely this theory is, but I like it.

And, anyway, my car started up, then got a nice charge in the 40 minute drive home.

Today I'm filling out applications for Barnes and Noble, Toys R Us, and Best Buy.

Wish me luck!
