I received a random phone call today which ended up being a job offer from another hospital in town. It's actually a job that I had wanted before this one. I apologized that I was happy where I was and was pleased to share that their offer did not match what I was currently making. And I know for a fact that the benefits where I am now are better than theirs.
This is probably a good thing. If they had counter-offered more money I would have had to seriously consider it.
This makes the seventh job offer I have personally received this year. I am floored every time it happens.
I sent a text message to The Hater after I was off the phone. He replied this means I was "a blue chip nurse." I thought was a poker analogy, but he assures me it is a basketball analogy instead. Had it been a football analogy, no explaination would have been necessary.
The dead zone is fast approaching. The Hater never thought he would be rooting for Utah.
I'm ready for football time in Tennessee. There will be much orange in my office.
