    It had to happen sooner or later.
    I saw a posting for a job I thought I might like.
    There is a huge blueberry conglom. up here in Sheffield Mills with a large U-Pick set up. They have a classy restaurant called Between the Bushes on the site as well.

    http://www.betweenthebushes.ca/upick.html

    Anyway, they were looking for a bus driver to drive one of a couple nice buses that picks up waiting u-pick folks and ferries them out to their rows in the blueberry fields. These buses run a a regular schedule dropping folks off and picking up those that are done picking their berries.
    I had an interview this Thursday that lasted all of 8 minutes! :???: They asked if I would wear a headset and be OK with talking to folks during the ride. :lol: :rolling: :rotfl:

    The short interview ended with, "We've got more people to talk to so we'll get back to you beginning of next week either way".:roll:
    I got a call yesterday (Friday) saying that I was the successful candidate. It's only for 7 or 8 weeks but it should be fun.
    Now I gotta go home and practice being nice to people!

    P.S. - they also now know I keep honey bees! :wink:
