kryptonic saidhey funk, how is your band goin??
we havent practiced since moving into the new space.
the drummer and bass player are wanting to play covers and the singer is wanting to do weird beatles acid induced music where we all wear uniforms on stage.
as for Tyler. It's run by the church of green acres on 110. They pulled rob zombie's halloween from the movie theater. Not so many out boys around, and craigslist is dead too. (not that I was looking)
training's in Tyler because that's where ETMC (east texas medical center) is based. they've got a couple hospitals out here and EMS service all over East Texas. It just so happened that when the company who had Pasadena's EMS contract was up for renewal; ETMC had the better bid and got the contract.
that pay is shit; but the overtime is AMAZING. plus I'm getting mileage for coming up here and going home. and seeing as they aren't paying for a hotel over the weekend; the two round trips averaging about 880 miles total are getting me 58.4 cents per mile; about $500. (with an estimated 150 going into my tank.
Also getting a $2,000 sign on bonus and a stiphon on my salary for having extra certifications. Bringing my hourly rate for a 24hr shift to a whopping $7.99 an hour; but that's 911 for you. (also, I've got no experience)
So if I ever save your life, or you see me on the street and feel like cutting me off or doing some other dumbassed thing; Please don't. I don't get paid enough for all your tomfoolery. Especially you; old Lady who has evidently been around since before ambulances and just stops dead in highway traffic instead of pulling to the right.
