Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
On Monday, the 11th, I received a letter from TSA, Transportation Security Administration, saying that it was determined that I was no threat to security.
On Tuesday morning another company called me wanting an interview. The hours and pay are the same as the other job, BUT!!! It's a Monday -- Friday position. I accepted it happily and signed the paper for (another) background check and also went and took a drug test.
On Thursday my new license arrived in the mail with the TX endorsement.
Surprise. Surprise. Surprise.
