    The thinly veiled jabs at other posters need to stop, folks. If you have a problem with another poster, either put them on ignore or keep it to yourself. General Discussion is supposed to be drama-free. Let's keep it that way.

    Wow! I'm impressed I don't know if I could have been quite so giving.
    You're a fine man, JohnnyK.

    I didn't realize you were waiting in line all night for Kelly Clarkson concert tickets.

    If you mentioned it elsewhere ... I missed it.

    Sounds like getting the tickets made your day , and you kindly made someone else's day!

    Things like that come back to you. Remember that when someone does something kind like that for you. It will happen ... trust me.

    Hope you get the offer. It's always nice to have options. And, often, making a change like that can be energizing.

    That was very kind and generous of you.

    Pikachu, that's great news about your job prospect. In NC, having a state job is great in many ways. One is that after 5 years, I think, you get free health insurance for life. There may some changes to that with Obama Care, I'm not sure, but it doesn't hurt. Plus, state retirement and then you get first dibbs on other state jobs before they are offered to the public. Good luck.
