Finally, 9 months after starting, I am no longer just a lowly temp and am now a full-fledged employee of Symantec with all the perks and benefits like:
Health insurance! Yay! Especially when I need my major issues dealt with like morbid obesity, chronic alcoholism, gout, disconnected shoulder, general arthritis, precursor diabetes, gum disease and gingivitis, escalating myopia, resurgent occasional GURD , social anxiety disorder, depression, tooth decay, sexual performance anxiety and unsustainable erections, lethargy, possible schizophrenia, male-pattern baldness, high blood pressure, occasional insomnia, chronic pollen allergies, and lactose intolerance.
Also, PTO! (Paid Time Off) Yay! I can take time off with pay for the many doctor office visits I'll need.
But seriously folks (a bit ironic since I wasn't actually joking), it is very much a status "thing" here. Only a few temps become perm.
After all, it takes the creme-de-la-creme to be able to serve our customers best...or does it?
More on this after a special "Koyaanisqatsi" timeline post which will chronicle the momentous past 5 years. Yes, Mildred, we are almost there!

The Day That It All Stems From:
The Beginning Of Koyaanisqatsi, Phase 1.
The date that will live (for me) in infamy.
Please stay tuned....
