And again...

After making my entry, another rep from Delta called, asking if I could fly to Atlanta on Friday.

I'm not thinking that's giving me enough time to really mull this whole thing over, as it will change everything in my life. Plus, I have to take three German tests (she wasn't sure if it was high or low dutch). Greaaaaaaaa t.

They contacted me a month ago, then boom...suddenly they're all over me. It's weird and scary. I just found out from Z that they JUST got out of bankruptcy. I'm thinking those planes need a whole lotta TLC and maintenance, and it could be some kind of death trap for me.

Yikes.

i logged over 75K miles this year on Delta jets...they're no more dangerous than any other airline. And the run from ATL to Schipol isn't bad at all...

My trips back and forth to Germany typically took me a WEEK to recover from. And that was when I was a kidlette. lol :) I just don't think it's the smartest decision. Besides -- I look awful in blue :>

Yep -- I have to read, write and then converse with someone who's dutch. Yay. lol :)

I think it's too sudden, also. I'm almost shying away from it. Can you see me in blue polyester with a hat on? lol :) Wearing a little red tie??? I'm not thinking.

i think you'd be all cute and adorable as the dickens. you in a uniform, though? dunno, might could see you getting a bit of a power trip going. ordering people around, smacking them upside the head, forcing their heads into the terlet with that blue water, i'm just saying

Awwww, thanks! Blue really isn't my color. LOL :) I've rethought that whole thing. As long as my spawnlette is in school, I'm staying here.

Can you postpone it? If so, will that hurt your chances of getting IF you decide to do with it? It does sound like you need more time to consider this. This reminds me of the kind of pressure tactics that salesmen use to sell you something. They say, "If you don't buy it now, you'll lose your chance! Oh, in fact I just got a call today inquiring about it!"

Of course when it comes to jobs, they probably DO have someone else looking at it. If you're uncomfortable with the time frame, ask to postpone. If you can't, I'm sure another similar opportunity will come along when you're ready to take that step.

She used the word "desperate" when talking about someone with my capabilities. So I think they'll do it on /my/ timeframe. Plus, I'll need a little time to bone up on my Dutch. She didn't know whether it was high, low or what. DETAILS PLZ.

My grandfather retired from Delta (Western, actually, but Delta bought them). He always swore by them.

As a child, we always flew Delta. But they are just coming out of bankruptcy. Yikes.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
