Job op in Salem OR

Recommended Posts

Moderator, please delete duplicate post in Off Topic forum. I posted here too because I can't wait for delayed posting in Off Topic (no disrespect, job offer requires timely submission.)

 

Hello All,

I have a remote opportunity for a job transfer to Salem.

I like the 100-degree desert a little more than the 20-degree mountain, unless I'm skiing.

 

Aside from the pure beauty and being able to join the Hatch Patrol :drunk: - what am I in for? the good? the bad?

 

thanks in advance, PK.

Well, for one thing you'll have some ham-handed highschool dropout scratching your fender and pouring excess gas all over the side of your pristine Subaru.

 

"Fueling technician."

:lol: When I was up for Hood River, and needed to fill up, I unknowingly got out, swiped card, and began fueling - at least 1/3 full before technician came running out to stop me..... now if he'd only do my windows...

Most of the dumb rump roast Oregonians are former smart-rump roast Californians.

 

Salem is nice, 80-90 in the summer, and typically not much colder than 40 in the winter except for maybe a few weeks.

Hmmm, does the word emissions regulations mean anything significant to you? If so, get out of Cali. I've never owned a car that I kept a full exhaust in, but that's in Montana.

Lots of Subarus.

Closer to WCSS.

No sales tax

Easier smog standards (if any... I think you have em in salem)

Cooler weather (its not THAT cold... my baja said it only got down to like 37 this morning I think.

You can actually commute without using the freeway if you want to.

Cheaper gas AND a high school educated kid (if that) pumps it for you. (Just make sure to hop out and make sure they clicked the cap on tight.)

Job opportunity

Portland is better than Salem :brow: (more u - pull - its up here in portland)

Cooler weather (if you dont like it)

The morons at the gas station rarely seem to tighten my gas cap enough.

 

Hmmm more pro's... better move up here :drunk:

"... whadayamena I didn't qualify?"

*(&^%$#@#!

 

That's okay - Oregon only has six-character license plate anyway - OZIFIED won't fit.

I haven't looked WA because I'd have to work a deal or buy Zap's Imp. :grin:

For now, I'll remain a smart dumb rump roast :cool:
