Woo hoo!!!

I've been driving for a contractor that contracts for FedEx for the last 15 months, pay was a little low and benefits sucked but it was the only 8 hour a [s]day[/s]night job I could find and I'm sick of 12 to 16 hour days.
About 7 months ago my contractor told me he was thinking of pulling his truck, I do a short run and he wasn't making enough money so I've been pretty nervous wondering how long I was gonna have a job. I've been pestering FedEx to put me on as a company driver, they all like me and I've got a spotless record but they save buttloads of money using contractors.
Today I found out they went for it, I'll be getting a 12 cent per mile increase and full bennies for the family
Woo Hoo, it's party time!!!!!!

Cool, I get a brandy new Volvo, not my favorite make but much better than the old Internasty I'm driving now. Only downside is I have to share it with a P&D driver, nasty creatures but they can be house broken with a little effort.

Thanks folks, I'm a happy (although very wet) camper today.

That's great news. What was the end result with the hard top?

Still no end result, the finance company is insisting on me sending the check to them and I tell them to get bent.
I don't owe much on the Jeep so we're probably going to just pay it off.
