Consider it a tax refund from the gumint.

A good reason to get out of bed in the morning is a plus

Exactly. As it is I have to rely on needing to pee.

I never make it to morning for that, but that means I'm available for stepping stone duty more often.

Phone interview for a new job today; if I got it, would require a move to Delaware and maybe a weird shift, but... a 33% raise.

Career will kinda be all the way back, if it happens.

Does the 33% raise account for cost of living? My impression is Delaware is an expensive place, but I could be wrong.

In this case DE is just a little cheaper - rent is about the same (pretty high imo, it counts as the phila region) but gas is cheaper, and there's no sales tax.

Property and school taxes are about 1/3 of PA in DE.

Good luck Toad!!!

Phone interview over.

I have no way of knowing whether I did great or terrible.

I have no way of knowing whether the company is worth being great for.

I love phone interviews but hate the technical quiz time portion. Real world knowledge doesn't match the book lernin' style of quiz questions they ask in these situations. I feel bad for them, because there are so few ways to figure out if someone knows what they're doing, before you actually ask them to do it. All I know is this doesn't show me off at my best. I seemed to get enough of them to seem worthwhile. You never know.

And as I typed that I had a feeling of deja vu, like I said the exact same thing 2 or 4 years ago. I bet I did.

Delaware has a 2.2% to 6.6% income tax instead of a sales tax.

Geez the waiting. They were supposed to get right back with the recruiter and the recruiter would have gotten right back to me...
