Well not really new, but back with the company I used to do temp tech support work for. I'm not exactly a permanent tech right now but they should have it finalized in the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, everything went fine until I went to the restroom and felt that my bag was wet. When I checked the bag had ripped right where it attaches to the round plastic thing. Surprisingly, I didn't get anything on my skin or clothes and it didn't smell either.

Thank goodness I took my travel bag with me.

I'm either going to have the takedown sometime in November/December or I'm going to wait until tax season is over and do the takedown in April.
They are doing the background check and that will take 10 days so after October 8th I'll be permanent.
