I am thinking out loud here,

If it is so hard finding an driving job here, why do I keep on getting offers?
I haven't dropped off a resume in years.

Plus I have never had an issue finding a place to live.

On a side note,
If I was to try moving to Revelstoke I may have problems ( I love the place, so I was curious and looked for both rentals and jobs )
However that is why I did my research.

Personally I quite like Vernon (although I actually live in Armstrong, Vernon is close enough that I do a lot of my shopping and socializing there). Calgary's not a bad place, but I find the traffic a bit of a "zoo". Mind you, I think the same thing about Kelowna - nice place to visit but too much traffic for me to want to actually live there. Vernon is a nice compromise; big enough to have the stores and services that I need, yet small enough to still be friendly and reasonably easy to get around.

This guy sounds as though he has a bit of a "chip" on his shoulder, but if he's happier living in Calgary then that's where he needs to be.

We had someone apply for a job from the email address [email protected], and given the email address alone, it went in the trash.

I just arrived in Calgary in my tour bus during the evening rush hour today.
It probably took me 10 minutes just to get through one traffic light.
Thankfully they have the odd HOV lane making my job easier.

Not to mention arriving in the -20 temperatures.

Slimebucket, no offence but if you honestly like driving in this city you are CRAZY.
I'll take Vernon any day over Calgary.

I will be here over the weekend, and think that I'll let someone else do the driving.
There is even a small chance I'll hop in your cab.
