Bill talked with Bernie (he runs the whole outfit here in Colby) and he said that Murfin wouldn’t stand in his way of collecting unemployment. He also gave him the numbers for about three of their rigs that operate somewhat close to Colby. So he’ll be calling them to see if they have any openings. Sometimes when you’re let go from the company they won’t hire you back in any capacity. That isn’t Bill’s case, thankfully. Best case scenario would be one of the rigs needing help on one of the towers. It would be nice if he could stay with Murfin, he’s been with them close to thirteen (?) years. I know how he was let go was wrong, but it was only Brian’s doing. And it does always seem that the oilfield is a law unto themselves. Although I’ve never quite figured that out.
I keep telling myself that everything happens for a reason. I guess we’ll know the reason later.
