As bad as you want this job, they will be the fortunate ones to have hired you. There's something about you that resonates. Show them how its done right.

Several of the kids around here worked on the barges years ago and all liked it. They really enjoyed being on 30 and off 30. They worked for Ingram I think. Be sure to try and work for one that goes through Locks on the river as they said it paid different; The last one who works for them went and got his license to fuel the ships coming into New Orleans and likes it MUCH better than riding the barges up the rivers. Something to consider there.


Old enough to know better, but dumb enough to still try.

Wolfe..
Your foot is still in the door. Id call back the people you met with, tell them what happened, ask them if there is another function you can do for their company. Shows more get up and go.
If they have another option great, if not Id bet they know someone else in the industry who is looking for a good worker. They may turn out to be your best bird dog.
I wish you luck
