    ...kinda.

    I got a job at a boatyard in Wilmington (about an hour from my parents' house) and I start tomorrow. So, I'm staying at their condo for a week or two until I can get my own house with a couple of my friends. So I don't live with my parents anymore (but I'm still living at their place). Hopefully that'll change real soon.

    Anyway....





    ...pad.

    So I applied at this boat yard to work in the yard crew. You know, moving boats around with the Travelift, washing them, running the docks, driving the tractor, going on parts runs, etc.

    Apparently I got put in the paint and 'glass dept, and my job is to prep and do bottom paint. I spent 6 hours today sanding the bottom of a 61' sportfish boat with a 12" orbital sander in a spacesuit and a full face respirator. Do you know how heavy that damn sander is after 6 hours?!

    Meanwhile, my friend, who I called after I left my interview at this place, got the job that I had applied for. While I was on my back in wet gravel sweating my ass off and covered in blue paint dust, he was out on the work boat, riding around with another guy. For fun. I applied first, showed up for work first, and am just, if not more, qualified for the job.

    Bull****.

    Needless to say, if I don't get out of the paint & glass crew, tomorrow will be my last day.

    ****ing pissed doesn't do this situation justice.
