    Because when we get to go to the mass bar fights like tonight or play dogpile like last night; we're assisting one of the local PD's.

    Our boredom is broken and we get to go home at the end of the night without a pile of paperwork to do.

    :D :D :D

    Uhm.... I love my job because I don't have a schedule, am on call all the time, get free meals, and it's pretty easy. Plus they allow me to be crazy.

    i'm a factory service technician for Monaco Coach, and i work on Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Beaver, Safari, and Royale Coach Class A motorhomes. had some issues with a sidewall vendor, and the fiberglass cracking when exposed to direct sunlight with dark paint applied, so they're paying for every unit to be torn down, a new wall put on, and repainted. probably right around $100,000 per unit.

    Sounds like you'll be employed for a long, long time.

    1500 units, and we're averaging 2 a week... i dont know what the Oregon and Fla facilities are doing, but i know despite having less techs, we kick their asses in taillights out the door every month.

    Mine is real exciting, I do the same thing all day long and every day. I work in a sand pit and screen sand for commericial concrete all day. I"m confined to a loader cab. Yet I'm 4x4'in all day long and get to pull out dump trucks buired in the sand.... test my mentally sanity... wait insanity....:confused:
