    I was just told that I'm first in line to replace a guy that just quit at the shop where I take all my vehicles. The owner asked me last week if I had a job, and told me she was going to ask me to work there. This is awesome... I get to work closer to home AND work in a shop. I'll be taking a pay cut, but at this point, I don't care... I miss being able to come home and play with my son for a few hours before he has to go to bed, and this will allow me to do just that. =)

    Having time to spend with your kids is well worth a pay cut. Ask me how I know... Congrats.

    The guy that left was an "Office Assistant" but he didn't ever get proper training. If I get the job, I'll basically be handling all the office paperwork and I'd go to school to learn to be a mechanic. I have no experience in that respect, so the opportunity for me to learn is awesome. I'm pretty much over qualified for the job that I'll be doing, so maybe eventually, I'll end up being part of the management team too...

    sitting at a desk taking calls from pissed off customers because their machines are broken... working from 10-7, never see my kid, hardly see my wife, make $11.00 an hour, and am generally unhappy with the way things are turning out. I don't mind the work itself... but the context of the work is killing me. Plus I'm getting fat.
