4months in..

Ok, so I dont think I've worked at the shop for a full four months, but its close enough.

This is what I've gathered, my boss isnt really holding up his end of the deal. So I am to the point of not really caring, just doing the work and going home. No more than I got to. The thing is, I am more so doing any work that I have the ability to do than I am working on transmissions. In the last 2 weeks, the most time I've had with transmissions is tearing down a 4L60 out a 1500 Chevy and putting a tranny back in another 1500 Chevy.

The good news is, I've discovered this work isnt for me, for the first time it actually feels like a job. I am not happy with it all, especially when I found out my boss wasnt holding up his end of the deal and wasnt willing to work with me on some other circumstances when it comes to doing what I really want..

But I've come to the conclusion, I got no choice but to stay where I am until I graduate and keep working at the shop until I either find some work or get a job with a company doing excavation..

But until then I am working with my old boss when I can. He told me he'd give me some work this summer if I had time to get it done(things are different now that I can drive) But I been working with him on his jobs when he has them and then taking care of his farm too.. The bad news is, I've had no work outside of his farm, but I havent been advertising or anything, but that cause I am pretty much at a deadend, I dont know what to do...

Just figured I'd give yall an update sense I aint been around alot lately.

You can cross it off the list and try something else in the future.

So doing some advertising and getting some work doing what you wanna be doing is not an option at this point?

Its an option, but I've tried advertising and had no luck. Hints the at a dead-end thing.

Stu- I know what I am going to do in the future, the thing I know I love to do..

We know what your future career is ie male escort service the young stut with lots of stamina

Myself I knew you wouldn't like being a transmission rebuilder. I guess keep working there till you finish highschool which is how many years ? or is this your graduating year.

You always could be working at Mc Donalds and serving big fat girls ordering a big mac and poutine with a diet coke.

Don't wait too long like I did and don't "settle" when you can do more.
If you love machinery, maybe a sales position. Use real world experience to set you apart from the paper pushers and make some contacts in the biz and get something going on the side with your old man helping you. Good luck amigo. Oh, and stop your whining.
thats why I called it a job. I love running equipment and thats no doubt what I wanna do.

I am trying to make contacts with people. Once I finish this job I'll start looking for a job in the excavation field.

Thats the way I look at it. Like I said, I been spending more time doing whatever needs done than working on transmissions.

I dont graduate until 2012.

What Yellow dog said is very true.

It's good that you are trying to figure this stuff out now, while your young. Lots of guys dont figure it out till they are halfway to retirement. You seem to have your head on strait, and you seem to be a hard worker, you will come out no problem in whatever you do.

Okay, that's just plain disturbing coming from an old guy talking about a teenager...
