Exactly Jr. you will have something to fall back on and you have a job now. I wish I had a job now but what I am struggling with is one getting anyone to call me back and two not wanting to get something at a grocery till I graduate in May and then get into another job that I really wanna do. I would feel bad working somewhere for two months and then just cutting out on them. My point is you have a job and that is a good thing, stay the course in it.

Good Luck!

Exactly.. I didnt mean for this to be a whining and bitc#ing post. I just figured I'd tell yall what was up.. some people actually care about what others do..

I mean I did go into this thinking I'd really enjoy it.. Now 4months in, I've realized I dont.. thats all i wanted to say..

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.

and thank you,

read the first quote and remember this, There is NO second chance to make a first impression.....now read the rest of what you said and think about what i said.....this is a time that some of us have seen before, there will be guys lined up for that job and any other job before long....take it from me, take pride in anything you do, no matter what it is and you'll make it through life..

have a great birthday, you're only young once

jim

Ok, so maybe I said it wrong in that first quote, I still take pride in my work.. Its a great feeling to drive a car out of the shop that I tore a tranny out of, rebuilt and then put back in. Why wouldnt I take pride in something like that?

But I understand what you are saying..
