I got laid off a few weeks ago from the military base doing contract maintenance work on mil vehicles &equipment. I filed for unenjoyment and was thinkin of a little ride thru the countryside on the scooter..I updated my Resume and was called in for an interview tuesday, I start Monday with a truck & trailer repair shop. I`m not complaining tho. I just didn`t expect to find anything this quickly

Congrats on the job! I believe that people who really want to work have no problem getting a job. It might not be what you want, but it will put beans on the table! lol

Maybe they need someone mature and capable! Hard to find that in today's younger sect :( The "Me 1st" mentality coupled with a faulty educational system and lack of parental guidance/involvement dictates in their minds that they don't have to do much to get by in life. Sad...

Hope you get your toolboxes and tools loaded and to the new shop without breaking a nail! Congrats on becoming gainfully employed once again. Decent jobs are tough to come by. PS-I thanks again for the gift of brass :D

Congratulations on the new job oldbrass. Hope everything works out good for you. I've been looking for a part time job around here. But I think they don't want to hire a person of my age, even had one to tell me that. So much for equal opportunity employer. All I can say is, their loss.

How's it going with the new job?
So far so good, worked on some tailers and put new engine mounts in a freightliner..They asked today if I was interested in working the road in one of the service trucks

Good on ya! If you take the Service Truck...be careful out on the roadways. So many distracted drivers make things riskier than days gone by!
