I got a new job.

In 2 weeks I start a new job. I'll be driving a truck although not a tractor trailer. Start off with 2 weeks vacation and they pay 50% of the medical insurance.

So basically what this comes down to is I'll have more money for whatever bike I'm gonna get come spring time.


I'm gonna see if Autozone will let me still work Sundays until they can get someone hired and trained (which I see no reason they wouldn't let me). And Sheep screw that crap about working 7 days a week. This new job will be 45-50 hours a week. Plus the 4-5 on Sundays at autozone will be plenty.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

well look at this way, I'm almost positive there's no lunch break. you kinda just get lunch on the road. So its still about the same as a normal 40 hour week with 1 hour lunches except I'd be getting paid the whole 9 hours. Just throw in a few hours extra on top of that to get to 50 and no big deal. Basically the time spent tied up at work is still the same.

funny thing is right when he said 2 weeks vacation I thought of Grattan.

I've earned everything I have (just about, my mom paid my last year and a couple of the last payments for junior year of college cause I was gonna drop out). But everything else I've paid for (car, 2 bikes and insurance for all). Granted I don't pay rent though.

Good for you. It'll feel good to actually utilize all that training.

Best of luck.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: I got a new job.

Congrats. Hell, I told my boss i would switch to a different shift if they didn't keep it where I always get 50 hours a week. I have gotten used to the checks and don't want to have to change back to a 40 hour schedule.

Hope it goes well..
