Update time I guess. Last October, I'd decided that actual work was causing me to not like working. I transfered into the Quality Control department at the same company. Fear not, I am really good at keeping quality from running rampant.

Since they haven't tossed me out after a 2 month trial period, I guess I get to keep the job. Now I go home every night with a headache instead of a back ache. Better to be an inspector than a supervisor though. Part problems are easy to fix compared to people problems.
Yep. I've never had a part argue with me.

Started out in a big woodshop outta high school, did falling for a timber outfit, then started building custom homes and log cabins, full circle back to having my own woodshop.

When someone inquires as to my chosen vocation I usually reply "Hundred Dolla Bill Chaser" or "Glorified Wood Butcher"

North of the Coonazz line but still in Louis
Since this I was furloughed from the railroad for almost two years. Got called back in March, but the work sucks and I had to take a $5 an hour pay cut, so today is actually my last day Headed out on my own subcontracting Plumbing and excavation.

Good luck Justin, there are 4 important things for a plumber to remember

1) Hot water is on the left-hold both hands up, stick your thumbs out, and the hand that forms an L is on your left
2) Shit and everything else runs downhill
3) Payday is on Friday
4) DON'T BITE YOUR FINGERNAILS!!!!!!!!!!!
