Working a construction site way before their ready for us. So the whole week has been 12 hour days of mostly waiting on other contractors to finish their side of the project. Some people enjoy sitting around on the clock. It drives me insane. Would rather be productive in my personal life then sit and watch the clock.
Otherwise its been a solid week, got a chance to wander and take some photos and eat some good food last night.
Yean i it is man. I'm doing finish carpentry in a few different brands of car dealerships. I'm a little out of my depth but that means i have room to learn which is something I crave out of work. I was a bit frustrated when I made that post and feel better as the week has progressed. I. may have exaggerated my carpentry experience to get the job and was worried about it coming back to bite me haha.
Thanks for asking amigo
Bit of a rough week. Started a new job. Ive worked 39 hours in 3 days with 2-3 days left on the job. The guy whose supposed to be training me keeps giving vauge explanations and then fucking off somewhere and its just a frustrating first week on the job.
Wonder what the total cost ended up being. Guesstimating an average of 25/hr for labor put it at 5 mil just for labor. I imagine that is underestimating it. Then add on all the one off parts that had to be made. One hell of a passion project. I live near Wright Patt AFB and they have one of the largest Air shows in America iirc. Hopefully this makes an appearance.
That qoute is what stuck out to me as well. What a shame to have someone in your party hold an opinion different than the majority.
It just might be the crickets, if you ignore all the symptoms of illness
Yeah im leaning towards electric. Gonna take forever to start working let alone get an apprenticeship. I wonder if it was like that in the past or not. Gonna take an 8 week welding course regardless of everything in march just because i want to learn it for personal hobbies.
Theres wireman or datacom for the apprenticeship. The journmanyman pay is about 15 grand less for telecom but im wondering if i can learn it still in the future.
Waiting to meet my uncle at the local electricians union. He says he can "get me in" I'm skeptical but would he excited to learn the trade. I was caught between this and pipefitters because I enjoy welding. The electrician field seems to have more specialization involved and a higher average pay so i guess ill have to learn to weld on my own time. Also the option to go back to school for electrical engineering or something on the side. The whole thing is intimidating but having a career to work on sounds better then working low skill dead end jobs. Talked to people whod been on the job ten years at my old one. Still 100% travel and basically just raises to keep with inflation. Yuck.
Shared this article with a friend and they sent me one back I found interesting but not entirely related.
