I work at a lumber mill over the summers to pay for university, and every year I find myself pleased by how respectful my coworkers are. I always expect them to treat me like a kid since they’ve been working here for decades and see people my age come and go every year, but they always treat me like just another one of the guys. It’s nice.
@Fuggles, If you can pick up wood and shove it into machine, you are Comrade.
@Fuggles, I'm 20, and my older brother got me a job as a laborer in a contracting company and we work in the hospitals in Boston. It's the best construction job I've ever had because it's an absolute boys club of young 20 something year olds who just want to work tons of hours and make money to blow on stupid shjt with our fat contracting paychecks
@Fuggles, I did that too to pay for school. Keep the gloves once they wear out in the fingers and tack them over your bed. When you feel like skipping class, look at the gloves and ask yourself if you’d rather work at the mill instead.
@big freedom, big facts. I worked out in the fields picking and harvesting vegetables until from 14-16 until I got myself a job at an Ag company where I worked for 5 years while going to school. My family wasn’t even struggling I just really wanted to work from a young age. Whenever school starts to suck I think “I know what the struggle is. I don’t wanna wake up at 5am and head to the fields like so many others” and I’m putting myself through college. I feel like an accomplished semi-adult.
If your relationship with your boss is that bad, just change jobs bro
@FullMetalAlcoholist, Or bring it up to HR, bosses aren't immune to corporate.
@FullMetalAlcoholist, sometimes it's more complicated to fix by just "switching jobs"; I was stuck at a Coke plant for a year did my damndest to leave throwing my resume everywhere. As soon as I got an other elsewhere, I totally said see ya to that dump
@FullMetalAlcoholist, "just change jobs".
Let me just strap on my job helmet and squeeze down into a job cannon and fire off into job land, where jobs grow on jobbies
@Not him again, wow someone's mad. It's not hard to find a job nowadays, as long as you are willing to work.
@FullMetalAlcoholist, depends on what you do for a living
Ahh sounds great. Unfortunately I'm in a contract of which I gotta wait about 4 years to not have to do this anymore, so in the meantime hello therapy!
@FullMetalAlcoholist, I spent 2 years trying to get a part time job to help pay for living expenses while at college... No, it can be hard to get a job.

U gotta try and find the silver linings in every situation
