    I'm starting to hear that question again here in my part of the world where the recession has finally hit (Feb).
    Funny how a couple years ago the same people would have a smirk on their face when they saw me workin' hard, those people just want the pay--not the job! That's OK, cause I was a member of the 7/70 club then and am now a member of the 7/75 club now---that's 7 weeks paid vakay and 75 grand a year. If you aren't there yet keep goin' keep doin' :wink2:.

    Hope this doesn't sound arrogant, but there are some out there that think they can get a ups driving job next week when they need it. To those fellow ups'ers who are laid off---I was there at one time also. Thoughts and prayers go out to those who are laid off.

    My brother was :censored2: because he couldn't get a straight shot into package driving. He still thinks it's a stupid idea, hiring bottom up

    Now he's a home restoration technician :funny:

    We all saw the incorrect spelling but we all knew that it did not take away from the thread. Judging from the rest of your post I can see that you will be a great addition to BC and I look forward to more of your input.

    Sorry guys, I wondered if that was the correct spelling. To be honest, spelling errors bug me also, I guess I shoulda asked my school teacher wife how to spell it or spell check.

    Haha. No. But he does do painting in what little spare time he has.

    He cleans up water damaged homes and fire damage--that kind of stuff. And most nights he's on call, so he sometimes works 24 hours...

    Ever hear of spell check? I use it all the time, and I still get it wrong every now and then.
