  1. I'm a bit sick of my life as a Refreshent Distribution Clerk at th theater, so I am looking fo a better opportunity. I'm looking for a job that pays more than minumum wage, but doesn't require any additional schooling or training that I would have to do on my own. I've heard wholesale places such as Costco are good places to work, and I've heard bad things about grocery stores. Anyone else know of anything? I'm 18 btw.

    "Hello Sean, this is Sgt. Jones, just wondering if had come to a decision about the Air Force"
    "You just called me like 2 minutes ago"
    "I just thought I'd check up on you, remeber, the US Air Force will eventually own your soul."
    "Thats what the Sgt. Lee from the Army just said!"

    Hang on, I hear someone else calling...

    "Sean, clean-up, aisle 4..."

    Resistance is futile.

    I have heard that waiters make very good money, but also that it's a really tough job.

    If you are looking for a career, then the Military can be a good choice. Don't forget that 95% of the people you will serve with will whine all the way through their enlistment. So make sure it's what you want, do your homework on it, and don't be one of the dudes who got surprised.

    Also, if you have the support of your folks, maybe you should think of going to college? (Unless you already are of course!!) You could take courses that would lead you to a good career, but as your electives, take music courses. Then you may be able to develop in two directions. If you choose a good career, and the music thing doesn't pan out, or maybe just doesn't work out fast enough, you have something to fall back on.

    Good luck bud!
  19. Ohh yeah, I just started my first semester at college. Not sure what I'm majoring in yet, so I'm just getting some basics out of the way.

    dude, i work at a trucking company right now, loading and unloading boxes. The hours are wonderful for me since I dont go to highschool football games and I dont gig on weekends. I work friday nights and saturday mornings at ten bucks an hour. So I go in around 8 o'oclock on friday evening and work through the night until they make me leave saturday morning. Sp i can easily make 100 - 130 in a nights work. And i'm sixteen. Then that leaves all of saturday afternoon and the rest of the week for me to hang out w/ my friends or what not.
