True that on the bouncer idea. I may be light, but I can hold my own.
Hmmm, man-whore.... Nah, I'd hate to take all you guys' girls, the homies gotta get some too ya know.
So far, the UPS idea (even though I know my back would absolutely hate it) seems like it could work. Depends on how flexible they are on time. I really don't want to work all night, and then head off to my day job straight from there. I'll look on their website and see what's open.
The Autozone idea isn't bad either. There just happens to be a 24 hour one near me in OFallon. Couldn't hurt.
Bartending wouldn't work most likely. I can't remember my own cell phone # half the time, let alone all the mixed drinks. Everyone gets BEER! Nothing else!!
I have considered leaving my job in search of greener pastures, and in my area of work, it's slim pickins. Telecommunications is a fickle area of technology. One day, everything is booming, and the next, in the tank. I have been w/ Avaya (formerly Lucent, formerly AT&T) for over 5 years now working at a Business Partner. I started in the warehouse as a grunt, and now they have brought me up as tech support, and pay for all of my training. The classes for my certifications are expensive. Some are around $1,000 each. They've invested over $10,000 in me in '04 alone, and I'm still taking the IP Office, S8700 Media Server, and Modular Messaging classes. If I can hold out, I'm gonna sqeeze the boss and see what kind of $$ falls my way. They know I'm worth it, but techs are expensive. My boss just told me today before I left, that once I get my Nortel Norstar cert. at the end of this month, that he's gonna run a raise for me past the boss and see what he can do. Must of overheard me talking at work about the $ issues and actually cares. What a change. I know some day I'll hit it big if I just keep working for it, but can't live on crackers all my life, ya know?
To top it all off, we just got the wife's diagnosis back, and it seems that she will be going on fertility treatment (the baby thing is part of the reason why I need the extra $). Don't know what that costs a month, but I can't imagine it being cheap. But, if we don't have kids by the time she hits 30~ish, then the chances drop 55-60% that we will never, and we're about to both hit 28. F that. Problem w/ the treatment is that it increases the likelyhood of twins. It also runs in her family, so she could have them regardless. Gonna try and make as much as I can right now, just in case 2 mouths show up eventually, instead of 1. I can suffer, but I will NOT let my child suffer. Keep the ideas coming, so far, the're all great. I knew I could count on you guys (and gals).
