    That's really cool. Do you have to travel a lot for that job or is there enough local work to keep you busy?

    Jolly, jolly, jolly. Lost my job night before last. Long story short, my boss's wife hates my family (She thinks he "did things" with my little sister.) and said she would take the kids if he didn't sever ties with all of us, so I'm out of a job. I don't blame my boss though, because his wife's got the connections to make sure he never sees his kids again, and I know how important his kids are to him.
    So I'm looking for a new job. Still got my newspaper route and scrap metal, but that's not enough. Thinking about joining the service. I'm going to talk to a Coast Guard recruiter soon.

    Wow sad to hear that dude! Keep your head up..... Coast Guard is a great career! I have a friend in San Diego that's been with them for years.

    It sucks, but I'll get through it. I have to, you know? I'm just worried about during the time being, how is my family going to cope? My meager income was what paid most of the bills- Mom's sick, so she can't work, and my dad is already worked to the bone with his two jobs. Might end up losing power and internet and all of that, again. We've gone three months without power before, so it's not like it would be new. But if I disappear off the internet for a while, y'all know why.
    I know someone in the CG as well, and he loves it. He's actually stationed at Scott AFB in Illinois. That would probably be the hardest thing for me, is being so far from my family. But it's looking like all I've got- I don't have the money for school, and I'm not great shakes at any trades, so the military looks like the best option.

    Much thanks, man. Come to think of it, all the Coasties I know love their jobs, too. I have a meeting with the local CG recruiter on Wednesday, so we'll see how that goes.

    I work for a company called Victory Steel. I am in charge of the entire shipping and receiving of all of the steel, the trucking schedule, optimizing the cuts of the steel so there is not much scrap or remenants. Then I decide who in the shop gets the steel to cut. It is a very high paced/ controlled stress job. I am currently in charge of about 4 million ton of steel.
