Looking back at 2013. I did some funny and bad shit. I'll tell y'all one story. Gather round. Get comfy. So I do construction for a living. And we were on a job. And one of my guys showed up late to work. I tolerate it if there's a good excuse behind it. And they make they're time up after work after the 2nd one each month. But he showed up late. I let it slide till lunch. So I was grilling off the back of the truck. He walked over and look at the food. I ask him why he was late. He said his alarm didn't go off. I just let it slide. It was his 3rd time being late that month. I told him he doesn't have to make up his time. He said sorry and said thanks. Later on in the day. On our break time. 3:30. I figured I'll teach him a lesson. He went to the shitter. > I told the rest of the crew to gather round the shitter. I got in my truck. And drove next to the boys. I had one guide me close to the shitter then laid on the horn. Just to scare him. He yelled "f*** you ya shit head" he tried opening the door. it wouldn't open it hit my bumper. So I put the truck in drive. And started to push it he started screaming like a girl! Lol I pushed it until it tipped over. Into the hole dug behind it!!> went and parked my truck and watched him crawl out of the shitter

I needed to return the work truck anyhow so it worked out nice. I don't know how many square feet it is, but even with all the workbenches and clutter in there you can comfortably park about half a dozen full size pickups in there.
I'd love have a shop like that. I dream about things like that

Again sadly... My parents are making me... Either for something in construction, agriculture, landscaping, or wildlife management. I probably will have my own farm some day

For construction I would probably go to bgsu for a project manager. That's where and what my brother went for and he got a job before he even graduated

Ahh, I know how that goes, I want to have my own detailing company (I kinda did before). But my parents aren't exactly supporting my dreams.

I want my own landscaping company but my parents are always telling me how there's no money in it but I say as long as I'm making decent money and I enjoy what I do why not? And I work for my family friends company but I work on the side with my "own little company"

that's awesome. It's more then just mowing yards isn't it? And I bet the ranger looks good hailing a trailer all the landscaping equipment on it

Everyone tells me to cuz there is natural gas drilling everywhere around me and they need engineers to go and work in the field and not in the office which sounds amazing cuz all you do is go hiking and drive around
