I currently am not interested in my job. I am looking for a new full time place. Any one have any ideas for the houston area? I can send ya'll my resume if ya'll need also. Basically I am going to try to "network" through ya'll so if you have some leads, let me know!

Might want to post what your interested in and what skills ya have. Also how much pay you may be looking for. And what your willing to work, hours, days, etc. Would you be willing to preform manual labor in the sun or a closed in building with no AC and lugging 80 lbs up 3 flights of stairs? What's your previous experience?

That kinda stuff.

Just bite the bullet and apply at Carter's Country or ASC.

You never told me that you got a job. How long have you been working there?
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 5:42:44 AM EDT
Hit up the local airports and flying services. Somebody might need a "gofer" or ramp help. It's in your area of intrest and might be a way to get your foot in the door.

As far as college goes have you looked into TSTI in Waco? I know two guys who got their college education and their flight training there. One is flying for a charter service and the other is flying freight for AA. Something to think about.

Not to hurt your feelings but we don't have a high turn over rate in the clerk dept so I wouldn't hold my breath for that one.

You should mow lawns.
When I was your age, I made $500 a week doing this.
It sucks, but I was done by 12:00 since I started
so early. And for the rest of the day, I hung out
at the pool.

You tell us you worked until NOON, then hung out by the pool.

And then, with a straight face, you tell us you enjoy hard work?

HEY!!!

Mowing lawns for a living IS hard work. It's tough enough doing your own yard when it's 95 degrees and 95% himidity, try going to another when you're done, then another, then another, then another, then another, then another................

Actually, you are pretty close to correct. I have been fishing and hunting alot this summer. I shot a nice sow last week.

I drove across the field at 45-60 mph to get to the pack before they could run into the deep cover. I fired my AR15, one handed, out the driver's side window while driving!

Let me tell y'all. It is real tough to aim, drive and shoot all at the same time.

I tried resting my barrel against the doorfram to steady the shot. That wasa mistake. I have powder burns on my door frame now.

It was exciting, though. I killed a nice 200 pound sow. I think I got a piece of a boar and piglet as well, but I was not able to locate a blood trail in the weeds.

TRG

ps. I spent two hours yesterday in the middle of that same field. I got my truck stuck in two deep ruts. Win some, lose some, I guess. At least I did not hit the ruts when I was doing 60 across that field.

BTW, anyone know the record for airtime in a 2500 GMC?

Yes Citab, tell them you like to fly a taildragger and you will have all the business you need. At $50 a blow, you will have that truck paid off in a few weeks. No tax and you probably won't need to eat. Or drink.

Besides ya'lls best efforts to joke around with this topic, finnally SOMTHING has paid off!

Yesterday I took in an application to Pappadeux resturant, and they gave me an interview on the spot! Now they want another one today at 3pm!

This morning, a PCT 5 Lt. Called me and asked me to come in and fill out a application. I submitted my pre-application a few days ago, and he contacted me today! whoo hoo! He wants me to come in monday 9am!!

Oh No. Another damn thread involving "The Art of Tipping and Not Tipping" from Citabria.
Link Posted: 7/3/2003 1:05:05 PM EDT
I don't know what your going to go for in a resuraunt. But I'll tell ya now if ya go in as a waiter, don't expect too many high tips. Most male waiters don't make alot on tips, only good looking females. Now imagine that!?!?!

Link Posted: 7/6/2003 7:20:26 PM EDT
Citabria,

Don't listen to the naysayers on waiting tables.

If you work it, the $2.30 per hour can be supplemented quite nicely by tips. Pappadeaux doesn't pool tips (I go to Cafe Pappadeaux on Kuykendahl & 1960 a lot..they bring my drink w/out me asking for it..Knob Creek, rocks..in case anyone cares)...anyway, if you know how to treat people, especially women, since you're male, you can get great tips. Just smile, make jokes (clean)...make GOOD suggestions when they want it and act like you give a shit...you'll do fine...Pappas is serious about customer svc so don't get an attitude...

Coz
