I hate to get off topic.... but yes, occasionally I do think about finding a new career. Welding and being an industrial machinist is deep in my blood, and it would be very nice to get a career doing something like that. But, on the other hand I still get to play with metal and fix more stuff than a break occasionally, so this trade isn't too bad either.
Now quitting my boss as someone put it... man, every day them thoughts go through my head.
Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled... uhm... ***** session (sorry, couldn't think up any cleaver wording).
do i ever,....what is bad is when other people start asking you why you don't do something else(i.e.,like in the slow times,bad days,no profit,etc.).....i try to tell myself-if it was easy,everybody would do it.You gotta stay with it,that's for sure.....if it doesn't work out......i was looking for a job when i found this one.
