    So I Landed Me A Job

    Well I been interested in this Field for quite some time now, im 25, and ever since i been 16 i been working at my buddies car shop a few doors down from a local HVAC company. and recently my buddy who owns the car shop would hint to the HVAC guy i am interested. So the other day he came down and offered me a job.
    Long story short. Today was my second day, and I dont know **** about any of this field or construction work. He said to make frames for the ducts and I had no idea what he was talking about. And Floor joyces, however you spell it.
    Today and yesterday i was drilling and sledge hammering a 4'x2' by about 10" piece of concrete foundation. My god that as a lot of work. After that i did a couple maintenance calls with the owner, went on a couple roofs.

    I dont know where to begin my homework for this

    if you are unsure what needs to be done ASK and ASK AGAIN until you understand
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Yes Mr. Wong, I am. You have alot of posts so maybe you forgot the requirements.
    15 tech related posts and a STUDENT or WORKS IN THE FIELD.
    I am in the field and plan on being a student. I became a pro member to learn in the technical threads. Everyone on here seems very helpful and I haven't seen any flamers.. But I know they are out there...
    So wowwwwww, time to work, be a grunt, go on maintenance calls and learn from the pros in the field. Sure beats the class room. WOW it's a nice day
