Hey! You're as young as you feel, and I feel...............well, this morning I do feel kinda old.

Just kidding, I don't really mind that I'm one of the older Fanatics here. It's not about your age, it's about your love for the Focus. Oh, and for the record, I'm 38. I'll turn 39 next February.

So I could have a job like:

~Working at a company making some where 16 to 20 an hour welding 7 DAYS a week an working 60+ hours an never see anyone or have a life.

~Working @ Michelin For a little bit lower pay doing welding.

~Working at Dishnetwork Referbishing old Dish's for like 10 or 12 an hour.

~Or work across the street For Timbar (packageing company) for probley the same pay.

~Work across the Street for Seimens making Stuff (dont even know what they make) for maybe im guessing 12-13 an hour.

So what do you Young an Old people (Brent an Brandon) think? I would love to have the 16 to 20 an hour job but not haveing a life would kill me.

Austin:
Coming from the perspective of my wife recently having a job where she worked anywhere between 30 and 35 hours of overtime a week, the 60+ hours a week isn't worth it. The money is great for a while, but the hours wear you down very quickly and what's the point of making all that money if you never have any time to spend some of it?

What are the hours like at Michelin? If the money is only a little lower and the hours are better, I'd go for it.

The packaging job sounds like general manual labor, which would do in a pinch, but would probably get boring pretty quickly.

Siemens is a pretty decent company so I understand, but it all depends on what you'd be doing there. It never hurts to check though.

Well that's my $.02, I'm sure Brandon will chime in at some point.

Raced him again last night. Gave him the leave and I had traction control on. I left when I saw his taillights go past me, and bc of TC I bogged like hell. And I still ran him down about half way down the track after he jumped about 5-6 cars on me with his leave and my bog.

Was this on a strip? Be careful, Mike. Your insurance is pretty high already, isn't it?
