Once we clued in on the fact that life is finite, the thought of losing it didn't scare us anymore. The end comes no matter what, all that matters is how you wanna go out, on your feet or your knees?

You ain't kidding.

But, I really don't see a 'dry spell' as being a con. To me, the fewer calls I have to respond to, the better. That means that: A. we're doing a good job with education and prevention (a major part of firefighting) and B. People aren't getting hurt.

The longer we go without a call, the better I feel. Although, there are few things that beat the adrenaline rush that comes from packing up and getting your ass inside of a place that normal people are trying like hell to get OUT of.

Not I. I like the job, but dealing with the idiots of the population comes with the territory of being a manager.

If there is a problem, they come running to you first.

Yea, you are right. Perhaps I should make an addendum to my first post. Lack of calls is not a bad thing at all. Being bored on shift does suck, but I'd rather people be safe and smart.

No kidding about the adrenaline rush. I still remember everything about my first structure fire. I'm sure you do too. How long the ride seemed to take. How shaky I was trying to pack up when I got out of the truck (yea, I got stuck in the tanker that doesn't have the seat inserts for our SCBA packs.) And definitely shaking the homeowners hand when he thanked all of us for what we had done.

Almost makes me want to make a career out of it. Someday maybe.

Definitely worth all of the hard work that goes into it, and it makes you realize that there are other kinds of payment than a check at the end of the week.

And no, I will never, ever forget my first structure fire for many reasons.

What I've noticed with customers at my job is that they are quick to complain about things that really aren't that confusing such as prices, coupons, and current deals such as the select $5 footlongs.  People are just lazy and won't read for themselves.

The other thing that really irks me is just how rude some people are.
me-"Hey guys, how we doing tonight"
them-no response

Or people that think they are in a sit down restaurant and its ok to leave their trash on the table instead of putting it in the trash can which is no more than 10 feet away at any point in the store.

Job: Cashier at large Texas grocery store chain: H.E.B.

Pay: $8/hr.

Hrs: Anywhere from 12 (ugh) to 35.

Pros: Got a HUGE break with this job. It's my first job, and I had NO prior work experience. But the HR guy said he liked my personality so he tossed me a checking position, which is normally reserved to people with more work experience. Oh, and this one time at around 11 p.m. (I'm often late/closing shift), this one chick came in wearing a deep v-neck with nothing beneath it (obviously) and had a rather large nip-slip. Interesting night.

Cons: I get to deal with all the tards that do their bulk grocery shopping at like 12 a.m. That, and monotony.

PS: I actually really like my bosses. They're all nice people. So are my fellow employees. All in all, a good gig.
