    Plus I think in the end of the day uni kids still make more on average than non-uni kids over their working life, not to mention uni kids probably have a better life expectancy too, air conditioned offices and board rooms, terrorist free private jets, only downside is a higher rate of kidnappings

    On a fair bit less than that now and it took a while to get here, but the difference is I'm doing 38hrs a week now and I really enjoy what I do now, it has it's downsides but it's even got it's own lifestyle to go with it, I've met some fantastic people and have been on trips around Australia and even to New Zealand ( I missed out on the Vegas one) in groups from 10-70 people (no we not Asian tourists)

    And that's what it is all about - enjoying what you do, and lifestyle!
    Can't complain about that. Congrats to you. :)
    I also got a few good junkets in my time - even lived in Korea for half a year.

    Worked till 6pm today with no anxiety and working tomorrow (saturday) until lunchtime......Should be a fairly easy morning for some good pay!

    Next week will be the real test as it will be a full 5 days working until 6pm.

    Try working 12hr days for 21 days straight with severe back pain. I have no sympathy.
    Anxiety attack? Smoke a joint and get back to it. You're a man, not a stay at home mum.

    Worked 7 till 12.30 today.

    Next week will be better because some of the workers will be going back out on the road for field service duties.

    So that means there will be much more room in the workshop and the xmas rush we have been working through will hopefully have slowed down.

    Is there any reason you don't smoke weed to relax?

    you mean apart from being illegal and possibly affecting job performance ?
    Do you also recommend drinking alcohol on the job as well ?

    Do you think his boss would rather him have a smoke and calm his nerves or go home early?

    If you let the government decide what is best for you then you're gonna have a bad time.

    Although to be fair, seeing it's TheEnd he'd probably go out of his way to make sure everyone in the shop knew he was doing it haha.

    Oh thanks Col! No i'm pretty private at work and I certainly dont smoke weed or consume alcohol.

    We have equipment that raises you off the ground up to 150 feet (mobile boom lifts) and when you are up there you really start thinking twice.

    Its scary enough operating them dead straight let alone being intoxicated.

    Next week I should start operating the bigger equipment alot more now that the rush is over.

    Gunna be fun!
