    I hope your not serious. Anxiety can be heightened by the affects of marijuana and only prescription medication used under the supervision of a qualified doctor or psychiatrist should every be used.
    And working with an injury is not impressive, if untreated could lead to makor issues. Bit at least you\ll feel like a man in your wheelchair.

    And one last thing being a stay at home mum is a fucken hard and you sure as fuck wouldn't want the mother of your kids having a fucken joint to get thru the day!!!

    No way thanks. Too many things can go wrong where I work and its against the law anyways.

    Mind you I dont mind a few beers after a days work or especially on the weekend after a hard week of work.

    Drugs/alcohol and machinery/equipment dont mix sorry.

    You're correct... but only if the kids are younger than school-age.
    When the kids were at home, I'd work every O/T shift I could lay my hands on.
    Once they went to school, it was a piece of piss - I'd volunteer to do the hard yards some days and be stay-at-home dad (when the surf was firing). :cool:

    You're a mechanic and you're going to blow your hard earned cash on a new car? That I'll never understand.

    I'm not a mechanic, and I've been driving an old 1990s Toyota for the past 10 years (it's never let me down BTW).

    Ha! That Toyota still has the new car smell then! Until 3 years ago was driving my last Mazda Bravo for 16 years! And it only let me down once.

    Wow $2100 is decent cash for a pay period. Once converted out from AUD to USD it is more than I am pulling down every two weeks. It sounds like you have a pretty good job.

    I just had to get a "new" car. It is new to me anyway. My '99 Corolla finally died and is going off to the junk yard. I got a '10 Corolla to replace it so I'm sure I'll get another good 10 years out of it. It is the sport model and whoever owned it before kept it VERY nice. I opened the hood and it looked brand new. I bought it from a dealer but the manager of the store is a good friend so I got it for about $2000 below Blue Book value plus it has a warranty. I like the new car because the old one has tried to kill me a few times but I'll still miss the old one. I have a lot of good memories with that car.

    Ye you cant beat Toyota's for reliability its no wonder they are the worlds biggest selling brand.

    Especially compared to some of the crap that comes out of China.

    I've seen and worked on some pretty dodgy equipment from China and alot of it is direct copies of proper equipment.

    Worked on a forklift at my new job the other day that was a direct copy of a Nissan forklift.

    Had trouble finding parts and had to use aftermarket parts to get job done.
