    ~Warning: Kind of long, cliff notes at the bottom~

    Well I guess I'll start it off, I'm in the roadside assistance business, I get to drive around all day in a truck to help morons that either 'A' run out of gas 'B' lock their keys in their car or 'C' cant change their own god damn tire. I also do jump starts but that I don't mind doing. Anyways I don't complain because these morons pay my $30/commission every time they do something stupid. But today this guy tops them all, I get a call from dispatch around 5pm for a lockout on a vehicle in a Boeing company parking lot. So I get there and guess what its a high security compound owned by the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) so I drive up to the gate and I tell the guards that I'm with blah, blah company and I'm here to help some guy in the Boeing parking lot. After waiting about 10 or so mins, I'm let in and met by a huge welcoming party of armed personnel and DHS marked SUV's. I get a personal motorcade style escort to the Boeing building. After about a 10 min drive we find the guy sitting next to his car, a 2007 Acura TL Type-S it was teh sex. So I get out of the car to meet and talk to the guy to get some information(he seemed a bit pissed off and annoyed). I go back to my truck to get the tools and come back, as I was attempting to unlock the driver side door the guy asks me 'what the hell are you doing? the door is unlocked' to my surprise I pull the door handle and the door opens. I respond with 'hmm... didn't you call about being locked out of the car?' and he comes back with the stupidest fucking remark in the world and if there weren't armed guards with MP-5's standing 10 feet away I would of punched him in the face. 'I locked my keys inside my trunk if they were inside the car I wouldn't be standing out here waiting for you to take 45 mins to get here' I try not to burst out in laughter but fail horribly 'doesn't your vehicle have a trunk release?' I walked over and hit his trunk release and his jaw dropped and had the most dumbfounded look I had ever seen. I walk to the back of the car and grab his keys to hand back to him because hes still in a complete shock of stupidity. I have him sign some forms and I was on my way, I couldn't help but think this guy works for Boeing and didn't know his car came with a truck release, I hope he isn't designing the aircrafts.

    So anyways thats mine so go ahead and share some of yours.

    :cliffs:
    -Dispatch call to Boeing building inside high security DHS compound about someone being locked out of their car
    -Personal motorcade style escort to Boeing building
    -My first look at the sexiest Acura I've ever seen in person the 2007 TL Type-S
    -Customer locked his keys in his truck but the driver side door was unlocked
    -I burst out in uncontrollable laughter, hit the trunk release and hand the keys back to the driver
    -I get escorted off the site and hope the moron isn't a designer or engineer for Boeing airplanes, and I'm never going to fly on a Boeing aircraft ever again.

    I hate the fact that I am on training pay and when I do actually start I will still be making shit money. I'm gonna be selling tools and I get a whopping 4% commission on most sales plus an awesome $6/hr base. I'm living the American dream lol. I work for Sears btw. Already trying to find another job.

    I feel your pain BodyDropped don't get me wrong I actually like my job but if I had to pick something it would be seeing crappy movies over 100 times each...... Just think about it you could have my job and see movies like Dreamgirls, The Shooter, Norbit, The Condemned over 100 times each.... :)

    its wal-mart. wal-mart tire and lube isnt that bad but the micro-management by people that dont even know how to CHECK their own oil much less change it is what drives me up a wall. our department manger is a HUGE black lady who wears a different weave everyday. i was changing a battery and she leans out the door to the shop and yells at me for not using a funnel.

    I love my job - seriously I don't ever not want to go to work. What I hate is ignorant people who always say that I am overpaid and use the line "those who can't do - teach". If it was that easy and overpaid everyone would be flooding to the nearest school.

    i hate the fact that our clients all want a refund. which we only have 1 refund policy, so i have to deny a lot of people.

    i also don't do anything else but go online, it was fun for the first 2 yrs but it gets boring.


    but its better than hangin outside of HD

    Thats a big funnel.

    I cant list what i hate about my job. There are post length limits.

    What I like:
    I hunt people. The most thrilling and challenging game to hunt is the human.
    I sit at a desk otherwise, and surf the internet.
    Free coffee.

    ummm... that is all.

    I never really get how that whole bail bonds/bounty hunter thing works. Where does the money from your salary come from? commissions or something like that.
    I guess if I don't already know that it is a good thing.

    I dont hate my job. I find it annoying when customers dont want to pay their interest and get all pissy and start swearing and yellling at me because it doesnt work like a mortgage loan...
