PostSubject: out of the tire game for now...   December 1st 2014, 6:23 pm

sorry i won't be able to help you guys out with tire products in the indefinite future. i wasn't happy and had to make a change. i had a good run of 15 years with the company and have many friends there though. somehow i ended up being the guy they sent to try and fix workflow issues at under-performing shops. that meant i was always knee deep in bullshit, working the longest hours, and i was stuck in that role. put in my 2 weeks notice on the 15th and i started my new job today.

on the plus side i will be able to go to wayyy more cruise nights and a lot more Saturday events now. cheers

Congrats. It's good to be happy. It takes a lot to stand up for what you deserve, and actually walk if you aren't satisfied with the response.

Yes Shawn i went back to HVAC. Midwest Comfort Solutions. my brother in laws company. he has been wanting me to come work for him for a few years now. my family has been wanting me to make this change for a while now. i had been putting it off because i try not to mix friends or family with work (unless they started out as co workers in the first place. lol). me and him have never had anything but a good relationship. he knows if work ever effects our family situation i'm gonna find something else to do as i value him as family first. a couple of my friends from Highschool already work for him so i felt kind of at home even the first day. i got home at 3:30 today and i am used to getting home at 9pm with the same start time. crazy what we let ourselves put up with and consider normal. i have no idea what to do with all this free time. i feel like i have been home too long without going to bed yet and it is still before i would get home from my old job...

the other job offer i had was from an ex-coworker who wanted me to manage an auto shop at a Costco store.

we are mulling around the idea of building a second garage at my parents house to store the Charger, Miata, and my dads building supplies that are currently in a storage unit year round. if we do that i am going to pick up a used tire machine and maybe a balancer to work on my own stuff. maybe then i can do side jobs or something.

That's cool like others said takes cujones to make a move after being somewhere for that long. I've been getting whooped for 7 + years and I'm not gonna do 15 or even 8 if I can help it.
