after setting up my machine (extruder)i watched 10,500 itty bitty pieces of rubber fall into little boxes. i can't believe they pay me to do this!

I used to love working on trip presses...Coil steel would turn into kool shaped parts in the blink of an eye all day long...And the sound of the dies cutting and shaping was soothing...All with a little flick of your foot...

my first real job at boeing, they tried to hide a few of us from layoff - in 3 months, i had 80 hours of work come across my bench - so I read the whole Post Intelligenser every nite. by the time i was laid off, you couldn't get a job at a gas station!
