On monday, I start a series of trial shifts at a local bicycle shop.

When I was waiting for my starter clutch to be replaced,
I wandered into a bike shop I've never been to before and just started shooting the shit. Offhandedly mention I saw their "experienced cyclist wanted" sign and ask what qualifies. Tell them my experience, shoot the shit some more talking about riding, bikes, etc, end up giving them my contact info and the dude said he'd talk to the owner about an interview.

Figured "cool, wasn't really looking for anything at the moment, we'll see what happens."

Got a call yesterday from the owner saying "he said it sounded like you know your stuff, how would you like to try it out a shift a week and see if you're a good fit?"

This is cool, I have been wanting more experience working on stuff, it's just expensive on your own. And bicycles are easy. I might start building frankenstein bikes or just flipping old bikes on Craigslist for spare cash on the side.

Had an interview process at my dream job/company today from 1pm till 5pm. It went way longer then I had hoped and there was zero breaks for food. It was a three separate interview processes. Got to meet and do an interview with the quality control guy for my Trilogy community. First the first time ever they had 100 homes pass with zero defects reported by homeowners. Killed that interview and then interviewed with the guy I had already met with two separate times, killed it even harder. Spoke to him for a whole hour half. And lastly interviewed with the VP of sales for that Trilogy and destroyed that interview.
Felt great, been super stressing over this since it is a huge passion of mine to work for Shea Homes and to be able to stay in the area and lastly it is my only job prospect at the moment. Fingers crossed but it seems like I will get the position as a JR Community Representative. They are interviewing two other people but was told I got a leg up on the competition. Even being told that they would expect me to only stay as a JR CR for about a year before they would push me to go get my MBA which they would pay for so that I could start doing "large escrow deals" for Shea.
Ah man and I graduate in December, this shit makes me so happy and surprisingly I had a lot of fun in the interview process. Never really interviewed like this before so I surprised myself with how well I truly did. Looking forward to sending out those thank you emails tomorrow and then waiting a month or so before they give me word about whether I got the position or not.
It's been a good day.

got fired today for the thinnest bullshit reason

literally- threw away a wrapper to a part worth $25 and when other parts turned out to be n/a we couldn't send it back for credit

I would be mad but I've hated this job for a while and was gona quit next month after my house went on the market.

still, I find it kinda insulting that this is all the shit they can come up with? Why not just say "we hired a newb and pay him 1/3 what we pay you, but he has certs so we can keep our contracts even if you leave, so gtfo."

Jokes on them, their shop manager is shit tier and when they lose the ol' timer tech next year they are gona be HARD press to keep anyone decent around.

I go into the woods and forage and sell the crap I find to health food stores and restaurants. $18/lb for morals, $4/lb for ramps and fiddleheads, chicory, dandelion, berries, the list goes on and on.

You just need to make sure you're not picking moonseed which looks like grapes, mayapple which produces apple like fruit, or daphne which has bright red poisonous berries. There is a shitload of fruit in New York that is incredibly poisonous.

I have ramps on my own property but there are numerous river islands were I pick fiddle heads. None of them are posted so I just go canoe over and pick 50 pounds or so. As far as I'm concerned if they wanted to keep people like me away they would have put up adequate signage.
> I'm kind of surprised they're allowed to serve food some random guy got out of the woods
A lot of what I forage can't be commercially grown, so if people want to eat some Ramps, chicken-of-the-woods, fiddleheads they have to make do with what a weirdo digs out of the woods.

How I'm treated by shitty servers on any given shift.

Busser: Lower than shit, servers have unwarranted arrogance toward this position.

To-go: Neutral, indifferent until I deny them access to my POS because they'll get in the way of orders. Constantly asked if I'm bussing that shift in hopes they'll be able to bitch me out,

Expo: actually treated decently because I control how fast their table's order is up, the presentation and cleanliness of their dishes. And if any of it is askew, it's on their head, not mine.

I work 5 different positions in the restaurant, those three being the most common and involves the most interaction with servers.

Had my first trial at the bike shop.

I just had to build a bike, just a shitty 3 speed internal hub cruiser. Seemed easy, until I realized I had no experience with these kinds of bikes. I still did it, but I had to ask questions about mounting the derailleur, and seat and handlebar positions.

And in my sleep deprived and waning caffeine daze, originally had the front fork backwards... I caught it, but that was just a minor oversight caused by me cursing this sinus infection and dreaming about a fresh pot of coffee simultaneously while installing it.

The Super Liberal at work is getting on my fucking nerves. Completely out of nowhere, he told me that whatever I do with my kids, never buy them toy guns. I guess he thinks they set the stage for gun violence. Later that day, I noticed in the signature section of his work email, above the address, phone number, fax number, he'd put "He, Him, His". I stared at that in confusion for a moment until it dawned on me. They're his pronouns. He put his god damn pronouns in the motherfucking signature of his work email. Despite being gay, he is very much a man. Bushy beard, beer gut, it's not even in question.

Had more people call back and tell me their order was wrong or missing something today than every single other day combined.

We had this dumb fat bitch in the back pairing to go items with their proper bags. In theory.

In practice, she couldn't read for shit, she'd get flustered if anything was put in front of her and she has zero common sense.

I mean, we had entire orders going out missing not one, but several entrees. The occasional missed item is understandable, I still miss a thing here or there. But several entrees is fucking unacceptable.

"Double check her work before sending it out" I can hear others saying. But, if you understood how fast paced a shift can be, you'd understand why I'm not going to do that. Also, then I'd be doing her job for her, which I will not do unless I'm getting her pay too.

Which is exactly what I told her when she told us we "have" to check her work for her because she was getting bitched out by managers. "Am I getting your tips? No? Do your job, then." Then I decided to confuse her by mixing "sink or swim" with "crash and burn" telling her to "sink or burn."

God, I love messing with teenagers. It's amazing finding out what kind of shit they've never heard of.

One last general studies requirement left. Thought I got rid of them all but apparently none of the AJS classes I took counted toward social and behavioral sciences. I thought about just taking a level 200 criminology class, but I really need to put that stuff behind me.

It came down to Victims and Crisis Management, or Introduction to Social Welfare. I took the day to think about it and I think learning more about services available and a brief history thereof is unfamiliar territory yet relevant to life outside my chosen field.

Working with a chick today, things started to slow down after the rush and I just got done adjusting the tips and closing out orders on the POS.

As I moved over cash into the tip drawer, chick I'm working with says "are you threatening them or something?"

"What?"

"No one I've worked with on curbside brings back as good of tips as you. Are you, like, threatening them or something? "

"Not outright, just heavily implied by being overly kind."

Real answer is I'm attentive, friendly, and know how to make people laugh.

I'm going to make bank when I finally start serving, right now I make a pittance at togos. I have to split the tips amongst 3 people including myself at the end of the night.

You would think gay people of all people would understand the need for self defense. Far too many gay people get "fag-bashed" because they have no way to defend themselves from the closeted redneck faggots who like to beat up and occasionally rape gay men because having sex with men is bad.......and there is nothing at ironic about that, nothing.

On topic.....

I was working the front desk yesterday because I guess I needed some misery in my life. Some guy walks about to the desk and asks me if I can tell him the prices of the books he has.

I work at a library.

I inform him of this fact, that we let people check out books not buy them. Guy starts getting pissed about it, he wants to buy these books and he should be allowed. I again explain, we let people check out books not buy them, would you like to check out these books sir?

Dude just dumps the books right there on the floor and storms out in a huff.

I'd almost think the fucker was trolling me if not for the fact he actually seemed genuinely upset he could not buy the bullshit he had gotten. He was young as fuck, like a teenager, so maybe he didn't know how libraries work or something as was so coddled he couldn't handle being told no, I dunno.

And whats really stupid is there is a Books A Million literally a stone throw away. Well maybe not stone throw for me, I got some pitiful arms. Back in elementary school some of the girls beat me on throwing a baseball during fitness day and I was 2nd to last in the boys. My still laughable strength aside we are still fucking close, we are within visual distance of the local mall with its book store.

Even more stupid, the stupid cunt had a bunch of anime backwards ass books with a bunch of yaoi looking bullshit on the cover. For some reason I found that utterly hilarious.

In retrospect I could have just overcharged the dumb fuck for the books, pocketed the money and listed the books destroyed.

I think that would have taken more thought then he was capable of. I did the same fucking shit as a poor broke kid, would "lose" books when I was moving from an area. Did the same thing to JR Rotc. Not something I'm proud of, well maybe a little proud over the JR Rotc just because sticking it to those tools feels good even now, but still it didn't take a genius level intellect to figure how to do.

On topic myself, I'm pissed about tomorrow. Since I work in multiple departments, I got double scheduled on sunday. Togos and expo.

Informed management, let them know I'd rather have the togo shift because I'd make more money and I need it. They said they'd see what they can do. Get told today that getting a togo shift covered is easier than expo, so now I'm working expo tomorrow. Vid at :25 seconds is very related right now.

That reminds me.

mesacc dot edu/workforce-development/azami/industry-certification-boot-camps/electrical-wiring-j-standard

If any of you guys remember me talking about an electrical wiring boot camp, last week was the 2nd class ever. The 3rd one takes place at the end of July.

It's one week at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and you'll earn a J-Standard soldering certificate as well as learn how to make a simple harness with a D-sub and an AN/MS connector and ground lugs.

More importantly, what they're not disclosing is that an employer is aware of the existence of the course since they were visited by the instructors who put the program together and taught the first class, and pretty much you'll be offered a position after completion. It's a fulltime contract position (40hrs/wk) and it starts at 12bux/hr, but hey, it got me into a field I had no prior experience in, and a foot in the doors of a major aerospace name.

The two biggest issues I'm seeing is that the fees/kit costs 500bux and that it's an 8am-5pm commitment for a whole week. Kinda steep for an entry-level position making harnesses. I know that some politics is going on to try to get the cost reduced.

Anyhow, I'm pretty enthusiastic about the program and we definitely need more guys on the floor, so if you're an AZ operator who lives close enough to Mesa, specifically the Chandler-Gilbert Williams campus, and you're desperate for work and you're interested, I'd be willing to put up $250 to match you on the class fees.

This picture is nowhere near accurate for the restaurant industry, days off are random. Though, you can get a feel of what days you'll be working on weeks with big events or holidays, if you're a strong player.

A) Weve been under a water boil advisory now for like 2 weeks. Cause poopy water

B) Mosquito came out with a vengeance. Example. Walked to the car at 0630 and my arm tickled. I looked down expecting a bug. What I saw was about 3 dozen mosquitoes on my arm. City has declared they arent going to gas/spray for mosquitoes, until there are confirmed cases of west nile or whatever.

Dude I fucking feel you on that one. Pretty much my job is doing whatever job everyone else can't be arsed to do. My job is supposed to be like working the inventory, putting books and shelves and pulling them and handling deliveries to and from our branch. But I work all kinds of other jobs like computer and equipment maintenance, working help desks, playing baby sitter in the computer lab, and setting up meeting rooms plus other crap.

Mind you I don't mind that most of the time but it can get a bit annoying on occasion, I like to have alot of sameness. Its a bit disconcerting to one day be buried in the food infested guts of a machine, the next watching to make sure a bunch of assholes are surfing porn, and the next helping douches find books and check them out (though not check me out, forever alone).

Do you have a set job but get pulled to where ever you are needed or is your job just to go where ever you are needed?

Set shift, but get pulled wherever I'm needed.

Last night, I had a bussing shift. But, I was food running, barbacking, portioning, doing expo, cashing out togo orders, etc all night. Which I have no complaints, I'd rather do all that than bus.

Often this could be the result of spindle RPM being a little on the quick side. If you have a 2" hole saw and you're cutting steel, say mild shit (1020), SFM is give or take 90 with HSS. Quick and dirty way of getting your spindle (or drill press or hand drill) RPM will be 90*4/diameter of spinning bit.

So around 180RPM.

Don't forget one very important factor as well; you also have a shitton of teeth on hole saws. Say you have 24 teeth, at 180RPM you'd need to feed at 4"/min to take 0.001" chip per tooth. That might bog down some hand drills and some little drill presses, so you'll have to spin even slower.

tl;dr if your cutting tool has lots of teeth and big in diameter, spin slow and feed good, it'll cut a whole lot better.

Weirdest shit happened.

I was just coming back inside after delivering food, was about to cash another customer out and bring them their shit when a coworker said "line 2 is for you, they asked for you by name."

...okay. "thank you for calling generic steakhouse, this is Caseless speaking. How can I help you today?"

Old lady breathing heavy answers, "hello? Hello? Caseless?"

"Yes, how can I help you?"

Lots of rustling and breathing on her end of the line, then she hits me with it. "Breathe into the microphone, do it."

"What?"

"Breathe in the microphone, come on!"

It's very apparent at this point that whoever is on the other line is either masturbating or trying to make it sound like they're masturbating. I replied "I'm not... who is this?"

"Come on, breathe into the microphone! "

"Ma'am I don't know what this is, but I'm not doing that."

Then I hear rustling with heavy breathing and grunts followed by it hanging up.

I'm pretty creeped out, I have no idea what that was.

I'm not going to wait around to see if I got a hard badge or not.

Yesterday I put in my two weeks' notice with my boss at day job. When I'd interviewed for my summer internship at the packaging company a couple weeks ago, I guess it went a little too well, because one of my classmates, the operations manager, offered me a position which would increase my hourly wage by 50%, with a pay increase that would get me past the twenties plus fulltime benefits package after the 90-day probationary period.

If things don't work out, though, I've been told the door will be left open for me back on the shop floor. Glad I'm not burning bridges, as they've been fairly good to me.

I do owe an apology to my team lead after she gets back from the weekend, though, as she had put in for me to receive additional training and cert for making of the special harnesses that get ordered every so often, upon recommendation from one of the layup guys.

Today at my night/weekend job I will need to revise my schedule change request to be weekends only. I may end up needing to quit altogether depending on what the overtime situation at the new job will be like.

My contract house, Chipton-Ross, as well as PDS Tech and one other name I don't recall, have always posted entry-level positions for the aerospace industry around here, which usually don't require more than highschool/GED. With them or with someone else, if there's ever a job you've secured in Arizona, and you can find a reliable vehicle and an affordable place to stay, I'll pay your first month's rent.

On another note, during finals week I saw apprenticeships for wastewater processing on the City of Scottsdale's website. Definitely one of the most cushy and coveted yet gratifying positions to hear one of my welding instructors talk about it.

http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/hr/jobs

Also read an interesting spot just now for a Police Aide which is like auxiliary patrol minus the powers of arrest, I think, and a Court Clerk I. Both just require graduating high school or having a GED, though the court clerk position requires two years of customer service, lol. I don't know that I would have necessarily ever been as set college after high school if I'd have known about these sorts of opportunities when I was younger.

NC lathes are still a little creepy to me. I think I've kind of lost my anxiety with mills more or less and I'm down to just normal paranoia (wait, did I ACTUALLY tighten that clamp or am I just remembering a dream I had once?). At the end of the day, it just feels like there's a lot less bigness as far as stuff moving potentially into each other.

That being said, I run a pretty huge ass mill right now. I'm sure if that crashes it'll sound like a bomb too.

>it just feels like there's a lot less bigness as far as stuff moving potentially into each other

Yeah lathes are a step up most of the time compared to mills (usually).

The worst is when there's some short boring bar or parting tool and the turret has a giant insert drill like two feet long. You have all this mess moving around with a massive drill just barely missing the chuck and headstock of the machine.

You tell yourself "It'll clear. It cleared last time, it'll clear next time, it's clearing right now".

Then it rapids to another position and you still get a little jump in heart rate.

4 or 5 axis milling machines get interesting too regardless of the programmer, there's an unwritten rule of machining that he has to put all the action where you can't see it, but it's just not so minute-to-minute holyshitclosefastmovinglargesharpbitsspinning.

pic related doesn't look so bad until you realize it's going to go even lower, and then going to move around. It usually cleared, but due to aerospace regulations on program and setup sheet modifications, we couldn't alter anything or include relevant information about tool stickout. Have fun 4 axis 3D ballnose profile machining. Sure some of the other guys that had done the setup before kept their notes, but they weren't usually around.

>also lol the forging stock material for that part is like 4k monies

Imma ask a probably stupid and definitely easily google-able question:

My current work is in 3d printing and all of the toolpath stuff is handled by software I make up a part in Solidworks and configure the machine settings but the actual g-code is handled by the slicing software.

Is the same true of CNC mills where software exists to generate toolpaths from a CAD file or is that something you do manually (or some mixture of the two)?
>> No. 10460 ID: 98c1a2
>>105660
You can do it by hand depending of the shape with G02 and G03 while flipping Z for X or Z for Y with G17, G18, and G19 (on most controllers). This gets somewhat time consuming to do step-over scallop stuff for complex surfaces but you can switch to incremental and go into a subprogram that has a repeat word (L on the mazak for example).

Nobody does this anymore. It's a shame, because it's very pretty to look a program written like this.

When you have a CADCAM program, you have your part or surfaces modeled and assign toolpaths to it. Depending on the path, CADCAM program, and part, the post-processor (calculator output of the program that defines what G-codes are used, mill or lathe, what M-codes to use depending on controller) will spit out the code that you need. Usually it'll be straight code, just XYZ(add other axes here) coordinates. Not great to read through, just pages of XYZ and so on, but hey it works.

My coworkers finally succeeded in dragging me out to South Beach in Miami. I wanted to see some neon, and I was not disappointed.

Lots of tits and ass on display, but few were actually attractive. Eh, I just don't like black / cuban chicks that much. There were a couple of skinny chicks that were pretty hot, but I'd say the girls in SOCAL and Dallas are better.

We passed by a club called "Mangos" which is apparently pretty wild. From outside you can see the female bartenders dancing on the counters. Some of my coworkers went there last week and were paying $30-50 per drink.

Interestingly, along Ocean Avenue, a lot of the clubs and restaurants have outdoor tables and with hot hostess chicks to draw people in... and sell cigarettes. Y'know like at baseball games, the vendors that walk the stands with boxes of stuff on a sling? Same thing, with tits and smokes. (And sometimes LED lights.)

Every single dinner rush. I get yelled at every day because of this, just part of the job. Though, I do love hear them screaming "NOWWAITAMINUTE" when I'm setting down the phone to prepare shit.

We have a huge call volume, some people aren't getting answered at all, that's just how it is. When you have only one phone that can take orders and the person who takes the orders also has to put it in the POS(which is hard to do because managers will steal the terminal whenever, which is often), print tags, staple them to the bag, put bread in a box (which is harder than it sounds if the person on bake sucks ) as the first part of every order, take the bag to the kitchen, plus a bunch of other small things, you just can't get to everybody. Now, if one person was dedicated to phones only, we might be able to keep up with more. But that is not happening.

While it's a simple job, the pace and volume can be mentally exhausting. Expecially dealing with dumb people all day.

I clarified this stuff with my boss ahead of time, this is how we're going to do it. If you've got a problem, talk to your boss and HR. Now can we get back to recording time?

Fucking hell.

FUCK!

> Yinz asks keeps asking questions about general work policies, hypothetical scenarios, "what if" questions, and "why" questions.
> Me: Dude, I don't know why we do things this way. I don't know why the boss decided this or that. I don't know why human resources came up with this policy. I don't know why our engineers haven't provided us the information. I'm here to show you how to use the damn software.

To get the crazy train back on track I put a moratorium on "why" questions, (because I don't fucking know), I told one of the young guys to just shut up and explained that next time it would be "Shut the fuck up" and then I'd start throwing shit. And I told Terry Tate to take up his issues with someone that matters.

Fffffuuuuucccccccckkkkkkk.

Even being a friendly crowd, it was fucking rough. The young guys are moving ahead and getting side tracked and not listening, the old guys need assembly language level step-by-step instructions on how to press the "any key" and bitching and bantering about policies and "the old days".

During lunch time I just ate and went to my room and played 30 minutes of DOOM. One of the guys in class sent me a big ass text message of encouragement saying I was doing a great job. Two guys I talked to at dinner complimented me on keeping my shit together and getting them back on track.

More out of sympathy I think. I don't know how visibly pissed I got.

After gaining minor experience working on electronics, a lot of spare time reading and watching videos about electronics and building PCs, I'm actually considering changing my career path.

Like, I'm seriously enjoying this subject, even more so than anything mechanical. I've never considered it before because I've never had the experience, it seemed foreign and since I've always been too poor to build my own PC, I just kind of ignored it.

Now that I'm spending more time on the subject and learning more about it, it all just seems to click.

I figure I can do this and still work on aircraft, they seem to have a lot of pretty lights. I'm just trying to figure out where to start and which specific field of study would land me a job doing what I want to do.

Cool, bro. Look into avionics; that might be a good fit for you.

That is a big difference, modern PCs are pretty much plug and play and no-brain easy even compared to older models. To work in electronics you will have to actually learn something about electricity.

Average application in electronics requires hundreds or thousands connections to design, draw, trace or/and verify. You will have to remember these diagrams or parts of them to work comfortably, and it may even go as far as having most of your designs embedded into your memory, pop up into your thoughts and dreams. All in all, it is pretty much a requirement to have an OCD if you doing anything more complicated than contactor wiring, so consider carefully.

I know, PCs are like Legos. I only mention it because it kind of started me down the path to taking a closer look at the parts.

I knew I wanted a technical career and was leaning toward the mechanical side of things, but I found that I like working with electrical components a lot more.

Also, I have severe OCD. Should be a good fit.

>>105794
Yeah, that's what I'm currently looking at.

Godspeed, you beautiful autist you :P

Seriously though, I'm happy for you. At the risk of getting a little maudlin (I am drunk, so it would be only natural), I've always rather liked you, and it's gratifying to see you finally begin to turn things your way. You've got balls, Pria-kun.

Nah but seriously, electronics are fun as fuck if a tiny bit mystifying in the theory (practical stuff is easy to pick up really because you just learn that this does that but the explanation in the background can be difficult to conceive of sometimes).

In a way I'm drawn to it because it's different enough to my academic/professional technical knowledge base that I can sort of chill out with it. Take stuff apart, try to understand it, reassemble or fix, make from scratch and so on.


As Frost said though you have been putting in the hard graft man so I hope you find your path that really gets you out of bed in the morning, perhaps that technical electronics direction.

Thanks.

I still have a ways to go, but I'll eventually have a career I'm content with. And not work with teenagers and hundreds of dumb customers a day.

I am still working part time at the AAFES gun counter and I am getting pretty sick of customers and corporate. Corporate took away our ability to order guns locally and orders are taking up to 2 months rather than the 2 days they used to take. On top of that corporate has seen fit to put all our guns on planogram with absolutely no order to it what so ever (not by caliber or manufacturer). Local leadership has bought us a bit of a reprieve from that by saying we wont do it until we have 80% of the guns in stock, but we'll still have to do it. They also wont stop sending me hunting rifles, we can't use them here in Ohio. They sent us all these 308 & 30-06 rifles for deer season and they are going to sit in the back until we get someone who travels out West to go hunting. On my finial note I hate when customers feel the need to tell me they are "just looking." If I walk up and ask how you're doing today or what you're up to I don't give a shit if you're here to buy or not, I'm bored and I want to talk. I've started walking away from customers that tell me they are just looking.

On the plus side I just registered an LLC for my concealed carry training to I can't get sued personally. I also got a website made, getting them both up and running put a cramp on my training schedule but I'm hoping to get up and running again soon. I found a location that is pretty cheap to rent and has a range right behind it. So when I get my schedule straight I can teach 10/15 person classes and rake in $1000 for a days work.

AKR doesn't eat produce because Mexicans shit and piss in the field.

I wonder where he is.

I often ask the Mexican kitchen staff if it's technically a family business if they're preparing food their cousins picked.
