I may have a really good new job!
i dont like counting my chickens before the eggs hatch, but its looking very good.
a short while back i decided i wanted to drive a Semi. but the only thing i wasnt going to like was not being home every night even tho i have no strings at home. well, one of my best friends, wifes grandpas, has been driving since 1972, and right now is driving for a company called rush delivery out of dayton. He just bought another van, a Ford E-250 cargo can, and was looking for a driver and told my friend about it. he told him ive been wanting to find a driving job of some kind, so my friend got me in touch with A.C. and heres whats happening
after talking to AC about it for a while, he told me that what he is going to do, is as long as i get the job, he is going to just sign the van over to me, and for me to just pay him what he has in it over what ever amount of time. so, im going to be running my own driving business!
he went with me down to Rush to talk to some people since he knows them well, and i filled out an application. the only problem we could see happening is their drivers have to be 23. Im only 22 but will be 23 in March...so she said they can probably have that waived...and she told me if she did NOT call me it was a good thing. and its been a few days with nothing from her, so im just trying to get ahold of her today about it.
AC was telling me how much ill be making, and granted i have to pay for my own gas, but it is tax deductable, he said on a slow week, ill make over 1000 bucks, and on a normal week, around 1400-1500. so much better then the crappy place i work now. plus this sounds like a job that really has some room in it. i mean, since its going to be my business, i can buy more vans after i get into the groove of everything, and hire drivers to work for me. it sounds like ill be able to make a really good living with this job. im extremely psyched about it
but anyways, im just waiting to hear back from her today in responce to my voicmail i left her earlier, and if i got it, the van is going to become mine today...the van will also be nice bc i wanted a truck to haul jeep parts in, and with this, it will be no problem...i can even town my jeep with it being a 3/4 ton
So wish me luck all!
