Hey man let me just say this... Your jeep is really great, and many things you have done I have put on my list. ( Im getting a jeep soon)

Dont listen to the neh sayers. Honestly I have read your whole thread, every one seems to be getting on your junk about your choices. And then there is the guy that is a walking talking billboard for what ever mods he has on his jeep. Just dont listen to it. I think you have dont a great job. I hate the look of the zj's I dont know why, but I love yours lol. I am looking at one that is close to me, and I might go the same route as you with it if I buy it.

Oh one other thing. I think I rember you saying something about working at UPS, and I had afew questions about that. I work at the brown too up in MN.... yea brown lol

i was a loader for my first 30 days. right after my 30 days hit they switched me to unload because there were about 3 times where i almost punched my part time sup in the face (dude was a ****in tool and terrible with people). he'd get in my face about not getting irregs off the grating fast enough, despite the fact that i was holding down the 2nd and 3rd busiest trailers in my PD (this still being within my first 30 days mind you - there were 7 others who had worked there for well of a year, some 3 years, but he had me doing those trailers by myself).

so then they switched me to unload. a lot better, but still a miserable job. hated going there every night. all the part time sups were miserable there to so theyd take it out on us. but all the loaders/unloaders were cool as ****. i will miss a few of them

lucky you, youll at least be getting paid more. 8.50 is garbage for the work you do there. absolute garbage

UPS is one of those jobs that only pay well after you've been there for a while - mainly because it's Union. Kroger was like that, but I can't complain after sticking it out since the pay and benefits are pretty sweet for being 19.

Yea I did the loader thing for awhile... I hated it. Im in unload now while I am learning the new job and I gotta agree its way better. Yea the pay is way better, and I agree the 8.50( 9.50 if you pass your pick off test) is lame.... The guys that speak no english down at McD get paid the same amount, and I am sorry they do wwwaaayyyy less work. Anyone who looks down on a UPS loader needs to get slapped.

I think many people would be happy to have a job to begin with right now. and Mc Donald's doesn't pay that well. Regardless, I'd take any job involving manual labor over a customer service position where you have to deal with the General Public. There are idiots. It's amazing they can breath.
