I’m now in my second week of work and I can honestly say that the job is a lot of fun and a great deal of hard work.
My father-in-law got me a job working at a construction site with him. He is the project manager, but I rarely ever see him on the job site. Last week he dropped me off on Monday morning and told a guy to show me the ropes. The next thing I know, I was standing on top of a steel beam with a piece of iron rebar in my hand. I was almost fifty feet off the ground. Thankfully I do not have a fear of heights. I found my father-in-law again on Friday night when my wife and I went to have dinner with her parents. My father-in-law asked me how the job was going. I told him that I did not know I was going to be working with rebar. He laughed and wanted to know what I thought he was doing to make money. I knew that he was in construction, but I thought that he worked with wood or drywall. The guy actually works with iron and concrete. I’m now in my second week of work and I can honestly say that the job is a lot of fun and a great deal of hard work. Even though I’m not really doing anything important, I feel good going to work and making money. My father-in-law said he would be able to give me a raise in a month or two. That will be nice, because I am trying to save up money so I can get a place for my wife and I that is nicer than the apartment and dump where we currently live.
