I Finally Got a Job and Made My Dad Happy

Posted on 15 September 2016 under Uncategorized

I understood fully that I needed to learn a new skill. My dad had been harping on me for quite some time to get a real job, but I just did not know what it was that I wanted to do. Not only that, I really did not know what I would be good at. I needed to figure something out quickly, though. On one particular weekend, a buddy who owns a business that does roof installation in Brooklyn NY called me to ask me if I would help him out. He was short three men for the day, and he would lose a big client without some help. I decided I would do it for the extra cash. It would make dad happy.

I had no experience doing roofing at all, so I was a bit nervous when I showed up for the job. I had never even been up on a roof before. I really did not know what to expect. My first day was pretty good, though. I got up on the roof and found that I have really good balance and could get around really easily. Then, my friend just had me to do things like hand him tools when necessary, haul things to different parts of the roof and get supplies up and down the ladder as needed. I was really surprised at how easy it was for me. It paid really well, and he asked me to come back again for another few days.

By the end of the week at my new job, I asked if my friend needed a new worker full time. I told him that I knew that I did not have a lot of experience, but I was a fast learner and felt that I had picked up quite a bit of knowledge in just the four short days that I had been working for him. He hired me on the spot. Dad is really happy that I am doing something with my life once again.
