Default I got a job! Finally!!!!

Yup, you read right. I FINALLY got a job! This is my first actual job on a payroll. I will be a salesperson at Sears Hardware & Appliance for Tools, Power tools, and Hardware. I am VERY excited as now I can finally have a bank account with my own hard earned money in it. Of course most of it will be gas money due to 93 being 3.75 a gallon. They are starting me out at $7.00 a hour for the first 90 days, then a determined amount after that, depending if they keep me or not.

Yeah, I forgot what percentage they said, but that makes me excited as I can buy a nice toolbox for my tools.

Congrats. You are going to need alot of discipline to not go hog wild on the purchase of tools. Most stores let their employees charge the purchase against their paychecks, and it is easy spend more than you make!
