Default Wow, Neato Gang

Well I am pretty proud of myself. I just started a new job working as a Groundskeeping Student for the Local Hospital. Its a 7:00 - 3:00 job. Before this job i had always worked at fast food, or working on computers, all not hard and no real hard work involved. And i had never worked an 8 hour shift before. Well after today i put in two 40 hour weeks in a row. I am pretty proud of myself. Outside all day working in the heat and rain, and i actually stuck it out and stayed 8 hours a day. If anyone actually knew me they would know that that is an acomplishment. I know you guys probably all work 8 hours a day, but it'* a new thing for me. I just can't wait until Thursday to get an 80 hour paycheck! Well enough of my blabbering.



Side Note: anyone know what movie the subject came from?

Congrats on the new job. I wish I worked 8 hours a day. I work 12.2 hours a day and some weeks over 85 hours. Been doing that for about 18 years now.

You, sir, are one crazy neanderthal.




Is "Wow, neato gang" from a Will Ferrell movie? Anchorman?
