Ever had a week of misfortune within your life that you don't see why it has happened? You ask why you deserve the misfortune within your life and come up with a blank answer to why you deserve it? Well don't think about it as misfortune, think about it as a sign for something better to come along. My story goes like this... 2 Friday's ago I started my job working with a company called Pettit doing brick masonry. Of course I started as just a laborer and the work isn't that hard but its hard, I won't lie to you about that. When I came up for the job someone said I was going to make $10-11 an hour being a laborer. That was dead wrong, I was out there in the hot sun working my ass off for 8 hours a day for $8 an hour (no taxes) which came out to $64 a day but instead of them splitting taxes with you, you would have to pay 15% instead of 7.5% which ended up meaning you had to hold on to 25% of every check for the government. Well 2 days ago my "foreman" which is a piece of shit started giving me shit for helping take down scaffolding instead of scrubbing a wall with a brick. 2 hours into the day I got fired and told to go home. So today I got my final check from the company which was slack $30 which extremely pissed me off. Well just a little bit ago I headed to another school in which they are building in my area and got directed to another brick masonry company. As soon as I told em I worked over there they said that company had a bunch of fuck ups and I was in pretty much automatically. He gave me a start of $9/hour and 45 hours a week with taxes taken out so I only have to pay 7.5% at the end of the year. End of story my buddy who didn't stand up for himself and let the boss bitch at his ass all day is making $10 an hour and every hour since he has no taxes out has to pay $1.50. Since I stood up for myself and got fired I am making $9 an hour with taxes taken out of $0.67 per hour. At the end of this we will be making about the same but I won't be getting bitched at and we end the week with a $5 difference with our checks and I get cash back at the end of the year and he doesn't since he has to give to the government. So the moral of this story everything happens for a reason.
