My son came to us in March 2010 saying that he wanted to go to college to become a car mechanic. He was 22 and had a good full time job at the time with the railway. His father and I said that if that's what he wanted to do then we would stand behind him as long a s he found a part time job and paid his way. he left his job in August last year and started college in September 2010. Needless to say he never looked for a job for the first few months and no rent was paid.
Anyway he went around looking for a job at a garage whilst at college but no one would take him as he would have been more expensive than a school leaver. However a garage just down the road asked him to go in to do some voluntary work for a few days a week unpaid. We told him to do it as you never know what it may lead to. He has been going there for a couple of days a week for the last 6 weeks thoroughly enjoying himself. He went in yesterday and they offered him a full time job. He will continue to go to college for 1 day a week but will be working there doing what he wanted to. He is over the moon!
So congratulations Dan. Of course I am over the moon for him cause it means I will have the
house to myself during the day !!!!!!!
Here is the card that I have made him. The image was from clipart. Card and backing papers were from my stash.
Thanks for reading
