I went into the local lawnmower repair shop 2 weeks ago and asked if they had any job openings. They said yes and said they would give me a call in a week or two. They called today around 6 and said to come by saturday and we will talk about hours and wages. I am so happy right now its driving me crazy.

Congrats on the job. Do they specialize in a certain brand or are they generic? Good way to learn more about your hobby/affliction. LOL

Generic can be good. At least you will learn about all brands. And I bet most of it will be tune ups/minor repairs. Lots of experience to be had.

Fantastic!!! :dancingbanana:
You will get experience like no other place and know more about your hobby.
Not to mention the employee discount for parts.
