I made 55 dollars in tips tonight..

delivering food in my Ford truck. +6/hr * about 5 hours.

Whats everyone here do for cash?

I work for my dad's lanscaping and lawncare business during the summer, help salt/plow snow in the winter and just got a job delivering food, which is soley for making my truck how i want it.

landscaping/snow stuff is for insurance, upkeep, college.. stuff i have to pay for.

Any money i get from this new delivery job is going straight into my truck! It'll be a monster mud bogger in no time with this kinda cash flow! haha.

I work at a restaruant, I'm a waiter, last sunday I made $105 in cash tips, not counting credit card tips or my change, working from 7-2, plus the 4.35 an hour. At the shop this week, I usually work on commission, so I ended up with $250 this week, which is about $50 bucks a day.

Hmmm... I love cash!

Well I'm still in high school, but I get out at 9 and go to work. I'm a residential and commercial electrician during the week. In the evenings I help my dad do remodels and build barns and houses and what not. On the weekends if I'm not working at the places mentioned above, I normally have a car or truck in the garage getting repaired.

I make 9.50 an hour as an electrician, 12 an hour workin for my Dad, and most of the time I work on cars for fun. Sometimes I'll get 40 bucks for a full tune up, but normally I just make them supply the parts, and I do it for fun!

I also farm. I take care of 2 of the local farms around here, mostly just doing hay. I also take care of about 400 acres of beans, wheat and corn. It's a busy life!

I make $55 a month filing stock for grampa (EASY money)

I teach violin for an hour a day after school to elementary kids for $9 a day.
I also play gigs (violin) for whatever money I can get out of it. I'm playing in the pit orchestra for Beauty and the Beast at a local high school, and they are paying (my high school doesnt pay for me to play with them...)

Summers past I would mow for a quick buck, and in addition to that this summer, i'm going to be helping out at an auto shop. Guy works mostly on restoring old/classic cars. Don't konw what kinda money I'll be looking at there.. but not a ton. just some extra $$$ for ga$.

When I'm home, I do maintenance work at an assisted living facility down the road. I end up doing a lot of painting, but if something comes up, that's what I do.

I haven't found a job here at school yet (haven't tried all that hard, either), but I plan to find one soon.

I used to have a management job as a supervisor for a call center but I lost that job because the company went south.

I've worked construction with my dad in the meantime to pay bills but I'm currently job hunting.

It might not seem like much to some of the older guys with better jobs, but at this age, generally, there's nothing to pay for but gas and insurance (maybe a truck payment) so it adds up pretty quick.

oh, and i made 45 in tips tonight! i love this job.

Desire, dedication, and luck. My neighbor started a company about 4 years ago, and in August of 2004 when I was 16 I joined the crew. There was 4 of us at the time (including Jerry- my neighbor/owner.) We have went through 7 guys since then, who are in their mid 20's to late 30's. Now it is just Jerry and I, because we can't find anyone around here who is worth a damn. No one knows how to work anymore. They just want to complain about the heat in the summertime and the cold in the winter. Me on the other hand, is lucky to not have rung the sweat out of his shirt 4 times in a day in the summer.

From when I started until mid January before I turned 18 finally, I had learned everything I could legally learn (wasnt supposed to work with anything that was live). The day I turned 18, I was sent out on a service call to change out a 400 amp service at an old farm house. I had to climb the pole outside since it was an overhead service, and cut the wires loose up top. Scared me at first, but I knew I had to do it, or else I wouldnt advance any further from where I was at.

If theres anyone around who lives in Central Ohio who wants to become my helper this summer and be trained, let me know! As soon as I graduate high school I'll be in my own truck, ready to tackle the world! Anyone want to help me?
