    I'm slingin' parts for Harry.

    So about a month and a half ago, I put in a job application at a local VW dealer for a parts job. I talked to the ASM for a few minutes, but the Service Manager was out of town for the week. I called back the next week, and the spot had been filled.

    Fast forward to yesterday, and my phone rang. It was the SM from Faulkner-Ciocca Volkswagen, and they had a few spots opening because they're starting a new system in their parts department. They wanted to know if I was still interested. Of course I was. So today at 1000, I met with the SM, Ivon, and at 1008, I walked out of his office with a new job.

    The position is basically a mix of lot attendant and parts runner. The pay isn't great, but it's more than what I make at Best Buy. But on the plus side I'll get to spend all day around cars, drive brand new cars, help out in the shop, and basically get some good experience.

    I start Monday.

    Awesome. I'm glad for you my friend. Have some kickass quality time working there. Now that you're inside, time for you to put pressure so we can have the new Polo in NA.
