The truck is just small enough where we don't need a CDL, so I'm assuming we're not as regulated as they are.

LOL, fine.

I work for a United Site Services. Portable toilets. We service them [clean them]. My truck has a massive tank on it, with a gigantic hose and a pump that I turn on, stick the metal tube in the toilet and it sucks everything out. I change the paper, add more water and some smelly chemical and I'm done. Whole process takes about 5 minutes.

It's just, most people can't take that. You may say you can, but wait until you get into one when It's 100 degrees out and it hasn't been serviced in a week. There's shit and blood and everything you can imagine in there. Diapers, needles, hair. The works.

This company goes through so many guys It's not even funny. 100's of people a year. They get to the toilet and just can't take it. They quit after a day or two.

Me? I don't give a f*ck. Not when I see my paycheck at the end of the week. And like I said, It's mostly driving.

That amount is after all the deductions and things I pay for. So net. But anything I work over 40 hours is time-and-a-half, anything that's overtime on a holiday is double pay. So it adds up quick.

Work as a tutor/teacher assistant.

Was also working part time in radio, though I recently quit.

And that someone gets paid a ridiculous amount. People driving by laughing at me and feeling sorry for me. I love it. They'd shoot themselves if they knew how much I was making.

Those guys make good money. Nothing wrong with that kind of work at all.

And a lot of those trucks come with lifting systems now so that you don't even actually have to pick up the barrels and dump them. You pull or roll the barrel onto the lift and it hooks onto it and lifts it into the truck for you.

It's just basically, who can stand to be around trash?

I can imagine. I'll take my 36K+ a year in net pay with my modest living. Considering I never went to college.

nice. I knew a guy who amassed a fortune with a portajohn company. Ended up having high-end models with satelite tv and mahogany paneling for uppity ups.

and, having lived on projects where 20+ of us had 4 of those for a week, I can tell you that you have the easy part of the job. the bad part is that hungover dump on the day before they are scheduled for their weekly cleaning.

also, you should watch this movie. I can kinda picture you as the main character and it is an excellent movie.
