I worked in the Xmas light industry before. Made me loathe the lights.

And I made scented candles as one of my first jobs, which I still can't stand.

Just carrying on the Christmas theme.

I built these displays in a sweat shop.






Putting the displays together is worse than any job I've ever had. 7 bucks an hour and they require you to work 60 hour weeks minimum.

At least you got paid. Elves work twice as many hours and don't get paid. Santa won't be happy with your complaining.

Our property is 1/4 mile off the road. The bus sits in a 40'X100' barn when I'm not working on it, but nobody would even notice if I left it up by the house closer to the shop.

We moved here because he don't like nasty neighbors, and the plan seems to be working out for us!

I'm lucky that I live in the country and the neighbor across the road and her daughter like watching the progress on my bus. The only bad comment they made was that they could smell the primer I sprayed it with. They are down wind. But they said it was ok because it was only that one day and blew right through.
