Handling the Low Points

When I was much younger, my friend got me a job working for his dad. It was blue-collar work, and we specialized in a variety of trades, such as plumbing and electricity. Since these were practical skills to have, I felt fortunate for the opportunity to learn, as well as make some money during college summer breaks. Overall, I enjoyed the job, but I will never forget the day my motivation and determination were put to the ultimate test.

Our company was called by a local kindergarten that was having serious sewage problems. For those of you who are not familiar with working around and with sewage systems, it can be much worse than you probably even imagine. I will try to spare you most of the details, but that week I could have starred on Discovery Channel’s World’s Dirtiest Jobs.
