looks like my harvesting days ARE'NT over
    #3165648 - 09/22/04 06:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i cant find a job in my field after recently graduating, and ive been on several interviews lately with little luck....the temp services have been blue-balling me too  :mad2:
I need money and i need it fast!
student loan money? used up.
credit card?maxed.
plasma center? fuck no!
God gave me a sign...
so i was looking through the miscellanous employment section of the local rag, and i found a job today-

immediate employment....picking apples at b******n's family farm! apply in person.

but its up north about 30 minutes so i call the place and ask what time i should show up tomorrow...this old man answers and asks if "i have any apple picking experience"
im holding in the laughter at this point and say no but that ive seen "Cider House Rules"several times ( I think he was too old to realize i was fucking with him)
so he says he'll give me a shot and i should show up at 9 am tomorrow for training!
im assuming i'll get paid by the barrels picked....but hey, cash is king.

so how you like THEM apples!

that's pretty fucked up man...you're not the first person i've heard of graduating college and not even being able to use those college skills and education. good luck plucking apples though. i'm curious about how much the pay is. hell, i'd pick apples...

oh, its really cool dude. you get to use these 'basket pickers' which you reach up into the top of the tree with and... its hella fun, just be careful not to drop to many and bruise them.

and you know a apple harvest only takes a week or two rite? :crazy:

so i go to pick the apples today, what a dissappointment that was.

i get there with a friend (who brings another friend, christ we are starting to act like illegals already) and the old guy "trains" us. he gives us a 15 gallon basket and some extendo gimmick to cut the apples we cant reach with our hands, and shows us how to do it for like ten minutes. and yes, we are three outta five crackers there, the rest are mexicans, and the other two whities are trailer trash housewives...
but anyway, it was windy as hell today and the ladders were pretty ricketty, to be kind. then he tells us the  pay is $1 per barrel picked!!! WTF!

my friend is like "cmon, give us at least $3-4 per basket to make it worth our while, you need people anyways" he wont budge, so we work for like 5 hours till he gets fed up with it, and we leave with $15 each...the best pickers can pick 40 barrels a day!
so thats slave labor....

my feet hurt like a mofo from standing on a 4 inch wide ladder rung for 5 hours, and it wasnt worth the time or gas money it took to get out to the sticks.

oh well, back to stealing car batteries  :wink:
