Default First Job!!!

hey guys!!! i just went into a local computer store and got my first job

this isnt your average computer store either, we are microsoft certified and we are a certified testing business, meaning if nvidia comes out with new cards to test, we get them... we get beta's for games and everything!!! IM SOO HAPPY

we have a gaming room, where the public can come in and take classes on various software or just play games, the main centerpiece of that room is a gaming pc with a 50" widescreen sceptre LCD monitor, the other computers all have matching 24" sceptre's, amd dual core and 8 series graphics cards, i cant wait to start working... seriously

oh, and on sunday's everybody comes in, while the store is closed off the clock, and we play games against each other and bring food!! its such a nice place!!

im not sure of my pay yet, but my hours seem extremely flexible, ill know the technical details next tuesday...

ya man, haha i kinda noticed, i played COH on the sceptre's, and it didnt look very good, i'd prefer my crt over that thing, but hey, the public is going to use them, so i wont be on them much... i think the shock and awe of seeing the 50" and all the pc's around the wall is enough... haha, ill take some pictures eventually, i dont think we have a website, so im not sure if ill be doing that or not, we'll just have to see

Wow that sounds amazing, well done
I'd love a free job like that, that doesn't mind a few fun things.
Good luck

Damn I'm jealous, I was looking for a retail based job but decided it'd be better to focus on music for the time being and then get a job after we finish recording - to finally get my new PC, a nice one.
