If i were you i'd work at the cheese plant, better hours, better pay, less mileage. Makes sense
Don't be hatin' on student loans. I'm going to have to take out about $750,000 in them.

wow well today i had one of the worst day's i've ever had... i had about 2 hours left of my shift and a call drops in... it lasted 1 hour and 22 mins... worst call of my life... i got so stressed out that i had to sit there and breathe for like 5 mins to try and cool off after i punched out i seriously felt like ripping my hair out... i really think the cheese company will be a better job because a lot less stress to have to deal with... as soon as i saw a huge opening on the freeway i punched it and got up to 115... usually if i go that fast i'll get my heart pounding and holding on and get a rush but nope... i just went.. wanted to go a lot faster but was closing in on the cars pretty fast... grr just worst work day of my life... a lot of it has to do with my personal life because i'm stressing out a lot right now.. =(
they way i figure it, i'll have hours i like for like 6 months out of the year compared to maybe a day or 2 here or there.... like once every 5-6 months.. =\ plus a lot better pay and all that.. aka having to work for less time while still being able to buy stuff i want along the way of saving up...

wow man that stinks. Call in sick for a day and just relax, talk a walk some place and cool down. I like to do that when things are out of hand. I go to some woods near me and just walk the paths and think.

I would take either job really... I work as a janitor on the summer mainenance crew now. It'd kind of fun. I am one of 8 students they hire every summer to do all the summer work. A lot goes on at the schools during summer...

Take a student loan, and go through the police academy. a 10k loan will not be a problem to pay back. Saving up 10k ahead of time is just plain stupid and ignorant. Get the loan and do it now. My nieghbor makes about 100k a year. Police officer... Actually, he is Police Chief in this little town. Compare that to your 16 an hour... Work 3 years as a cheese factory guy, make 30k a year. Or.... take out a loan, 10k, get your job as a police officer, make 60k a year for 3 years... you have 90k more then you would have working at the cheese factory. Pay your loan back, you still have 75-80k more...
Just think logically. If you can be smart, credit is a wonderful thing. Credit is only bad in the hands of an American Idiot(75% of America).

Thank you. At least someone else besides me realizes this.

yeah but the thing is though about it is right now there isn't any police officer jobs AT ALL the police academy is currently closed because no one is hiring so there's no point in having it open... that's why i would rather just save up in the mean time until job's become available, now do you understand where i'm coming from? only thing i could do is go to college for some law classes but that would suck.. lol
