Default Internship paying off

As i'm sure you've all heard i'm doing a internship.

And honsetly those 3 hours everyday I spend in that shop is just a blast, sit around joking, playing with PCs, we once even play CS:S on a 7900s SLI which was a blast. And i've helped build a fairly high end PC and got to learn about a lot of handy lil software and stuff. Well I guess I was doing a good job because my boss was talking to some poeple about me and some poeple have heard about me.

I got a offer to work at a laptop repair shop guy said he wants to see how good I am with laptops and he'd train me for 2 or so weeks, i'd build, and repair laptops, install sound systems, repair cell phone etc. He basically is a overall electroic guy said he has plently of business and when i'm ready to call him up

On top of that tell them you do know somthing and aren't a complete moron. if they are cool they'll prob give you a quick basic quiz to see where you are at. Thats what my boss did, I had to name the parts of a MOBO, and install and rebuild a PC, made me take it apart and put it back together again. But heh we were really slow that day.

Yeah, even though you may know your stuff, they might not want someone young working there...Think about it, if I walk into a shop, and ask for a new computer, and a 13 yr old is helping me...I wouldnt be so happy..Also, it all depends on the shop, some are coool, and some arent...Just go and ask to find out for sure.
