Wishing it that way don't make it so .

My way of handling stress was , open my own business , get rid
of a couple sources of stress and replace it with a whole new kind
of stress.

either way you gotta deal with it.

It's best to let the dumb stuff roll off your shoulder and
not try to carry it.
I really do have that kind of job. I make my own schedule and don't have to justify myself. If I need something I get it. I work at the largest entertainment park in Myrtle Beach so it's also a lot of fun dealing with the tourists. It is very hectic cause I am responsible for the entire parks electrical system. But we have a small team that work together with no politics and no BS, we all help each other. Our bosses and park managers are the best people ever. There are five of us that work maintenance and we are tight. any one else is outcast and shunned if they don't pick up the ball. I stepped in it when I got this job, it was a circumstance to fix someone's screw up. they wanted me there all the time and as a result all electrical subs were let go because of no show, poor work, etc. I know it sounds a bit like i'm bragging, but I love my job and actually look forward to each day. Always something new. I have everything I need in stock. We do BBQ's once a month also, so yes there is a place that exists like that. We don't wear silver however and we don't hold hands. We are respected and treated very well for the job we do.
