Finishing high school in may 1980 the future didnt look good city employment was wanning and jobs were hard to get ie when you had no skills manual or otherwise.. It took until 1985 i took a job as a security guard. Paid shit $4/hr and hrs varried as did getting a right paycheque. The job lasted till oct 1986 for misconduct. No a proud moment i didnt take job serious but who takes a $4 minimum wage job serious??But i was able to sttrnd my first elton john concert :( In 1987 took another secuirty job for $6/hr it last two shifts.. Later thst yr took a job as a taxi driver it lasted one shift. Too much pressure and stress took its toll.
Same year i started a oart time ad mail job with the post office it paid $6.50 hr plus more per different flyer this job lasted 7 yrs until i had a seizure on the job.. Could not drive for 12 mths at drs request. By the time that was lifted i had no feeling to go back . 1989 was a sad time my grandmother in scotland was dying of cancer. My mom went home first followed by myself and my bros gf paud his way over a few days after me
This was early december too close to xmas so it was tough but i did get to talk to her a couole of times before she passed. I was staying at my cousins and her husbands place for the 10 days. One morning the phone rung and i knew before it was answered grandma had passed. I was there for the arangements which was helpful as i had to leave before the funeral :( one of the posititves from the trip i feel in love with a scottish celtic rock band an became a fan bought as many cassettes as i could before flying home two days later. I hsf just started playing in a local dart league just prior to leaving and went back to that and my admail job. That was the end of the 80s not a great decade. Sigh
