When one (such as I) is in the working class...one can normally take lunch at anytime one pleases...provided it's not one hour before "the bell rings." That's not looked upon as too kosher.

So vwhobo...you mentioned in another thread about having several businesses. Care to share your ventures? I'm interested in knowing just how much you know... (areas of expertise)

I've mentioned some of them before, but a quick recap may be in order. Three independent full service auto repair centers, one with a parts store, no tires. Towing service, three rollbacks. Ten small residential rental properties. And my young but growing mobile service that I asked for input on. Plus other odds and ends that I get my fingers into, for instance just this weekend I bought 14 wholesale cars for resale. And I'm supposed to be on vacation. Don't tell my wife.

I thought there might be something in between the automotive area (not including "landlord.")

How's the mobile service going along?

Well I decided that it would be a hassle dealing with civilians on a daily basis, alot of people have unrealistic expectations when they hear the term "diagnostic service". So I targeted all of the podunk shops around here offering to roll in, give them a full scan, datastream, codes and advice. Once they found out that with some correct info they can fix a car faster than shooting in the dark replacing parts it really took off.

As long as they don't learn to read (no shit) and they don't want to invest in the equipment and training I'll let them pay me $45 a pop ($40 per additional car per visit). It saves them time and money and I've done as many as 17 in one day, 11 is about average.

So the short answer to your question is pretty good.

No I gave up my location once before and I'm still sorry to this day. A bad experience like that makes you think it might happen again. Suffice it to say my Redneck Hell is south of the Mason-Dixon line and east of the Mississippi. Please don't take offense.
