Working a Part Time Job

I have been looking for a full time job since I got out of high school, but so far it is not going that well. I was working part time for a guy who does tree removal in Asheville NC. Of course I have no idea how to do the actual tree removal, but I am paying attention. You have to do that because there is heavy stuff falling from the tops of those trees. You could easily get killed by a big chunk of wood falling from forty or fifty feet in the air. I am down there to clean up after the guy in the tree top. His name is Will and he is pretty good at this stuff. What you do is to start out by piling up a bunch of small limbs and that is the target that Will aims at when he cuts off a piece of the tree. You do not want to do a lot of damage to the person’s yard and when these pieces of firewood fall from a good height they can make a big dent in the ground. That is especially true if one of the edges strikes first. I have to pay close attention to what Will is doing and I have to be sure he is not going to drop one of these big chunks of wood on top of me. That would be really bad for me obviously. I get a really good work out doing this, but it is a hard job. We have a pick up truck which is full of the stuff that we need to do the job and we pull this large high walled trailer. In fact you can not hardly load a whole tree of any size on it, because of all of the water in green wood.
