I am a Log Truck driver and my truck is parked behind my garage and has been for 6 weeks now! The last time I had to fill for unemployment was almost 16 years ago! A guy doesn't have much to look forward to when listening to (O B A M A) !!!!!!!!!!!!! which stands for (O)ne (B)ig (A)ss (M)ess (A)merica

master-tech at pep boys. still working for now ( knock on wood ) but things dont look good, getting rough to make a living around here, no one wants to spend any money, and cars are the last thing they want to spend it on right now.. and was just told the other day and again at hybrid class that i went to today, that if they dont turn a profit by the end of the year we may be no more.. share holders have spoken, this could be the end..
