Finally going HOME!!!
Well as some know I spent last summer (3 months) and this summer 4 months straight) working in northern Manitoba, the town I am in has the highest violent crime rate in Canada (population 15,000) it has many natives straight from the reserve and many alcohol problems. I work as a Heavy duty Mechanic apprentice (level 3) in a mine 3600 feet under ground. Well my last shift of this work term is Tuesday!!!!!! I was offered to stay full time a few weeks ago but turned it down, there is way too much work in the mining Industry in Northern Ontario to stay in this shit hole. I will be leaving Thompson, Mb at 3 am on Wednesday and driving 14 hours +1 hour time difference, so 15 hours to Thunder Bay, Ontario. Than 10 hours from there back home on Thursday!!! I have a line on another job underground in Sudbury, 1 of many thousands that are opening up in the next few years, working on the same stuff, same schedule (5 days on 5 off) but 10.5 hour shifts instead of 11.5's!! Man I cant wait to be back home!!! Wont be on here for probably close to a week

Based on where you work, I'm guessing this is what you call a 'Mini' screwdriver.
