Yesterday, I started an apprenticeship to be a agriculural and industrial diesel mechanic.
My first ten minutes they had me driving an eightfoot tall industrial forklift, talk about panic.
It amazes me the responsibility left to people.
My last job was making pizzas now I'm driving equipment that could kill, seems evil.
What responsibility should I hold?
They seem to expect so much, and I try to be bold.
Pulling 8000 pounds of equipment, I recieve hostility for my lack ability, seems cold.
The pressure placed on my shoulders, the monetary risk if a fail and cause damage.
Machines coated in cow shit, this job has so much baggage.
We're parts in a machine, cogs to the mechanic.
