Hi Paul I was fired from meineke the manager was a felon on parole he said I didn't find enough wrong in 27 point oil change inspection that's ok I didn't really want to be around a parts changer anyway I watched him tell a lady with a 02 vw Passat her locks were actuating iraddicly I took a look at that diagram on prodemand both wires went to door module and it even showed a waveform which showed it was a pull down circuit I tried to come at him in a humble way since he had many years of dealership and was proud he learned everything hands on whatever that meant I watched him tell that lady that he did not have the right scan tool and that she needed to go to the STEALERSHIP wtf I tried coming to him humbly to try and teach him how to look at that circuit but that wasn't happening I appreciate you Paul I am much farther than I was five years ago I still need to try the ASE tests I feel ready in a way but I don't feel ready in way if that makes sense I will continue to try and improve as a tech I can say 7outof-10 techs do not brace the electrical side and it shows in thier limited capacity

Thank you Paul it's been a long road and as much video and book instructions I have committed myself too I am slowly getting better as a technician and I will not tolerate unethical approaches , you would not believe the negative and unethical way he ran me and the business but anyway we will look to better positions and shops I was shot down by our local Chrysler dealership too which is fine my stuff is pretty unimpressive as far as certs experience and actual time in a repair shop I knew when I recommitted to the trade it would be an uphill battle there may be some knowledge there I just have to keep trying to put it to together becuase of legal problems incurred when I was homeless it drove a big part of my life into what was basically a distraction from my wanna be professional life and advancement but i may get to the end of this journey and never end up where I really want to be but I'm not gonna be a parts changer and I will maintain my integrity and hold on to my dream of being a good tech and have a real ability to fix equipment NORTHERN BOXER TECHNOLOGIES and KUSHDAKA RACING (tm) and I am interviewing for janitor position today I have exuasted my efforts to get into a good shop (my resume is really unimpressive) I may have to wait till I have my own
