    Cool New job!!

    Well Iv'e been off work now for 3 weeks with a wrecked back after slipping a disc by bending down to cut a piece of wood and can't afford to not get any pay any longer. I ruined my back a year and a half ago after an accident where i was parked in a layby on the A42 in my lorry and an artic decided that i would be perfect to help him stop quickly. Loads of probs since but iv'e pulled through. Well i came to the conclusion that driving wasn't gonna help my back anymore and long distances every day were gonna be really uncomfortable so a change of carreer was in order. I'm currently training for an mcse but thats gonna take a whileso in the meantime as of wednesday a sales executive at arnold clarke in west bromwich. Some of you may now hate me for going there but hey. So if anyones after a new car let me know. Moneys s**t for a couple of months whilst training but it's more than i'm getting now. And I'm looking forward to a change after 10 years on the road.

    Driving does give you a bad back, thats very true..

    The secret is once an hour change the positionn of the seat very slightly so your back doesnt get too used to a set position...

    I do this and have no problmes with my back at all..

    Good Luck with the new job mate

    Cheers all. I did get compensation for the injuries i'm just waiting for my 20 days loss of earnings. The enjoyment of driving has faded off now and at times i'm even fed up driving my car I think it's down to the long hours it can be a very lonely job at times. If I find I made the wrong decision the licence is always gonna be there.
