Just Started out My New Job

I have just now started my new job. I am working in the office at a body shop right now. Of course that means that a big part of my job is dealing with how you take care of car accident claims. Of course we have a big shop with a half dozen repair bays and it is a whole lot of chaos going on out there during the day. You have to figure out what the price of the repair job is going to be and how much work it is going to take to do it. Of course a lot of the time you can not really hope to get a job done for a practical price. Some of the time the vehicle just is not worth trying to fix. You just have to figure out whether or not you can drive the car with whatever damage it has and live with it,

Of course my job is pretty easy, but you have to deal with a bunch of stressed out people. Of course they are wanting their cars fixed and they want to get it done with some money left over. A lot of the time they see that big insurance check and they have to figure out some other use for the money, before they get the car fixed up. Of course most people need to have their cars and a lot of people treat their cars like they were there children. It is not like you can talk rationally to some people about things that they take so seriously. It is a real pain when you get someone who is really determined to be upset about things. A lot of the time they are working the angle, trying to get us to cut the price down.
