Finally found a new job and things were going great installing misc metals and welding, the foreman asked if I could fit a few things together,,,of course I can. Then I was a fitter "no more welding for me".
Found a few problems with prints including design errors, owner asks can you do better,,,,,mouth was in gear before the brain and I said yes. So I was asked to detail misc metals for two schools, all the detailers were swamped and could take on no more work.
Started detailing at night and fitting during the day, while dropping off a set of prints I was asked how long it would take to make a particular type of roof ladder, my answer was 3 days and $1200 dollars.
So as of last week I am no longer allowed on the shop floor just the office for me doing take-offs for all tenders that come through the door and detailing structural and misc metals when we get them.
The worst part of it all is I miss welding, I may soon be joining the ranks of the hobby welder just so I can get a bead or two in every day. But I did learn a valuable lesson- If you like what you are doing keep your mouth shut or you may get promoted into a position where you don't get to do what you like most "Weld"
