Soon after his SPM exam, Jovial said he wanted to "chill and relax" for a short stint, he went travel a bit with his friends, then rested for a few days at home.
So when I casually asked him if he wanted to work part time, may be as a waiter or shop assistant like many of his friends, he said no. After hearing this, I thought he just wanted to continue to "chill and relax" until his result comes out.
Lo and behold, one day, he asked me if he could work as a car mechanic in my friend's workshop, I was stunned, I told him if he worked as a waiter, probably he could get some income like 900 to 1200 ringgit per month but he said that job would not let him learn some life skill.
Now he is into his third week working as a car mechanic, getting himself dirty, going under the car body, wrenching off the tires, changing lubricants, getting some scolding from my friends, learning to deal with "difficult" customers.
When I was asked by my friends what Jovial was working as he waits for his result, I told them "foreman", they said, my said was "different"..
P/S : Indeed he is different..
