    Can I use your lift, without asking for pay, and not using the title of employee? If so, sign me up.

    In a way I wish I didn't find the career field I'm in, so that I could work there. Good luck on finding a match!

    The standing for long periods and able to lift 75lbs excluded me. Hopefully you can find solid team members.

    I realise 75lbs might be a bit much. Even 50lbs would be acceptable. Standing for long periods though is kinda part of the role though. Hard to sit down and fix cars

    I can write quotes, manage social media accounts, fly a drone, shoot video, customize content management systems, design stuff, take photos, and pick my nose without people catching me in the act. I only need $50k per year. Do you need someone to replace you at the shop?

    So it seems your currency denomination was a little off. It appears you can do 25% of what we need, so that would work out for 25% of pay. Let me know!

    Yes, I need someone to replace my position in the office. Large shoe size and all that. Plus, shop foreman is having a baby next week...

    I think you're undervaluing my nose picking.
