Nuther Job

Nuther Job

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

"

Got a nuther job at a warehouse

Kina knew one of the guys

From school, back when

His girlfriend was hot

They were bikers

He was big and he was mean

Pretty sure they were about crime

The place was a false front

The Irishman owned the place

I was driving my mint, rare 67 4x4

Actually my old man’s ride

One of the guys wanted to trade

He had a 60 chevy 4x4 short box

Both vehicles were mint

But mine had been ‘built’

I said no

While he was lookin under it

I ate some of his chicken wings

Crazy, they had no bones!

They belong to the ‘big’ guy

Turned out he didn’t care

Guy turned out to be real decent

Then told us there was work to get done

Place was bombed the next week

About 2AM

I had to look for work again

Your stylized slang describing vehicle features hums like a swarm of locusts. Makes me want to be one of the badass-ride guys, even tho I've never been vehicle-cognizant in my life. Mostly I love how you capture the way it can be between friends of a similar feather. But I'm also catching a shiver over how much your commentary harkens to the state of jobs in the USA these past decades -- jobs disappearing left & right, plus the remaining jobs are "gig" type -- no guaranteed hours, no benefits, etc. It's a b***h and then you die (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
