One of the most surprising conversations I ever had with an 18 yr old boy
I looked at him and said “What kind of work would you want to do at one of my dealerships?” he said “I want to sell cars, I want to be a sales man I hear you don’t need a degree and if you are willing to work long and hard hours you can make good money”
I nodded and said “Yes you can” I then said “Now son you got some balls coming over here telling me you got my daughter pregnant when you don’t even love her and then asking for a job”
He then said “I figured this was my best option of finding a job to make enough money to support my kid” I said “I want you to be at my dealership tomorrow in your sundays best at 8 AM, do you understand?” He said “Yes sir” I said “Now go, I’ll see you tomorrow”
That was a good 10 years ago he’s now a store manager and one of the best hires I ever made. He is also an awesome father of 2 now (he met and married another woman and had a child with her) he shares custody with my daughter.
