What other jobs have you done besides flooring? I washed dishes in a restaurant, worked in a laundry, pumped gas, welded in a factory, spray-painted in a factory, Toyota Certified mechanic, poured concrete, carpenter, tire shop, produce manager in a grocery store, warehouse parts picker. Some of these I did while also doing flooring when things were slow. I even worked three days at Walmart.:D

I worked delivering mattresses and bedroom furniture, worked in an automotive machine shop, was the purchasing agent at a auto parts house, pulled orders at Vons Grocery Co, drove a forklift at Vons loading trucks, then started my career using the saying, "all codes, all roads" at the local 5-0 business. Also was a Vet Tech for an equine veterinarian and had my own handyman business for about 15 years.

I was a gas jockey in a gas stations plus grease monkey. Went in Navy was an aircraft mechanic, worked for Green Giant canning company pitching pea vines, also in a tree nursury hoeing weeds out of the trees. I also worked in a furniture store delivering furniture and appliances along with the flooring stuff. I also worked for a construction company putting flare ends on culverts during road construction. Worked in a butcher shop with my parents. Did hay baling in the summer months for farmers. Pitched a lot of sh-manure also for farmers cleqning barns.
Must be more, looks like I couldn't hold a job doesn't it. But have hired out since I was 12 to buy my school clothes and such.

I need your help since you said you worked for mattress store. I have planned to buy mattress for my extended room. I have put quite a lot of research into finding the best mattress for my rooms. I hope you can definitely help find which one suits best our body. I found an article ( http://www.surplusfurniture.com/blog/the-best-way-to-select-a-new-mattress-set-2/)which says buying mattresses online is not a good option. They have to be tested floor models in store. Need your guidance on type of mattress to choose and the best brand to go for.
