    I just got a new job today.. making eye glasses at an eyeglass place called Eye-mart. All I have to do is go tommorow, fill out the paperwork, and take the drug test and then it is mine. I officially quit Target today. I let them know after tonight I wouldn't be back. Felt really good when I got the job. I literally was dancing around with "I'm walking on Sunshine" playing in my head after I got off the phone when the guy called me back. It pays better than Target($1 more an hour), has same (if I counted right) the same hours as Target but it would be day shifts. Opens at 9am closes at 7pm. Plus I can run to White Castle for lunches. :)  The job should be a cakewalk compared to Target.. I'd be standing 8 hours a day, but no heavy lifting.

    I worked at Lenscrafters as a lab tech or whatever. I made glasses in about a hour everyday. It paid well, even got bonuses for just making glasses. If you made glasses in under an hour all the lab guys would split like a couple bucks for each pair of glasses. Now usually there was 2-4 people in the labs, but we were making quite a few pairs of glasses an hour maybe 15 -30 pairs, so after awhile it would add up. Instead of making the $9-10 an hour, it was close to $14. But we were also the best lab in the region too.

    I think we do something like that too. Sounds like they do that at the end of the month and it gets split up. Guy said it can be anywhere from $40 to a couple hundred bucks a month.
