if your dad owns the company, get him to take you on part time as an apprentice. You can still go to college and get qualified at the same time.

Basic swearing, telephone call avoidance, over estimates in billing, and football violence in your private life are all basics. Once perfected, you can move on up to how to try and seduce the customers wife, using unpleasant sexualised language in front of children, and all round ineptness. Lol

Better speak to your dad then - that would be the first step. If he says it is OK, then He can arrange for you to be trained. Alternatively, his heart may be set on you going to dancing school and become the ballet star he never was. Good luck.

learn to ask people to pay in advance and not be concerned if you don't ever bother coming back, learn to charge a mint for a tiny 5 minute job, learn to tell people there is an enormous problem although there is none in reality so you can charge them lots for no work and leave your day's rubbish in elderly lady's...

If you feel so strongly about it, talk seriously to your dad, if he doesnt listen, talk to your mum and get her to have a word with him, you will need reasonable school grades, but not as many as to be a banker, your dad wants you to have a better life than him, that's all, we all want the best for our kids, if dad...
