I work at Chase.... I've been at Chase for 12 years. I'm comfortable at Chase. I get paid decently. I have many vacation hours accrued. But I'm sick of it. I could go to another bank and do sales there, but I could give a shit about doing sales for any bank or any other company. So.... I've been thinking about doing something completely different: small engine repair. I'm kind of savvy in this regard. I was curious if anyone here has made a career out of doing this? I'm thinking about just doing my job at Chase and on the side start doing repairs which Chase actually would require me to get it approved with them first. A manager overheard me talking and informed HR that I might start doing a side job, HR contacted me and told me it's a "no no" to have a side job that hasn't been cleared. She just jumped right into correcting me and telling me I didn't get the necessary pre-approval from HR. I told the HR lady, "You have no idea what you're talking about." Lady, "excuse me?!" Me, "I'm not doing any side job.... I merely mentioned that I was thinking about it." Lady, "Yes! and THAT needs approval!" Me, "It's not my job to explain to you that my considering a side job is not actually the same as my performing a side job." Some more back and forth. She made some insult towards me and I called her a glorified busybody. So anyway.... has anyone made much of a career out of doing this?
