    I don't know when that question became all right to ask some stranger. But I think it's a little personal and 1 should get to know someone before asking what they do.

    just my two cents.
    You seem like you're real fun at parties...

    Web programming. I don't say web development because web developers use Photoshop and other layout tools, but don't typically mess with database design and server side programming, which is mostly the stuff I do. I just write code.

    My current job if for a company that collects and processes market research and customer survey data for big clients like Sprint, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, etc. I get to work from home whenever I like, so its a pretty sweet gig. All the programming I do for them is javascript and runs on the client side, but its still not design oriented, and has looks of server data connections I need to manage.

    I under stand what your saying. But we as people have a lot to discuss before we have to get personal.
    All I am saying is get to know someone before you ask what they do for a living.
    in the 50's that was like asking political views

    I hear and respect what you're saying. I'm guessing I may be more open (and possibly naive?) to strangers.

    And on that 50's note; I heard a good handful of stories about those times from my grandmother. She was an athiest, single mother of two working at a biochemical lab in New Jersey.

    On and off since about forever. They do it in Chuacher. We use (acestorial) job titles as last names. What is considered personal vs private business varies greatly in different times and places.

    Yeah and I am more closed off with only a handful of friends I have known since grade school. no facebook or myspace.

    Again these are just my opinion and like assholes, everbody is entitled to there's.

    When someone asks me what I do to soon. I look them square in the eyeball and say "I sell crack" if they still hang around eventually I tell them the truth.

    I can see how it would be regenanl

    I don't understand that at all... Never thought of your job to be a private thing, unless you're a hooker or dealer or something similar...

    Oh and I weld, current job has me building locomotives.

    Beautiful work. Man, what an imagination you must have to conceive and an ability to lay down paint work like this. Do your dreams hurt?

    Default What does everybody do for a living?

    So I was going to school to finish up becoming a registered nurse so I could continue on to a physician assistant program, that was until the nursing orientation. I was told I could only work 8 hours a week while in school. I don't know but even with my VA assistance there's no way I can support my family through the 22 month program. So now what? College drop out again? FML, gotta change shit up again. Good thing is I picked up a consulting job for a Canadian company that's owned by an in-law to my wife's family. They're looking to locate a second manufacturing facility state side. I'm pretty much doing all the leg work stateside as far as locating a facility, hiring a lawyer to make sure stuff is all legal, insurance, benefits, material contracts, hauling contracts etc. etc. Supposedly once stuff is up and running I've got the job of plant manager or foreman, bad thing is the best deals on industrial spaces big enough for the factory are not only too far to commute to but in places I'm not sure I want to relocate to. (St. George Utah, BFE Nevada-Arizona) Hopefully this place I'm checking on locally today pans out.

    Assuming you have a wife does she work man? I mean I know its easier said than done but its only 22months, that is the trade off 22 months of struggle not equals a life time of better pay after. Im using VA benifits myself because my pop died active duty and I know its tough but its do able. but then again i dont have kids or a house payment. how ever it works man I wish you the best.

    being a book keeper pays the bills.

    i also have a little side gig building bicycle frames, making tables, making racks, basic fabrication stuff. I've also been known to swing a hammer, axe, or dig ditches and any home reno stuff from bathrooms to basements.

    i totally get the whole not wanting to tell people what you do for work, sometimes its more complicated. also, if i tell people "yeah, im a bookkeeper" initial reaction is wtf? but if I say I am a contractor/fabricator most people are like "oh, cool what do you make" one thing pays the bills, but the other thing is what I do.

    Yeah I'm married, and she works but her pay barely covers her car payment, insurance and daycare for the kid, plus her roller derby stuff. I just spent the last 10 months knocking out my prerequisites for the RN program and it ate up pretty much everything I had set aside. We had a lot of unforeseen expenditures (surgery, twin cam tensioner curse, sick kid etc.) We've got a kid, a mortgage and now some extra bills to pay down, it's just not in the cards. Both my wife and I may go to work for the company and if that happens we'll be in really good shape. I should be able to go back to school in a year or so after that just using grants so I can save my VA stuff for the PA program. It just seems like 2 steps forward and 3 steps back right now. I'm even questioning my degree choice, even though I was a combat trauma Corpsman I have a very strong electrical engineering background. I may see if I can work it into something in the biomed field.

    I have a side gig of selling authentic vintage helmets and relining them, etc. But by day whenever I am not wearing my superhero cape, I am in the Divorce/Family Law legal field.
