What is your REAL job?

I'm Stephanie and my mother thinks I play the piano at the local cat house :black_eyed:

Actually I own and operate a small trucking company based in Central Kentucky. Some days I feel like I manage a daycare facility with the drivers... If you want to go broke quickly... Buy a Tractor/Trailer... Want to go broke faster buy multiple!

I prefer older equipment, especially with recent and upcoming changes to the laws. More reliable, allows us to focus on customer service.

Slow, low and dirty.
I did the military thing (Air Force and Air National Guard) for 33 years full and part time (Aerial Photo Intel, Inflight Refueling and a couple years in the command group), then VA Benefits for 16 months. Currently work as an Assistant Inspector General, probably all I need to say about that.

I am self employed I repair and paint the plastic bumpers on vehicles. I basically have a paint shop and body shop on wheels. I am totally mobile and go to dealerships and peoples homes, if there are breaks plastic weld them back together, if they are pushed in I heat up the plastic and push it back to shape then fill prime and paint. I mix all my paint colors right in my van cost to the customer is usually about 1/3 to 1/2 of a body shop 2-3 hours I am usually done so there vehicle is not laid up for days at a shop.

On the side I train Reigning horses and buy and sell a few and show reigning and working cow horse classes.

I spent several years operating reactors on nuclear submarines. I spent the last 20 years as a semiconductor technician. In a few years I hope to either teach high school, or work the counter at an auto parts store. I'm tired of the rat race in the tech sector, and I hope to get my soul back soon from my techno-overlords.
Now that im properly hired I work as a glass blower in making glass thermometers for industry, labs, food stuff and the such. Im currently learning because it is quite complicated but I get to play with fun stuff like mercury and dry ice!
I'm a Computer Engineer who works at a small family-owned business. I write firmware for control systems that run HVAC systems in large buildings such as hospitals, schools, and the World Trade Center.

I realized while I've read the posts here for a long time, I haven't chimed in on this thread yet...

So I've worked in a few careers - some for just a year or two, some for a decade or more;
- Wild Game Butcher (deer, elk, antelope, etc)
- Ranch Hand (fence repair, irrigation maintenance, baling, rough carpentry, basic cattle rustling, etc)
- Janitor / Facilities & Grounds Maintenance
- AutoCAD Draftsman for residential and light commercial work (Blockbuster Video and Outback Steakhouse contracts)
- Motorcycle Maintenance Tech / Shop Monkey
- Software Programmer (AutoLISP extensions for AutoCAD, eCommerce websites, database administrator, web based financial trading systems, etc.)
- Software Project Manager (multiple companies)
- Technology Investment Decision Analysis & Program Management for the g'ubmint

Someday I'll figure out what I want to do when I grow up. But for now I'm having fun, learning, and keeping the mortgage paid :)
Been lurking on this forum for a while, watching balsa build threads... truly amazing stuff, and I hope to be a contributor in the future.

Current profession: Software analyst / developer for a large firm writing financial software.
I hold a degree in Geology, and have worn many hats in life: laborer, factory worker, food service, grocery clerk, auto repair and self-taught in many others... there's not a heck of a whole lot I can't do...

except build and fly planes.... yet... which is why I'm here! (y)
