    Lawyer, my clients would probably be less than enthusiastic knowing that their attorney "plays" with "kid's toys" :)

    Sales associate in retail; I'm that guy that scans your items twice by accident, unloads the truck at 6 in the morning while its pouring rain out, and arranges shelves for hours, only to see them get messed up by little kids (I'm joking, I actually enjoy my job). I used to run a little eBay store, and have done a fair bit of professional landscaping. Seeing as most of the people here are in IT, engineering, government jobs, and programming, I guess I'm on the low end of the totem pole, so-to-speak :)
  • starfire2starfire2 Member Posts: 1,335
    ^ I think us stay at home moms are the low end of the totem pole. We have to rely on our spouses income to get Lego!
  • bor2112bor2112 Member Posts: 321
    @starfire2, no way! You have the most important, rewarding job there is. Maybe you need to rely on your spouse to feed the addiction, but no low end of the totem pole for SAHMs (or Ds).

    My job is to go around and check Internet connections in the apartment buildings in Tokyo. If they have optic fiber, then I report them. If they don't, ( ie, using ADSL or ISDN ) I yank their telephone cords and replace them with a useless copper wire (j/k)

    Seriously, I check to see if the apartments can be switched to OF or not.

    I am a Design + Technology teacher and a self employed textile designer. I teach 11-18 year olds so they generally think I'm a complete saddo when I proudly declare that I love Lego. In my experience the cool ones 'get it' :D

    I notice that there are a lot of very smart sounding people on this forum. Lots of people who obviously know a thing or two about programming, economics, manufacturing, history, etc...

    So what does everyone do for a living? I am just very curious...!

    I am an archaeologist, hence the screen-name "the_real_indy". I did finance for a while, but now I am working on educational software platforms for world history and the social sciences.
    I ALWAYS wanted to be an archaeologist when I was growing up. LOVED dinosaurs etc, still love history especially early Greek and Egyptian. But I am an US Army medic :) also still am a pharmacy technician though I haven't done that since joining the Army.

    @graphite ...We don't break people's legs; it's all business-to-business stuff so it's about not letting companies get too far outside their payment terms and working to address issues that they raise (won't pay because the pricing was wrong, terms are wrong, etc). We deal with accounts payables people.

    And it's not UPS. 'Nuff said.
