    What do you do for a living?

    Pretty simple. Seeing bajillion dollar bikes in some of these posts had me curious.

    A. What do you do for a living?
    B. What's the best part about your job?
    C. What's the shittiest part about your job?

    I'll start: Air Traffic Controller

    I really hate watching you all driving to work while I'm loading up for my daily ride...
    Honestly, it breaks my heart.

    positives....i get paid..i make cool shit some times

    cons....i hate it....dirty, stinking shit, noise,arc flash, back stabbing scum i always end up working for.... nothing is ever good enough...way to much OH&S bs these days

    America seems to call the trades by different names so its roughly all welding and fabrication of metal above 3mm thick

    What do you do for a living?

    Petroleum engineer. And sadly we're way too good at our jobs. Look at the price of oil. I'm in a field office and the only one left. This time last year there was eight of us plus a roustabout crew. They moved everyone out and gave me a bigger pipe wrench. I've been getting so bored with working 20 hours a week I'm thinking of driving a truck part time just so I'm not bored

    My name is Oppurknockity. I tune pianos for a living.

    One time, a lady asked me to come back a second time and re-tune her piano.

    I told her Oppurknockity only tunes once.

    That truly has been my job for the last 1.5 months out of work due to injuries. I hit it at the perfect yoga pant season.

    You know what they say, if life gives you lemons make lemonade. You're making the most of the situation. Earlier data suggest that you are a very good inspector.

    Good eye Hawg. I'm a yoga pants instructor by day and a porn director at night. Makes for some hard days but that's OK. The payoffs are immensely rewarding.
