    Yes, SW company. And you're right, there is plenty of diversity which is a big part of why it's fun! Just the range of customers makes it challenging in the consulting-projects and the role I have gives me a chance to get involved in sales, marketing and what-not, so every day is different!

    Can't see myself leaving anytime soon!

    Hey, me too! I was in Vancouver for the AAPM this year - did a lot of riding around the city, and a couple of bike trips in Alaska before the meeting. A pretty high # of mtbr's considering the relatively few medical physicists! I am new to this forum.

    I was the shipping manager for a fairly large e-commerce store (large for beauty care anways ) - But recently, I have acquired the position for internet marketing (mostly PPC campaigns [google search]).

    I never expected to be involved with this type of field - let alone in the Beauty Industry (which, BTW, seems recession-proof) - but it's pretty cool!
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I'm a little confused why this is in the "passion" section of the forums? What I do, and I'm sure what most do for a living, is far from a passion. Maybe this should be in "general discussion"

    Or, you could not worry about it and unwad your panties.

    Or, did someone hold a gun to your head and make you open the thread?

    Eh, it's an internet forum that you pay nothing for the use of. Don't sweat it. It's very easy to not click on a thread if the title of said thread does not interest you.

    I find myself doing (well, not doing) just that all the time. Try it, it's easy!

    I used to be an Airline pilot, but I quit because I was scared of heights. Then went to school to be a cop, dropped out cuz I hated authority. Was a nurse for a month, then left that field because I threw up anytime I saw blood, mucus, or any other human fluids.
    Went into IT but kept letting the smoke out of the computers. Became an Alaskin fisherman (just like the one you see on TV) but stop due to an allergy to fish.
    Was CIA for a while, but got paranoid of the man.
    Now I just sit here and read your cool stories.

    I have a job that most people associate with being about on the same evolutionary step as pond scum. No, I'm not a lawyer, I'm a car salesman. (Dun dun dun.....).

    Yes I sell cars for a living. New Volkswagen, Hyundai, BMW, Audi, Nissan, Mazda, Toyota and GMC. So if anybody is in So Cal and needs a car, let me know and I can hook you up. Yes that is a shameless plug, what can I say, I'm a car salesman.
    Some days I want to kick my own A$$ twice.

    Unfortunately the media takes a few incidents and tries to make it into something that happens on a regular basis. NYC, 5 boroughs are extremely bike friendly. Manhattan, Brooklyn alone have spent millions in the past few years on bike lanes. More bike kiosks opening all over Manhattan. Problem is when they have these mass rides when hundreds of riders block the streets and traffic. Most are respectfull but you always get your few who decide to ruin it for everyone else. I ride the NYC 5 borough ride every year and 30,000 + spots sell out in a matter of hours. Awesome ride if anyone is ever in the area around May 1st. Bike theft is out of control, I would never leave my bike anywhere, it takes a thief less than 5 seconds to cut a lock and ride away. It's done alot by people already on bikes. They'll ride up and chain there bike up next to the bike there going to steal and pull out a small pair of bolt cutters from a messenger type bag and that's it.

    Yeah, I understand there can be some media 'bent' ...but this 'bike theft' NYPD Talks to Times About Bike Seizure, But Not City Council: Gothamist by NYPD is not a media skew.

    Not to sure what that article proves. I could publish that the color of the "moon is purple", doesn't mean it's so. One of hundreds of papers in city with there own adgenda. I can say that when Obama does come to town they do take the precautions of removing cars,bikes, garbage cans etc... They even weld the sewer caps shut, not a new practice. Signs are posted to remove bikes, vehicles and if they are not they are removed for them. People don't listen or pay attention and then get pissed. Kinda like the guy who'll park in a bus stop then ***** at the cop when he gets a ticket. Noone wants to fess up or take responsibility for anything anymore. Everything is always someone elses fault, lame and old excuse. I'm not speaking as an employee of the city but as a regular person who sees this stuff all the time. On and off duty.

    Well, since I read all 8 pages, I'll play:

    Meat Manager for a local grocery store. We are a full service butcher shop that features local meat and poultry raised without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones.

    It's a rewarding job and comes with a 10-mile one way bike commute that keeps the fitness level where it needs to be to slay the singletrack in my free time. Unfortuanatley that does not include weekends or holidays, so while the rest of you get some R&R, I am working my arse off. Of course that means I usually don't have to contend with crowded trails

    LOL, I haven't had anyone run/pedal away from me for a bit. I end up with an extra 50lbs when I factor in my gear and on bike equipment. When I ride on my days off, I feel like I fly.

    Sweet, another food service worker!

    I think that makes three or four of us.

    Otherwise the trends tend towards healthcare, finance, IT;' the military has a good presence and at least two sea captains (awesome).

    Also, much respect to the handful of educators out there.

    Final year in graphic art major. Already working as a graphic designer for a quite big polish pastry shop in Montreal (9 locations). I also work as my own boss and run Chaveca Design. My week days are filled with 2-3 things : ride to school/work, work on computer and sometime find time for the third one, to eat dinner. Working in a pastry shop as it's own advantages, such as daily fresh pastries and delicious Polish donuts at super low price and what's better then editing a picture of a chocolate cherry&ice cream cake while eating it

    Lot of graphic designers/artists here too

    My weekends, I'm either working/doing mechanics or riding/fishing.

    Partner in a big law firm. I handle family law cases, commercial lit, & medical malpractice cases (defense only). I love my job (most of the time). I love going to court & fighting people's battles for them (most of the the time). It pays for my hobbies--road biking, MTBing on my Giant Anthem, dirt bike racing & duck hunting--& keeps my wife & son ensconced in the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed. But the stress & hassle can be enormous; sometimes I wonder about the road not taken....but this is the only thing I know how to do that people will pay me for, that pretty much lets me be my own boss.

    the problem is that your life and obligations are imprisoning you, making you feel that you need to continue working at a job that you despise.

    Get rid of all your obligations and quitting your job will become much easier.

    I would love to go back to it. I would have never quit but my wife finished college and got a job elsewhere so we had to move. I was going to put in a couple more years of school to get my paramedic license but before the school year started I got a job that I really like and make more than I would as a firefighter. FF/EMT would win hands down for just being an awesome job, but my wife and I are looking into the future trying to set ourselves up to retire by age 50. Making more money now means I can invest more for later.
