What's your occupation?

Discussion in 'General Discussion Sticky' started by sisco, Dec 6, 2007.

  1. I have 5 years firefighting/ems experience, currently looking for a paid full time position. For almost 2 years now, I've been working for Dunbar armored as a driver/guard. Picking up valuables and getting dirty looks from pedestrians when I block the crosswalk. Doesn't get any better. Oh, and I also used to fill/service fire extinguishers (nasty stuff, had to clean it out of my ears every day)
     
  2. Hey, blowfish, I've been to your bar, I've done a book signing at your bar! Very cool place indeed, and a regular stop when I visit Da Burgh.

  14. Worked in the Civil Engineering field, as a Draftsman, for years. Got tired of the very long hours and endless deadlines. Now, I search for dead people! For the past 7 years, I have worked at a genealogical library and help patrons research their family history. I had 30 years of research experience with my own family and helping friends prior to being paid to do it. I love my job!

    I see more than a few people here are in the auto industry.  I am a robot/ equipment technician for a major auto manufacturer.  My previous career was automotive technician.  I love what I do but TONS of overtime, weekends, and holiday work keep me off the smoker. [​IMG]
     
  17. I try to finance my new smoking addiction with my job as a cabinetmaker.  I am a self employed one man shop that builds custom kitchens, entertainment units , fireplaces etc. (check out www.craigcustomcabinets.com to see some work. 

    I've only just been introduced to the world of smoking and am already addicted.  I find myself thinking about bbq almost always.  My job lends itself nicely to smoking because i have a steady flow of nicely seasoned chunks of wood.  Usually hard maple but sometimes cherry, oak or hickory.  I also have been using fire to heat my house for the last 10 yrs.  i live in Canada so i always keep lots of wood around.

    cheers and happy smoking!!
