What's your occupation?

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

  1. Pipe fitter/ welder and metal fabricator since I graduated high school. Love it especially since it helped in me building my own smoker and getting started with this awesome good tasting hobby.
     
  2. Admire those skills.  You'll never go hungry with skills like that.  Even when/if the s*** hits the fan you'll have valuable much in demand talents to see you through the hard times.
     
  3. I did industrial maintenance for 22 years. In the last recession, my employer moved all our jobs to China and Mexico. Now I am a Transmission System Operator for a Generation and Transmission COOP. That means I'll keep the lights on for ya.
