    I just saw this thread and thought it would be interesting to keep it going. I'll start, I am retired but I was a barber for many years. It was an interesting job, and you get to talk a lot. It was like being a bar tender but without the alcohol!

    I've been in IT since 1979, and was a contract IT consultant from 1997 until just recently when the economy took a dive - I was working as an object modeler on a huge project with Citigroup..... so much for working in the banking sector.

    So what do I do? I jump from the pan to the fire... now I'm a backend systems IT guy at a healthcare insurance company. Can I pick em, or what? (Actually, I really like working here. I hope Obama doesn't shut us down.)

    Wow, thats a lot of different jobs! Addressing 911, sounds like an important responsibility! Well anyway, I have been a lawn boy all my life and I still am, my own! Ha ha. But I like it. Its relaxing just going over the lawn and getting fresh air, talking to the neighbors. I think there's too many folks who dont do that, they hire a young boy or something to do their lawns, and then they stay inside and never get to meet them. I think if everyone worked on their own yard on saturday mornings and got out and met the neighborhood, the world would be a better place.

    Yeah, my experiences are pretty varied.

    It was, and although some of it was tedious, there was actually a lot of fun too. Worked with the various emergency providers and came up with a cohesive system to make things easier to find (making sure there weren't duplicate street names, making addresses flow logically, etc.). The GIS job was practically a direct segue.

    Hey! I was that boy. I still do my own lawn, though. I'm too particular to hire someone else, and it's pretty decent exercise, although summers here are brutal.

    Depends on your neighbors.

    I'd like to listen to it, but I'm not sure of the legality.

    I'm not sure what a "wash rack attendant" is, but it sounds like it could be really, really fun.

    LOL...not as much as you might think. The wash rack was where the company fleet got washed.

    Well, it was a telco, so there were a fair number of operators.

    Educator, currently Assistant Superintendent of Schools. Prior to that, I was a middle school science teacher, assistant principal, and principal. Middle schoolers are awesome!

    My training was in physiology and neurobiology, but teaching was much more fun!
