What do YOU do for a living?

Let's what everyone does!

I work as a Paramedic so I work shift hours and was curious as to how many if any forumers also work shifts. I know I tend to come on here during the night while on call. I find that my name ends up being practically in every section as everyone is asleep and we get no responses!

What does everyone do for a living?

A Paramedic. Do you enjoy your job? I'd of loved to have done something like that.
My husband and father in law have their own recycling business. I do all the accounts and wages etc. I really enjoy my job, and as I only do four hours a day, four/five days a week it allows me to have lots of quality time with the kids and gee gee's!

M2G I never noticed your post time being in the wee hours of the morning. I get in here as early as 4-5am but just cause I'm an early riser. I am semi-retired, just take care of the hubby and farm. I worked 15 years in dispatch/communications for a large aircraft company. I worked the 4:30pm to midnight shift the whole time I was there. Our little town is always looking for 911 dispatchers and I often think of applying but not sure if I could do the stress anymore.

Even tho it was never my intent I seem to have worked in food service for the most part.. I worked at the local cafe for 12 yrs, quit to babysit my granddaughter after my sons divorce.. Now I am Lunchlady at the Primary school(k-2grade) so I am off work when school is out etc.. Helps with the babysitting aspect.. Otherwise I've been a homemaker.

Hey, my brother is a Paramedic. How cool is that.

Right now I am a movie theater supervisor. I won't count myself a manager until I get my keys. Soon though, I will be going to school. I'll try to find a job in that town, or see if some of our family friends needs a groom.
