Talking What's you daytime job?

So folks, its just struck me after posting in the what happens after you die thread that i have a job where by its varied and i'll see things that quite alot of people most won't during their lifetime including the things that are sometimes classed as taboo. I'm a multi-skilled service engineer specialising in process control with fluid chillers and thermoregulation. I also am a qualified electrician and combustion engineer. I meet lots of people and generally on the whole enjoy my work, i've been doing this for around 16 years now for various company's and take a personal interest in my clients and have pride in my work. I feel privelidged to what i do and not be bound to a desk or something less interesting.

So whst do you do then?

I have a few day jobs. My 9-to-5 (actually 8:30am to 4:30pm) is as a finance journalist for a news content supplier. But I also write for Mixdown Magazine, Australian Guitar Magazine and Australian Musician Magazine, all of which keep me quite busy!

I just started a new job working on monitors and computers. We do repairs to computers, monitors, and touch screens. Lots of integrating touch screens too.

Gooooooo PIRATES! I'm a former Pirate. Went there for 2 years before transferring.

I'm a statistic of our wonderful economy. Recently laid off mechanical engineer. I used to work on secret projects that I couldn't talk about. Actually I'm more in the aerospace realm - supersonic and hypersonic vehicles, re-entry vehicles, missiles, ramjet and scram jet engines. Now I'm waiting for that next big job. Not looking too good though. Boeing just laid off a ton of people and NASA is doing the same this week too.

In the meantime I'm working hard on my guitar business 2018 Customs.

Banker. Not the kind of thing you admit to any more.

D - "I'm Davy and this is my wife... she's a dockside prostitute.."
New acquaintance - "That's nice. What do you do?"
D - "I work in a bank."
NA - "Disgusting pervert."

I run a couple of regions and 'the rest of Africa' in the commercial property finance credit sphere - large scale housing development, industrial and retail property development and investment mainly. That means I used to be very busy with new deals and am now very busy with potential bad debts
