Trucker hauling explosives for the mining industry.
The nice thing about trucking is the freedom to smoke whenever I like.
Just rolling down the road with 43 tons of high explosives and pulling
on a stogie.

I'm actually a former design student at Parson's NYC. I have a background in interior and furniture design. My father got sick mid way through my second year and being an only child I returned to take over his used car dealership.

Laughing I'm a plaid suit wearin' used car dealer folks! As for my dad, he's been in remission from leukemia for nearly a decade. At almost 80 y.o. he still comes to work EVERY day! Laughing

LMAO! When I read such pearls of wit, I realize how much I've missed ol' LL lately.

It's like the deafening silence that invades the house when the wife takes the boys to visit family.... feels good for a day or two, followed by the unpleasant awareness that something just isn't as it should be.... ah, probably just forgot to take a laxative.

BTW: I'm employed as a sales consultant for an engineering plastics firm, primarily assisting project engineers and maintenance planners in pulp & paper mills and sawmills.

I'm a director in a large private company. I run the seminar division of an Independent Financial Adviser in the UK. I also look after the marketing generally, and the website, which I also designed.

I sleep when I'm not busy.

I'm an aspiring writer. Read that as: I do whatever crap job is available at the time (currently pizza delivery) and cross my fingers that things will get better 'once I've sold a book'.

I guess I'll throw in here.

I am a consultant with a large company providing operations management services in hospitals (mainly) and large companies all over the USA. We focus on environmental services, facilities management, and business and industry services. I'm currently at a small hospital managing environmental services and supporting a wide variety of activities at the hospital. I really enjoy the infection control aspects of my job.

I love this job and plan on doing it for a while.

one of the EMT's was fired for something and he ratted out his buddy for undressing and fondling an unconscious black womens genitals while transporting her from an auto
accident.I guess curiousity got the better of him.She sued of course. Razz
