Hi,

I was just curious as to what type of work people do for a living. I work as a Telephone Market Research Interviewer would like someday to get back into the HR field.  If I ever won the lottery would leave my job in a heartbeat (though it would have to be millions). Just was wondering what kinds of jobs people had on this site. Might have felt differently about my job if it was more of a secure one but in between projects there are times when there is no work.  I'm not someone who will ever be financially comfortable based on the jobs I've held. For many years I worked at different non-profit organizations (translation meaning no money, lol).  Have a degree in Communications but never really put it to good use. Guess will continue to have my dream of winning the lottery (I'm not picky would be happy with any decent amount). I'm kind of proud of myself, made it 2 days without buying a lottery ticket (usually would have bought a Mass Cash or PB or MM by now).  Now if I could only cut out spending money on the lottery for much longer a time, but do not forsee that happening.

                        I write and create! One job working for the "man" (or is that kind of 70's.....I watch "good times" too much)and one job working for myself.

                        I also hide lottery tickets, then forget where I hid them so I am always a winner!

                          Some people work in a crappy factory 8 glorious hours a day.  Some don't.

                          Some people work at the local gas 'n go/stop 'n rob for 37 hours a week because they don't want to pay benefits.

                          Some people wait on tables for less than minimum wage hoping not to screw the orders up so the tip is over 15%.

                          Some people work in a pet store. 

                          Some people work in the powerhouse at Anheuser-Busch and used to get free beer every payday.

                          Now some people just want all the drama to stop and life can be quiet again.

                          I miss my knees.

                              I shouldn't have abused them as much as I did when I was younger. . .

                              Now they make creepy, creaky noises.
