I worked for a moving van company, but it wasn't going any where.... so I moved on.

    OK sounds like both of your jobs are w/same co. keeps things interesting aye ? travel is cool also, but sounds a little too cold for me,

    have'nt seen any snowmobile racing on ESPN but have't really looked for it, (mostly only watch NFL) now I will.

    That racing on a figure 8 where the care are chained together is cool.

     

    If I ever buy the Challenger or any hi-po car mileage is not even a ?

    however back when gas was getting close to $4.00 a gal. I noticed that I was staying closer to the speed limit and staying in the right lane. LOL

        I had a very important job, with over a thousand people under me.

        I worked at the cemetery.

            Actually, that's true;  as a kid, I worked summers for the county, mowing the graveyard in the small town where I grew up.  Two bucks/hr., that should tell you how long ago. (and gas was .28 cents/gallon, too - sometimes a lot cheaper w/ "gas wars")  It definitely was a small town, with more folks in the cemetery than lived in the town.

              LOL, I believe you. And I may add 2 things to this. I also mowed lawns in a cemetary when I was a kid. And gas was the price you quoted. But going 1 step further. About 15 years ago when my wife and I were together, we purchased a home that had a historical cemetary in the backyard. I spent a good month retoring it, resettng the tomb stones, painting the old iron fence, reseeding the lawn. It made the headlines here in Rochester including 2 TV channels did a story on me. Have a great day Mike...Wink

                Great   Thread

                 

                Interesting     and     FUNNY    !!!!!!  Smile

                 

                One  of   the   reasons  I   like   LP   so    much

                 

                My stomach is still hurting from laughing  so  hard  ( good  job  Ridge  and  Artist  and  all  the  others  )  Thumbs Up

                 

                As  for me...........I used to work  for  Motel   6   ,  until  the  economy  got  so  bad   , that  they  wouldn't  leave  the  light on  anymore

                 

                So  I  quit  Smile

                 

                I enjoyed  reading  what  people's  jobs  were   ( and  are )   on   here

                 

                I have had more than  one  over  the  years

                 

                Worked on a farm most my life  and  also ran a  farm  myself...........Tobacco  , hay  ,  build  fence  ,  etc.  ( back breaking work , but a good and  free  life )

                 

                Had a job when I was younger ..........keep people from sneaking into the drive-in's ( remember   those days  ) .......you wont believe what people would  try ,  to  get in  without  paying...........didnt pay much......10.00  a  nite  ( 30.00  a  weekend )  but money did go  little further back in those days ( heck ... it went a LOT further ) than it does today. And one of the perks was any food you wanted to eat while you were there ( I liked that part the best  )  Smile

                 

                Drove a cab

                 

                MP  in  the  Army 

                 

                Worked  on  and  ran  amusement  game  machines  on the streets  for  many years..............got pretty  good at working on  electronic machines  ( amazing what you can teach yourself if you set your mind to it  )

                 

                Enjoyed  it  all

                 

                Dont do a lot these days........time  is   closing   yesterday's  door

                 

                Main  job  presently..........keeping  up  with   LP   Smile

                        That's a cool story!  Thanks, I'll try to have a good day, but I'm in wait-and-see mode right now.  Depends on how the Cowboys play... they may have other plans for me.  Hope YOU have a great day, though, enough f/ both of us. 

                        I think my home town cemetery is the only one I've seen that has a sign on the front fence:  "Watch Out For Rattlesnakes".  The graveyard was close to a picturesque creek, just up a hill, but since the water table was so high, the ordinances said the graves only had to be four feet deep, not the customary six, which meant the top of the casket was often just a foot or two under the surface.  Several times I'd be mowing along and step along the side of an old grave, one with a wooden coffin which had finally rotted through and put my foot right down into...well, you get the picture, I bet.   Stepping on the dead didn't bother me near as much as thinking I might have my foot in the middle of a rattlesnake den.

                        The summer before I went to college, I worked for the state hwy. dept.  After picking up right-of-way for a good part of that summer, I haven't since - and never will - thrown any trash out my car window.  Found a lot of weird stuff on the side of the road, though... bags of pot, dirty magazines, wallets, underwear, all sorts of stuff that made me wonder about the story behind them.

                        I've had a LOT of jobs,esp working on drilling rigs where the rig might move off a hundred miles after finishing the hole, why stay with that one when there was another one across the road? I had so many different roughnecking jobs one year, I started to make a book: "Mike's W-2 Forms"
