General Manager, auto service. Old school as I've been with the same company over 34 years. A far cry from my graphic design degree many decades ago, but cars are another love of mine.

On a daily basis I get to interact with a very diverse clientele from Flat Earthers to Bio-Engineers. And hey, I can also tell you everything you would ever want to know about an auto battery or tires :-)

I'm a high school special education (students with Mild Mental Impairments) teacher. My original degree was Social Studies Grades 5-12 and my special education job was going to be my foot in the door because social studies jobs aren't readily available in my area. Twenty years later, I'm still teaching the same group and I've been department chair for a few years as well.

Mental Health Counselor, This December will be my 20th year,  I mostly work with children, in a very rural setting.  "How rural?" you may ask.  The county I live in only has 5 villages, no stop lights.  The county I also work in has no village over 2000, and they have a blinking 4 way stop.

I'm a stay-at-home dad to four young boys. When I can, I write plays, which are performed mostly by high schools and middle schools.  I also, ahem, write children's books about super heroes --  http://www.simonandschuster.com/authors/Noah-Smith/213572260 0

I'm just a part owner/founder in a plants and produce business, thirty years this October. I used to be more of a working partner, non-business travel and health have affected that. On the side I've had fiction, non-fiction, song lyrics and art published over the years (sometimes paid for in more than just copies even) and various production jobs. Also stints lobbying and raising awareness for certain causes.

Noah Smith: "If Wonder Woman were a dentist, how would she remove a molar? With a Lasso of Tooth." I admire that you got that one out into the world, we need it. :^)

Thanks! I found writing Wonder Woman jokes a bit tricky, compared to other characters, but that was one my favorites.

Great topic with great answers!

Cab driving? It just would be nice if everyone knew where they were going. A drunken slur about a 'road by the church' isn't really helpful!

Surveillance Agent for a casino in Reno Nevada. Been doing so since 2007 (more or less). I've been employed in the casino business since 1992.

Tried my hand at working in a comic book store here in Reno (Fandom's ComicWorld), but they closed due to bankruptcy in 1997 (they got sucked into the speculator implosion), so I returned to working in the casino business.

I work at Microsoft, which I love, and, in hindsight, realize I had been preparing for my whole adult life.

Of course I grew up wanting to be a comic book artist.

I work in what I call general advertising, itís what I started doing after leaving school, got a job at a Ad Studio in London, and worked as a Graphic/Production Artist. Over the years worked in several studios and agencies in dear old London town.


Then in í91 moved to the US and have been at an agency in Washington D.C. ever since. Love the work I do, and have worked on major brands. Still get fired up every day, even after all these years. I work on the print side of things and have no interest in the Inter-Web side. I love paper.

Get to play with paper, building boxes and comping brochures and such.


Still come in with a smile on my face and most days leave with one, what more can you ask for.


Cheers, Peter

I work in IT as a Systems Administrator while I wait to be laid off. I am also going to school for Emergency Management so I can stop doing what I hate and do something that can actually be a positive effect on communities.

Emergency Management on a national scale is what FEMA does.

I work for a company that makes broadcast and production equipment. If you have watched the news, a professional sport or been to a stadium or arena in the last couple of decades there is a good chance our equipment was involved. The last big instal of notariety was the Mercedez Benz stadium in Atlanta. That halo center ring is driven by our hardware and software as well as lots of other stuff.
