Default What do you do?

So how do you pay the bills?? What do you do for a living, and what does it entail, how do you like it and all that jazz?

I'll start.

I'm a highschool senior, durring the school year I work at Marc'* on stock, but basically because I am new I bring carts in from the parking lot. In the summertime I am a lifeguard at the local pool, and I can hontestly say that I LOVE that job. Hours are great, pay is incredible, and I honestly am great friends with all of my co-workers.

Head Electrician at the worlds largest sawmill, currently overseeing a $40million expansion. Not enough hours in the day, been burning the candles at both ends, I have had only 6 weekends off in 5 months
The only recreation lately has been this site Thanks to all the moderators and programers that bring me this great site..........I need it.

Next time your at the Home Depot or Lowes buying wood look for the Canfor logo and think of ol P'Dad.
