Default The "What do you REALLY do?" thread....

I got to thinking about it, and wondered what some of the folks on here do in the spare time they have away from their Bonneville'* (aka their Day Jobs)... might be interesting to find out.


I work for a Fire and Safety company called Van'* Fire & Safety
We install fire suppression systems in restaurants and auto body shops, computer server rooms, log saw machines in paper mills...list goes on

Also do annual and quarterly inspections on sprinkler systems known as 'back flow' tests

I work with many local fire departments and fire inspections companies to help enforce 'code'

So thats me in a nut shell......

How about you? What do you do to support your family...I mean your Bonneville?

I live on interest. Not been working out so well for the past year, but the checks are coming back up. I switched Investment firms and learned to become more involved with the risks/choices.

I'm a senior in highschool and work over the summer to help pay for the fun I have with my Bonne, now that the money is getting low I'm looking for another job but since rugby is starting soon I'm not sure if that will happen

I do work from time to time on other peoples cars usually in audio, aftermarket electronics but we do some performance stuff, trying to start up doing maintainance on cars but we don't have the advertising since we work out of my friends house
