or should I say supposed to work in an office. Most posters seem to be able to access the tinternet all day. Anybody work in a 'proper job'? Like dustman, traffic warden,copper, truck driver, pilot etc, etc. Be nice to know. Or even like me, not working. Oh I want to, but nobody wants me. :)

    Enjoy it while it lasts.

    It's a soul destroying moment when you have to exchange your CS95 because the elbows and arrse have worn out...

    I've been a truck driver, painter, M/C courier, Extra, Photographer, taxi driver, consultant, council officer etc. Lots of office work in the last one. Best paid, but boring AArrgggh. Giving 8 hours of your life away so you can enjoy the other 16 less commutes. Not worth it if you can avoid it.

    I'm a pizzaiolo. :D

    No internet for me. No desk. No air con (at the moment). Hours are all over the place.

    I'm a student, which is like unemployment but a lot more money and parties.

    Aaah life is sweeeeeet.

    I have worked in an office, I actually enjoyed it... But then I was only there for 6 months.

    No job here, not a lot around at the moment.

    Will miss the mid-week rides when I do get one though.

    Go-karts??? Maybe they ought to mention more stuff like that in the TV ads for careers in the armed forces - recruitment levels would go through the roof! :wink:

    Self employed + mobile internet = 24 hour access.

    Not necessarily a good thing...

    Office or more often working from home. I do get some fairly good business trips & conferences five or six times a year though. Kenya last year, Corfu this year, NZ next year, Blackpool last week :lol: I'm an academic and no I wouldn't dare claim that it is a proper job but just for the record I don't have the summer 'off' either.
