    I put children in soundproof rooms.
    This. I also allow young adults to go into different soundproof rooms, then I go in to fix what they've broken.

    I also get paid to tell people that they've forgotten/changed their password, which is why they can't log on :roll:

    Another accountant here I'm afraid. I AM a roadie too though, so it's ok.
    I work in corporate FP&A for an online Poker company. Very interesting line of work actually.

    Foiled :P

    I'm a member but haven't finished the APC yet but people not in the trade recognise the name a bit more if you add it. Last time i said i was a "building surveyor" my neighbor thought that meant plumber :shock: When i added the chartered bit it all came clear, though technically i'm not yet.

    Yep, much better to make something up than have someone not really understand your job! Surely a plumber would be a promotion?
