I'm a landlord and I'm down to only one apartment complex (owned several but sold em when the market was hot). Also a Realtor and soon to be car dealer. I'm all over the map but always (ok not always) seem to come out ahead. I'm also a full time beach bum. :D

My first job was at a gym, cleaning people's sweat off machines, keeping the weights organized, mopping/vacuuming, washing towels, all the good stuff. At least I got a free membership ($400 value). My boss made me run errands too. One time he gave me about $10 to go make a bunch of copies for him at Office Max. I kept the money, drove to my house, and made copies there. Zing!

My last job was at Hollister, a clothing store. I worked in the stock room, folding clothes, putting them back on the floor, and organizing inventory for four hours at a time. The job itself wasn't anything to brag about, but the ladies who worked there were :D At least I had good managers then, but now all of them left and I don't plan on going back there. Still have my employee discount card though :lildevil:

Now since I started college I haven't worked since late August. I'll find an on-campus job for the rest of the school year, then find a new job in the summer.

I try my best not to let it bother me though. For the most part the days go by smooth, then there are those times when it's like why the heck am I doing this? and it's the people, not the work that does that.

ASA dosn't fly them ;) We've got the CRJ200 and 700, and still manage to keep a dozen of the old ATR72's around.....

Here is another picture of the 200, then the ATR. The 700 looks like the 200, but longer, and when on the ground has a cool rake to it :cool:

This is our downstairs hanger, mostly where our overnight work is performed, there is an upstairs hanger that is bigger, it can hold 3 airplanes, that is the C-check hanger, or if we are out of space, or just feel like being different, we'll pull our overnight airplanes up there.

The 200 again:

Might not get u in trouble but I may get at trouble at work, I cant stop lookin at the pic thinking damn the things I would do to that ass, I could squeeze one out right now if I were not on a trading floor... If u need an apprentice I may consider a career change and just trade in my free time.

@#$^%#W

I hexed myslef!!!

I had just posted that the job isn't its all cracked up to be, was showing it to one of my Floorman whom i was giving a change order too and the house mom called the office phone saying there were two girls fighting in the dressing room...

The floorman and I raced in there and two girls (neither speak engilsh) are going at it, flinging each other by the hair.. it took 4 of us to seperate them, I broke my blackberry holster and smell like.. well like a stripper and my arms look like I went 10 rounds with a cougar.

:mad2::mad2::mad2::mad2:


The reason.... one girl went to stage when the other one was suppose to go and the first one shoooed the the second one away. So the second one waited for the first in the dressing room and it was on.

:cookoo:

Back when I worked for RCA Service Company at a satellite tracking station, on a slow night shift I went around taking a survey on past work experience. The point being made was that people who need work and who are willing to work will take any job they can get. Keeping in mind that these guys were some of the most highly trained and highly paid electronic techs in the world, some examples were, piano tuner, tug boat deck hand, cab driver, undertaker, lead guitar player in a western band, high rise window washer, portrait photographer, heavy duty mechanic, auto tech, gas pump jockey, dishwasher, cook, bank manager, restaurant swamper, big game guide, bush pilot, retired military, hired muscle, furniture mover, pig farmer, deep sea whaler. The list was almost endless but these are the memorable ones.

Well, for those who don't know I work within a non-profit organization. Since our restructuring a few years back, I now actually hold two "official" titles - CIO and Director of Technology. It's all BS really... before the board decided to change things according to "the rules of corporate governance," my title was simply that of Technology Director... that's what I still go by really, it's much less of a mouth-full.

There's really not that much to it, there's six other people in my department - the Tech. Coordinator, Tech. Trainer, two Technicians, and my secretary and frankly, they're the ones who do most of the work. Anymore these days, all I really do is go to meetings, sign things, and occasionally break things just to make sure my people are on the ball.

Anyway... just as an example of my non-constructiveness, I spent an hour this afternoon photoshopping a panorama of my office... half my week is spent here, the other half I usually work from my study at home... or from the golf club ;) :shhh:

LOL.... HVAC.... thats funny..... it's more like H-1/2V

No A/C at all, for heat we've got electric ignition gas heaters ont he ceiling. sp when it's cold out we close the hanger doors and turn the heaters on (thrmostat) when its not cold the hanger doors are open, there are some old industrial fans in the roof that attempt to pull air thru.

So yes, this Summer in Georgia when we reach 110* highs, hottest since 1987, I was working in my pants and t-shirt basically in those temps but with shade :)

I must say tho, living in Florida for 1.5yrs did get me used to the heat, it's not TOO bad, I just drink alot of water, and this past Summer was not normal temps, so I don't think it'll be that bad this coming year.

About a year ago I came out of semi-retirement to run the marketing & sales database systems for Godwin Pumps - local private Co. that designs/manufactures/rents/sells large scale pumps and systems. We do sewer bypass, construction dewatering, fire control, lift stations, environmental, and mine/quarry dewatering. One of our high-lift pumps can push a 12" column of water 600 feet up..handy for getting the water out of that quarry...
