What Do You Do for a Living?


Recommended Posts

I was in Enterprise software for years, moved over to cybersecurity 8 years ago. I finally reached my financial goals and retired July 4th. Now I practice golf daily and play 2-3 times weekly.

Wow, a lot of IT guys............cough nerds cough..........just kidding, don't hurt me. I'm a college student, majoring in sororities if you catch my drift.

I'm a software/web consultant. I like looking through the server logs mid-day to see who's browsing the main site (we don't keep statistics on forum usage). It's always a bunch of people using thei

I am a freelance AV tech. I spent 13 years with my previous company before being pushed out under the new management that eventually bankrupted the company within 2 years.

Sometimes being "Pushed Out" can be a good thing.

Oh no doubt. I think it was the best thing that could have happened. I went from being on salary and giving away an average of 10-15 hours a week In OT to getting paid for all the hours I work. Also no more stress of being in charge of people. All I worry about now is my performance. No more asking for time off. I work when I want and if I need to be off I just don’t work that day.

Glad it is working for you.  I'm similar to you.  As long as I make sure my clients are covered & can do what I please.  On Monday @ 8am I got a call that a group needed a fourth for an outing at a really nice course and I was able to juggle the calendar and had a great day golfing a course I would not normally play.

Retired from 38 years of management  in building materials industry. Wife too young to retire just yet. 6 months later I was back at work in the trenches at the County Road Commission. (Low stress, lots of PTO, great bennies, crap pay, but I'm getting paid to exercise, love it.)

I work as a Firefighter/Emt, along with running a small cattle operation as a hobby. Being a firefighter allows me 2 days out of every 3 for golf so I’ve gotta say it’s the best job around.....

    • But we do not know who is vaccinated among us, and many of them are not wearing masks. I'm vaccinated but there's still a 5% chance of catching the virus. So I still mask.  No longer to protect others, but to protect myself.
    • If the store request that I do, then I do.  I would say almost every store in Ohio has updated guidelines that vaccinated people don't have to wear masks. 
    • It felt a bit odd going maskless, but I'm pretty much mask-free now, having had my second vaccine dose in late March.  I still see a significant percentage of people in the grocery store wearing masks, maybe 25 or 30%.  I always have one with me, in case I go into a place that requires it, I'll continue to respect the rules that a private business might have.  I do wonder how many who continue with masks do it because they're still a little concerned about exposure despite being vaccinated, or perhaps haven't been vaccinated but still respect the mask rules.
    • Anybody still wearing a mask when going to a restaurant, grocery shopping, Etc? I pretty much am mask free unless mandatory, like health care facilities. Some people still don't feel secure w/o a mask. 
    • You're right, but in the post you quoted, it was one partner conceding the other partner's putt, not an opponent.  I'm not sure what the format of the competition was, but it doesn't sound like normal match play procedure.
