:rofl: How appropriate! :lmao: :D

Also glad to know I'm not the only one who can't succinctly describe their job... well kinda... I'm in IT.

I work for a small consulting company where I do on-site HelpDesk support for a client company (which means everything from helping users open email attachments to hardware support to network, server, and DB admin stuff.

I also do MS Access application development and web application development, and phone support of said applications and on-site and online training for end users of said applications.

Really, I'm just a jackass-of-all-trades! :cool:

Subaru is just Toyota's little bastard, redheaded, cousin.

I work for whiny bitches who don't plan ahead and have to leave for vacation tomorrow. Find out the car they drive is about to shit bricks. Finally decide to fix it at 5:00 so I have to stay late to fix it so they can still tow their boat to the lake in the morning. :mad:

Bicycle mechanic and occasionally a salesperson at Performance Bicycle in Westminster. Hoping to get the hell out, ASAP. Last day is July 30th, at which point I might transfer to the Ft. Collins shop. I would like to pick up a welding/fabrication job in FoCo, but with only schooling and no formal experience, and my age, I feel that may be tough. I know it would be hard work, but really as long as I get the hell out of retail bullshit land, I'll be happy.
