Thread: What is everyone's occupation/profession?

    What is everyone's occupation/profession?

    If it's been done before I apologize, but I was just thinking... I wonder what everyone does to pay for their pools?

    I'm in Information Technology (IT/IS), and my title is Information Services Specialist II.

    We own a 24/7 diner. It's a lot of fun, but I get jealous because we don't have weekends/holidays like 'normal' families.

    This topic has been covered in a long thread that is pretty interesting reading.

    Perhaps one of our really nice Mods (Yikes!) could merge this topic into that old one. It would probably generate several new pages of fun reading.

    Don't know about 'really nice', but I was recently referred to as 'buttery'
    Merging this may be a problem, Dave. The original thread is in the V.I.P Lounge which is for supporters only and the OP, not being a supporting member, would not be able to see his own thread!
