I forgot to mention that I own and operate a recording studio on the side, we produce for local talent and have worked for some folks that have done pretty well in the business. and if any of my skoolie family would have a use for such a facility, a large discount could be yours for the asking. I have been a musician all of my life and have had the good fortune work with some real professionals.

You just might be, Robert.

I'm a wannabe busnut. Maybe someday I will grow a pair of nuts and tell the wife I'm getting one. I had best make it livable quick as she will probably throw me out!!

So are you an on site guy or field tech?

Doesn't SBC have a big site there where they do all their billing? If so, it's the place that put me out of a real cushy yob. We did the SNET billing. I was the onsite guy for 2 machines. Man, that was sweet....til one broke.

Well Pete, I'm an onsite guy working at ATT, formerly SBC (same place, different name ). I've been working for BBH (old BH type) for about 8 years and started in Phoenix, working at ATT, Mesa site.

The way I got around the wife problem was I got the bus, without her permission. When she said it's either the bus or her, I took the bus

Actually, got rid of the wife, then I got the bus.

What's really funny was, getting a bus, was about the only thing the ex and I agreed on. The thought of travel, not to mention, me being busy all of the time, appealed to my ex.

Robert

BTW Pete, check your private messages. I'll be sending you one soon.

All right, I'll fess up.
I started out as an automobile mechanic and somehow wound up as a truck driver. (Not sure what happened -- something about a nasty labor strike and also my divorce. ) Been pushing 18-wheelers for 26 years on and off, but I only do it part time now.
On the side I write magazine articles for a car magazine in Norway (where I was born). Been doing that for a dozen or more years. Much more fun than driving truck!

Re: What is your profession / trade ?

i'm a professionally hated man as well as a student (IT, getting my associates and a+ cert. hopefully MCSE too), but my main occupation is as a slacker/procrastinator (my girlfriend hates my job, lol) in all seriousness i work for the largest outsource customer service firm in the country under contract to the most evil financial giant i know of (BofA) i'm a senior specialist in their northwest market of customer service and support. i know WAYYYYY too much about checking and savings accounts, and how you can either get screwed on fees or know the loopholes and how to use them. i can't wait to get out of it, but it does look good on my resume.
