Question What does everyone do for work???

Well I was sitting here reading a few posts and I just got to wondering what some of you all do for work/study in school??

It's cool to find out something different about someone you "know" (well, we all kinda know each other here, don't we?)

I'm sure some of us would be supprised to find out what we do for a living!

(Moderators, I'm sorry if this is off topic)

history and economics double major at UCLA

This summer:
part time in an office running an internet electronics store
full time driving around in new Infinitis as the porter at the dealership - I must admit, the new G35 is definitely everything the mags say it is.

Past jobs:
Cashier in a bakery - all i could eat bread!
Handyman for real estate/management firm - some people wouldn't even change their own lightbulb and I'd have to do it for them.
Office clerk for Sushi fast food - never gonna do filing again
Manual labor in a warehouse - makes you learn the true value of money
Law office clerk - not fun.

So yeah, job hopping is kinda fun. All of these jobs are within the past 3 years, I like to mix it up a bit. It makes you a well rounded person, job experience has definitely taught me more than college. I think I'll keep my internet store job during the school year (it pays bank!).

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.
