What do you do for a living?

Recommended Posts

Good for you, seauxrite!

I'm sure that you've earned it.

 

A  five at 68?

My jealousy is no obstacle to my being happy for you at the same time.

A five still working on being a 4..maybe a 3 if I can get my new wedges under control..lol.  Shot 74 today at Pueblo Del Sol in Sierra Vista, AZ.  Nice course and great greens.

  I guess that I would say that I am just about where I want to be at the ripe old age of 68.

I truly loved your post because you are where I want to be at the ripe old age of 70 and it gives me hope.   Come January 1, I will be fully retired and you mirror my hopes or at least my plan.  I just can't stay home and watch Jerry Spinger.    I congratulate you and wish me luck.

Good on you.  I understand the not being able to stay home and watch TV.  The golf course gives me a place to go, daily exercise and an excuse to drink an adult beverage with "the boys" afterward.  Have fun, enjoy those days when the golf gods give you good bounces and understand that there will be days when it just doesn't seem to work.  Keep us posted on how the plan plays out!!

I’m 62 been retired almost 9 years now. Was the coordinating supervisor in the water works industry for ever. They did a restructure and decided to oust a few of us oldtimers with the “golden handshake” because we made too much in salaries/ benefits and retirements. I was very lucky and blessed in how things worked out for me. Wife’s an acct at a fancy city that keeps us in a great medical insurance system, so again, lucky and blessed.

now my life’s goal is to shoot my age someday somehow...

Retired after 30 years with Boeing Research & Development.  The vast majority of this spent in materials & process development. I worked on all but the 707 and 727 commercial programs and traveled quite a bit.  This April will mark 3 years since retiring and I'm amazed just how quickly time does fly by.

31 and work in the IT industry. Current position for the last few years is IT System Engineer at a hotel and casino. Next month will be 6 years with the current company. Living in Vegas it's nice having a job that is indoors with a/c during the summer. An office job also leaves me time to practice some putting on the carpet.

For the last 12 years I owned a Pub and got to play lots of golf.  I sold the pub and retired.  I got bored and took a job as General Manager of a country club.  I play split rounds now.  In the morning the pro and I play nine and in the afternoon the Super and I play the other nine.  Some days I play with the members if the invite me.

Sorry to hear things haven't worked out so well 😂

I'm hoping there's a support group we could point mackdaddy to to help him.

 

if not, I have one question for him, "do you want an assistant?" 😉

I posted on here in 2016, so since I’ve changed jobs, here’s an update:
I work for the world’s largest Eye Bank.... Our company is one that will come and collect the eyes of organ donors, then we use the various “parts” for corneal transplant. I specifically call on Ophthalmic Surgeons, try to get them to use our corneal tissue, and sell them the devices used for the surgery, as well as train them HOW to do the surgery. Being in the OR is enjoyable, and it’s pretty crazy that I teach SURGEONS how to do their job! They went to school for 14 years, not me! Hahaha!
I cover 8 states and travel WAY too much for my liking. I’d still love to figure out how I can get back to coaching, but I’m 50 with 15/11/7 year old kids... Not gonna happen until I’m 70!
Hoping I can stay in Ophthalmology, but work for another company with a smaller territory.

Hope it works out for you, I know how hard it is to raise kids those ages and have to travel a lot for work. I have 11 & 7 yr old boys and just recently retired from the Air Force. Thankfully I found a good paying job, where I don't have to travel anymore. I'm currently an estimator and do some design build projects for a mechanical contractor.

I work for a transportation insurance carrier and work with some of the largest fleets in the US.  I manage many clients and work to ensure that the insurance does not get in the way of their everyday business and have what is needed to satisfy customer and DOT statutory requirements.

I hope your retirement is in BA stock...my goodness what a gold mine.

I'm a property tax valuation negotiator for a large oil and gas company. I ensure we pay a fair share of our taxes to the local jurisdictions on one of our refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast. I do the same thing when you protest your property taxes, just with a few more commas in the value. Texas is a great state but their property tax laws need to be revamped because this is getting out of control for both home owner and business owner.

I've responded in here long ago, but this needs to be replied to since my career path in the 2-way radio has morphed dramatically over the course of 33-years. When I started as a Ground Radio Repair Communications technician (2841) in the Marines, I wound up working exclusively on the VRC (Vehicular, Radio, Communications, M1A1, Green😛) series of radios that still operated with tubes. Digital technology was just barely beginning to show up as I left for the civilian sector and has continued to advance every year since. Now the big Motorola Astro stuff I take care of is basically a giant IP network with a tiny RF (radio frequency) element attached on the end. Therefore I've been forced (sometimes kicking & screaming) to become less of a radio guy and more of an IT geek. Routers, switched and hubs, OH MY! Had to take Network Plus and constantly need all kinds of certifications to keep up. I'm pretty good at it now (I kinda have to be), but I constantly joke about how all this damn technology that is supposed to make life easier can also be the bane of my existence. My mantra when things go awry? "This is what happens when IT dweebs have taken over the earth!"🤓

Unfortunately, I'm one of them...🤫

Wow, you have a cool job.

 

One highlight of paramedic school for me was assisting a Dr. performing an enucleation. Without getting into detail, it was the second most incredible procedure I’ve ever been witness to (first was a CABG During orotracheal intubation rotations). The anatomy lesson was incredible. One of those, hey, I need a student to assist who can you spare. I’ll never forget it.

 

Since some guys are updating and for the new folks. I’m a fireman. Pretty straightforward.
