The things I do at work...
« on: March 09, 2008, 10:40:13 am »
Yes, I'm currently working at Office Max. My job, today, is to walk around the store, trying to sell customers things. Guess where I am now? The back office, 'doing inventory preparation'. This translates into, 'I'm bored, no one's here, so dammit, I'm gunna go watch you tube videos and get paid for it.'

Still, I dunno, I wanted some human interaction. So, I jumped on here. I plan on doing a bunch of work on the forums tonight, so you guys should see a new short story, a new introductory thing for RFI, and some nive, shiny bio pics thanks to Ginny. w00t.

I'm still bored, though.

I used to work as a Master Draftsman for an Engineering company, and when times were slow I'd spend all day on the net, twas how I ended up in the Military, I stumbled up a recruiting site, and the rest is history.

Wow... I bet you made some pretty decent money.

And, let me ask you this: Now that you've actually joined, do you think the recruiting site was telling the truth? (I'm curious, as I know several people on both sides of that particular fence.)

I made ok money, I was living well, but I could have had better pay, which was one of the reasons why ultimately did join.

Recruiting sites are recruiting sites, they are honest like a little child that just did something wrong is honest when he admits to what he did but tries to sugar coat it.

I was pretty lucky, my older brother is also in the Military so he was an invaluable resource, and I did lots of research on my own.  That is the best advice I could give someone before joining, talk to people, and there are fantastic forums sites out there with tons of experienced Military people who love to help others out.

Nice way of putting it. :)

Lol nice job.
My summer job is great.
I walk around a table picking up papers all day.
That is actually a good description of what I do too.
Sad, I know.
It's a good job though.
we pretty much get paid to go on a vacation in the end too.
The only downside is all the paper cuts!!

I think my title would be something like "calendar colator".
I put the pages in order after they are printed out.

Mine is great.
We do the work subconciously(some one can fix that if they like) and spend most of the time talking and listening to music.

Money buys happiness right?


Random but I just saw this smiley and it reminded me of something.


 :doh: Could've had a V-8.

No, money doesn't buy happiness.
Having a job that you enjoy working that just happens to fork over shit tons of money is happiness.

And yes!

You could have had a V-8  :commissar:

That's true.
I'm hoping to work for ESPN some day so I know exactly what you are talking about.
