What do I do for a living?

Post by tracker on Mon Jun 30, 2008 4:24 pm

Iíve often wondered what our members do for a living. When I read the posts, my mind makes a mental picture of the writer and gives them certain attributes. Sometimes I am given some help with photos posted. I gather small tidbits of information and add them to my mental file. One thing that goes thru my mind is ďwhat do they do when they are not postingĒ? How do they pay the rent?

Let me give an example:

I really enjoy MSHL posts. His posts are well written and can be very funny. He can argue science with the best here. Iíve often wondered what a person like this does for a living. I only have a few facts. He lives in North Carolina, 45 years old, has a pretty wife that hates Lost, works nights (Graveyard shift?), and cuts off body parts on a regular basis. He seems to have above average computer skills and is an excellent debater. The night shift clue should give me something.

If I were to guess (which I am) I would guess some type of IT job. Big companies need computer guys 24/7. But maybe he works for NASA (in NC??) nah!

Let me suggest a little game. Call it Guess my profession. I will go first. Anyone can play. I donít post all that often so I havenít been giving too many clues. I will give you 5 possibilities.

I am one of the following:

1) Civil Engineer

2) Arborist

3) State highway construction supervisor

4) Private Investigator

5) Own a Sporting goods store

Well with a user name like tracker and the way you piece together information would seem to suggest PI, but something makes me want to say Arborist so I'm going to.

Vincent, One of those sounds familiar to me. I think you might have made a reference to someone moving down the block??

I'n not sure but will sit back and make a guess later.

If I going to cheat, I will cheat at the end!

Vincent I will have to say Chiropractor since only people who are a Chiropractor can actually spell Chiropractor. ( I copied and pasted it)

I was torn (yes, horribly torn) between massage therapist and Chiropractor. Since I don't want to share my winnings with MSHL, my guess is massage therapist.

Tell me I'm right.

I already know, since I've seen your MySpace. Plus, I don't think I so much want an avatar that reads "I know what Vincent the Dog does". Maybe that's just me. Wink

But I'll offer my profession for the next round.

My profile says "Cog in the Government Machine / Aspiring writer"; do I...

a) Work at the Department of Motor Vehicles?
b) Am I in the Legislature (Congressman, Senator, etc.)?
c) Legal Secretary for the State Prosecutor?
d) Write Grant Proposals for the Department of Education?
or
e) Work for the DOT (Transit / Transportation)?

Caged, I'm going with
d) Write Grant Proposals for the Department of Education

For no other reason than I picked it at random and you list your humor as bitterly sarcastic.

If you were a DMV or DOT worker you'd have no humor at all

Tracker was right but Stitch was the funniest. Although it was a bit of a trick question as I am a Chiropractor assistant who does soft tissue work. I consider myself a bodymechanic .Alas CF I already know and can not guess.

Blonde, I'm going to guess Real Estate.

And there's only one guess on my profession... so I feel a little premature in revealing yet.

CF,

I' ve thought of you as a math/science guy. Most of the professions listed are kind of verbal/English major type.

My guess if the Dept of tranportation/civil Engineer/ smart guy job.. I'm right, no?

Blonde,

I'll guess public relations. You give a good appearance.

Big money in Pharm sales. My guess would be that would be difficult to give up.
