I worked as a printing press operator for 35 years.  I have done offset printing and also printing boxes.  About 3 years ago I had a work related injury and unable to do that type of work. At this time I am not working.

I work for CSX Railroad in the track maintenance department. Best part of my job is, I'm outside every day. Worse part of my job is, I'm outside every day.

I was with Amtrak. Tho I was on-board. Railroad is a life style few can ever understand... 
Hats off to you guys in the yard. Thats brutal work.
My biggest problem (besides 5 20hr shifts in a row every other week) was I could never remember where I was! Sleep deprivation and 3000mile runs really F with ur head!

I work for the government, I'm here to help you.  More specifically I work as a contractor for the Federal Aviation Administration. I enjoy it a lot more than my old job, working in the computer department at one of the Casino's in Atlantic City. It has it perks too, I flash my FAA badge at any airport and bypass the long line at the security checkpoint (but I still get screened like everyone else), also get a small discount from the airport venders.

Currently I work 2-10 AM sorting packages. Worked this shift for 10 years until my job maintaining and operating high speed letter sorting machines was eliminated. ...

I did two years of Grave shift at a casino, I know how it is. You can't understand why the stores are not open 3am in the morning when your awake. Took me a good 8 years to get a normal 9-5 schedule job at the casino, that was until some investment company brought the company and forced me back to shift work. I hope they ROT in hell, but I'm not bitter.  :P Leaving there was the best career move for me.

Let bring this one back to life. There is more than 52 members on this forum.
I am a Dispatcher manager for an airport transportation company near Orlando, FL. I also own a small thrift store on the side. I pick and get donations for my stock and stock was getting low. So here I am a brand new storage auction buyer with all the time in the world. Except for the 50 hrs a week I put in, in order to keep health insurance and steady income. :o

That is awesome StorMe. I don't know if i could retire. Something about idle hands makes me wanna go overboard with booze/women/gambling/fighting you know all the fun stuff that's supposed to be a sin. Maybe when i do retire I'll move to California and get a MMJ card to calm me down.

Being retired doesn't mean that you have to sit around and do nothing.

BTW, my "other job" is being a self-employed electrician.

I think in all fairness, I should explain to you exactly what it is that I do. For instance tomorrow morning I'll get up nice and early, take a walk down over to the bank and... walk in and see and, uh... if you don't have my money for me, I'll... crack your f*ckn' head wide-open in front of everybody in the bank. And just about the time that I'm comin' out of jail, hopefully, you'll be coming out of your coma. And guess what? I'll split your f*ckn' head open again. 'Cause I'm f*ckn' stupid. I don't give a f*ck about jail. That's my business. That's what I do.


 ;D two in one day!   ;D

Your right.
What I meant was he had Pesci correct but switched movie qoutes from Casino to Goodfella's......


One movie I can qoute is goodfellas.   I own on VHS, original DVD (where you have to flip DVD over half way thru), DVD collectors edition, blueray and even on laser disk. LOL

I actually know (or knew, he died) Henry Hill.  Kind of a dick but fun to hang with as long as he was sober.  And a great cook.   Got a bunch of Goodfella's crap from him.

How is the Kmart gig?

I think I'd go nuts.   When I was 16 I worked holiday at Fred Meyers. Toy section!
It was horrible!   

The next year I worked their Xmas tree lot.   That was actually better even tho the  store manager mde us stay in uniform!  Dress shoes, dress pants, white dress shirt and tie!   Totally destroyed several sets of clothes and a pair of shoes.   35 degrees and heavy rain.   All for $7/hr.  But better then dealing with the crowds.

After that I gave up on retail and went into resturant work thru school.

K-Mart has been busy. I don't think money wise just people. Working in jewellery department so not to bad with the customers. At my interview they asked out of all the departments which one would I like the least and I said this time of year the TOY DEPARTMENT... LOL

I will finally get some down time getting like 20 hours this week. Have been almost full time since I started.  I am really good at retail... HATE the hours.

Could add on the missing in action thread same Uncle went horse back riding got thrown and broke 10 ribs and his collar bone. So I have been a nurse, and had to take care of his 9 houses, 2 dogs, and the chickens. On top of working till midnight at K-Mart.  He finally got a helper so I don't have to do it any more.  So going to take some down time and breath.

Yeah my Uncle is to stubborn or (stupid ) to let this get him down. He is up at 7 Am telling his new helper what to do and that he is doing it wrong.
I have taken today to do nothing (which of course means do chores around the house)

We have 4 chickens. We can let them roam around all day and only lock them up at night. so not a lot of work, Get three eggs a day.

Can't wait to get things back to semi normal. Clear out some inventory and just general clean up. Then get back into at least part time storage buying / Selling.  With the hours at K-mart should be able to get to a few auctions.
