What's Your Day Job?

While sitting here scouting the board for interesting topics I began to wonder what many of us regular Fodorites do for a living when not wasting time here

Then I started to think what kind of a day job do you have that you can get into the travel business (thinking of Rocco and Julian) don't worry no plans to do the same!

My day job, as you might guess from my handle, involves the sale and marketing of wine. Actually it involves an awful lot of hand holding for a staff of over 150.

What's your day job?

So all we need now is a butcher and baker.

Serious egg head stuff, I assume Rocco's day job lends itself to your new endeavour.

Internal auditor in a private hospital - although it's an interesting job, my future lies in Africa far away from any deadlines.

Like James Dean said "Dream like you live forever, live like you'll die today".

Sadly, corporate lawyer, but I'm still working on that female action hero career I've been dreaming about.

I'm a Veterinary Technician - basically a nurse for a veterinarian. The pay is low, but I love my job. Naughty cats are my specialty so I'm known as "the cat whisperer."

Michael - You must get more time off than me!

Lily - perhaps some day you can tell me how on earth to get the "angry cat" designation removed from my cat's chart at the vet. Although my cat is not inherently "naughty," there's an awful lot of judging going on whenever we're in there now...

Lily, I am most jealous of your job. Except I'd prefer to be a dog whisperer.

And by the way, if anyone in the market for candlesticks just let me know.
