Just curious....

before you rip my head off, this has nothing to do with airlines. However, this is the board I most frequently read on Fodors.com.

What do you frequent posters do for a living? The reason I ask is that some folks post many times through out the day. If you feel it's not my business, then no need to post. I'm just curious....

I'm a National Account Executive for a technology/business outsourcing corporation.

Meant to add, I never post at work or even read the internet.

When not on the road, I work out of my house and I'm on line "almost" 24/7, so it's not a big deal for me to "check in" with Fodors or Flyertalk every so often....

I wonder how people find time to check-in from home... hmm... 95% of my posts come from work.

JaGirl, shh... they are watching us!

I'm in the same situation as AAFrequentFlyer. I usually check in after breakfast or just before lunch, then late in the afternoon, but the computer is online 24/7, so any time I need a break from what I am doing, these lists are one of the things I do.

JAGIRL, I knew I liked you for a reason--my best friend is a lawyer.

I am a 43 y/o gainfully unemployed humanoid still trying to figure out what to be when I grow up. Thankfully, I have a very understanding husband.

I'm still trying to figure out if I'll ever grow up! Therefore, thus and hence, I can't tackle what I want to be yet.

I check in from work too. I'm always online doing research or e-mail or whatever...and my computer is always on. I multitask like a robot! So every now and then when I'm on the phone I'll go surfing...
Plus Fodor's is a wealth of info for travel ideas.

Faina...you know...I kind of felt like someone was watching me you know...just couldn't shake that nagging feeling...

All right, let me make it easier for everybody.

Who is not an accountant, not a lawyer, or not an accountant working in a law firm (me) raise your hand.

LOL. I have my hand in the air.

Happily retired.

Retired teacher, but DH and I have also owned our own business for nearly 30 years. So I'm retired from teaching, but not retired from WORK!!

I'm in the oil shipping business and like JAGIRL, do a lot of multi-tasking. So, I'm usually logged in all day and manage to check posts in between doing a multitude of other things online.

Faina, I also have more time to post from work than home.

I am self-employed, an independent legal nurse consultant for many years, doing medical-legal work (there's that "L" word again- but hey, it gives me good $$ to travel with, so I am NOT complaining).

I work at a home office most of the time, and when I am not working at home I am traveling for work or pleasure.

I do a lot of medical record reviewing to figure out cases and try to settle them, and I can only do so much of it without taking a break. Usually when I take a break I check fodors a few times a day, esp. if I am planning trips like I am now (to NYC w/my daughter and then to Peru w/my son).

I don't think I could ever go back to work for someone else; at least it would be extrememly difficult to do so. I am very fortunate to work for myself.
