What was/is your occupation?

I saw a thread on this that was dated 2004. Figured a lot more people have joined the forum (like me) and I thought it would be interesting to see what ya'll do/have done.

For me, I have w@rked at an insurance angency, liquor store, retail store, and storage facility .

The last j@b I had was at Mega Corp as an Accounts Payable Manager.

Re: What was/is your occupation?

... just to round the field, and counterbalance such impressive occupations, among my easliest employments was that as a gravedigger. yes, with a shovel. it was hard work and didn't pay very well, but i received few complaints.
