    I am just curious what most of you do during the day, or the night I guess. I work in a shop fixing various equipment. I work on everything from weedeaters to Boomtrucks and dozers. Probably a third of my job is welding and fabrication. I feel fortunate, since I actually like my job. The hours are great, and the pay is good. Also, I have access to a nice shop, and I don't have to buy any tools.

    Tell me what you do, for how long, and whether or not you like it.

    I deliver dairy products to different companies, such as bakeries, rite-aids, stuff like that. I only work 4 days a week, hours are long, but I have been bustin' ass to get stuff done right away, and I hop on the net everywhere for a couple of minutes or on my lunch. I work for my Brother-in-Law it is his own business and I make great money. Hard work, but worth the pay.

    Self emplyed body repair technician :D . I love what i do, I have no boss, and i make very good money. Although sometimes it is hard being a one man show, due to the fact that i do everything from running to get parts to collision work to reinishing. And working for yourself teaches you how you gotta do what you gotta do to get shit done (not in a shodball kinda way) just as far as workin goes i end up puttin in alot of hrs. I dont know how many nights ive spent till 12 1 in the mornin gettin a job done. but it all pays off in the end

    I'm self-employed. I sell antiques, small things, no furniture. I work from my home and also take many out-of-state road trips. I can work out of my Si. :)

    I deliver pizzas wed, thurs and sat.

    I am a maintenance guy at the food court in one of our malls, I also clean the clubhouse at an apartment complex in another part of the city.

    It's all easy work, but it's annoying me already. So... I just farted.

    When I actually get to do my job, I blow shit up, and fire automatic weapons, but since you just can't do that all the time, I end up work with morons mot of the time. So, I like my job, and hate the people.

    i sell tree's :D

    commission can be fun, and it can be shitty..

    i make a base pay of $3/hr and 3% commission..

    this last weekend, memorial weekend, i made $575 in 25 hours, which works out to be ~$23/hour. then i had a consultation, where i go to a persons house, design thier yard, and they give me $65 cash. this usually takes me about an hour to do..
