Just wondering... thought it might be funny too.

Used to be white collar. Realized it wasn't me. Got a job in a chemical plant. Best job I've ever had. No office politics, good people who have your back, good pay. Only problem is its a 24/7 deal and I'm working today.

I added "somewhere in the middle"...

I work in an office and in the field. I am not a manager, but I do have a desk. I do hands on work and computer work. Basically, I do whatever it takes to get jobs done.

I guess I would fall in the white collar section. I'm an IT guy. Some manual labor. But mostly technical complicated problems, that require some thought.

Same here... I wear dress pants, shirt and tie, but find myself crawling through basements, closets and ceiling tiles doing whatever it takes to fix shit.

Well, at least I used to get that dirty... New job (with the more "formal" attire) keeps me a bit cleaner, but only because they have contractors and electricians to string cable. I still have to swap equipment in the closets, connect the wiring the electricians run, and drag printers/monitors/PCs anywhere over 5 floors of a hospital and 22 other buildings.

I have a cubicle, but with 22 other buildings to support I can't do everything remotely.

I work for a federal contractor (insurance) so white collar. Although, I have a very blue collar attitude, i.e. I basically don't like my job and would rather be out doing something more physical. I typically can't wait for the weekend so I can be outside doing something else and it's also why I play softball almost year round.
