I do nothing - by choice.

I now feel much less outraged by my government's frivolous spending!

Really? Can't tell....

So I gotta ask, are you retired? How do you support yourself?

Good for you man. I'm sick of these cats that think it's ok to not work (not those who don't have a choice) but, those who choose not to work. IMO, they should be embarrased.

And you know, if work didn't suck we wouldn't be paid to do it...

Being in Kansas and in the Wichita area, I work aircraft. As for what I do, that depends on the day of the week. official title is electrical engineer, but I also certify systems, work with the FAA, troubleshoot planes, some design, certification and compliance report writing, and also a DER.

I love my job

That said I had some terrible jobs while I was in school.

Would you still go to work if they didn't pay you?

I love my job too mostly because it's the easiest exchange for food, clothing and shelter I can find. But, if not for them helping me supply my needs, I would be outta there....

I took a $20k pay cut to take my job.




Okay... technically, I had been unemployed for 7 months so it was an $80k cut followed by a $60k raise......

Yes and no... I love my job and it pays me well. But that comes at a heavy price as noted in my PTSD Thread linked in my sig. For 20 years I have been a Paramedic, Haz-Mat Tech (Chemistry, Rail Car Specialist, Etc...), High Angle Rope Rescue Tech, Swift Water Tech, and I'm in the middle of Structural Collapse / Confined Space Refresher Class at the moment. I don't receive any extra pay for any of these specialty positions so the guy that is doing the bare minimum on the job gets the same amount of pay that I do. But that said, I didn't join the Fire Dept. to just sit on my ass and get a free T-Shirt like some others. I joined to help others and that is what I enjoy doing. It is a different job every day that I show up to work and that in itself makes it worth showing up.

Would I do it for free? No. But in a sense I am doing some of it for just that.

Honestly yes. I drive cars for a living (among other less fun things like project management and data processing). I learn a lot every day and enjoy most days.

Edit: you get the idea, its not like I'd become a hobo just to do my job lol. I'd obviously leave if they stopped paying me.

That's great I'm happy for you guys. I think I will always be doing something myself. That being said, if I were to have enough money drop into my lap that I was no longer concerned about supporting my needs until well past my expiration date my fat ass would be out. I'd be fishing off shore and doing some other stuff I enjoy like spending that 40 hours a week with my loved ones.

I'm a Heavy Equipment Mechanic. I spent 7 years working on Heavy trucks and am currently working on Forklifts/Material handling equipment. I can't complain, the pay is above average and there is always work available.
