    Was thinking about this earlier after reading the LT Bib thread. It seems that our group spends the most on our trucks and yet still live normal lives. So What do you for work?

    I work as a Help Desk person in a Data Center (IT stuff) and during the Fall - Spring I do concrete coatings from time to time if I want some cash to buy something big since that all extra money.
