Yep, especially on black.

PS, did you know there are white gnats? Yeah, they show up in black paint. Funnily enough, only the black ones seem to like white paint.

I've always loved cars since i was little. I wanted to be a mechanic but I got this job when I was 15 and got good at it during the past 11 years, so I stuck with it. I still do some mechanical work, mostly on my own cars though, but I'm happy with what I do. Mechanics make more, though.

Before IT I worked in government affairs

Where I work now the restaurants all do a very good job. Previously I worked in south and central Florida. Roach infestations left and right. Pretty nasty.

Oh, government affairs? Did you have a thing with Bill Clinton, I hear he had many affairs

So busted.

Don't tell DB, he thinks I visit his town for 'training'. If he only knew why I was really there, hubba-hubba.

I do not mind the smell of fresh cut oak. Fresh Cottonwood has a smell that many do don't care for either. But I can take a handful of freshly crushed black walnut leaves and enjoy that smell.... not many like that.

Ha! No affairs with Bill! It wasn't that type of government affairs. It was government/public affairs and I dealt with a lot of the NHL, NFL, MBL, MBA leagues as well as other big orgs on their fundraising and sponsorships. A lot of legal BS but it sure was a fun job!

I always wonder about restaurants... I am always under the impression that if you can see inside the kitchen from your table then it must be safe, like they have nothing to hide.

Server Administrator at a small community hospital.

It's kinda funny. In school I wanted to work in IT but kept getting pulled in different directions. I had gone to the local Vo-Tech and gotten certified to work as a Unit Clerk at the nurses station because the union plant I worked for kept threatening to strike and I couldn't face that (it was in VA which is a right to work state). 2 weeks before our class was complete our teacher told us to go to the hospital and apply for any position we qualify for...just to get our foot in the door.
I applied for a entry level data entry clerk. 18 years later....and it looks like my dream of working IT came true.

Some days I love it; some days I wish I was strong enough to hurl a big Dell PowerEdge R920 our a window...

I take care of old people when its time to lock them up, or they've reached the point where they can't do it on their own anymore...

IF someone told me i'd be doing this 6 years ago i would have laughed my ass off... but life tends to toss a lot of curve balls

I'm a home aide. I take care of the elderly and help them live at home. Is a new job for me, actually got into it at the suggestion of many here on ATS. I thought it was something that took years of schooling and the lowest level was a certified nurse or something, so is not something I ever considered even looking into.

I love my job. It doesn't pay the best, but I make up for the pay by actually feeling good about what I do. Is what I was missing with most of my previous jobs. I may be stressed, and sometimes overworked, and definitely underpaid, but at the end of each day, I feel good about myself. It helps keep me going and gives me a sense of purpose.

All I need now is to have a dog to greet me when I get home once again.

My job is very similar to yours.

Its the first job were I feel like I am making a tangible difference in someones life.

Before this I was a collegiate debate coach.

I am considering a congressional run un 2018, but we will see what happens.

Until then, I am a pretty happy guy with my job.

I'm not sure if that's sarcasm or if you genuinely enjoy your job.
