What do you do for a living

I was thinking about my own business and wondered what everyone else on the forum did for a living. My own business is an Apple Macintosh computer consultancy, dealing with all aspects of Apple Macs.

Macs are great, I wish I had one I have two part time jobs. I am a maintenance guy at a condominium complex and I am a cook at McDonalds. I currently consider my main job a student at the University of Detroit Mercy of which I am a Pre-Dental student.

I walk around with a clipboard all day and point at things. People salute me and call me Sir and ask me how my day is going. I tell them "fine" and to "keep up the good work". Someday I hope to find out what they are all supposed to be doing.

You're a spy? I never knew that, you keep that secret very well!

Yeah, a spy that owns a night club and drives a Ferrari. Roberto sure is the hallmark of discretion and certainly knows how to keep a low profile.

That's his secret, he's so high profile that no one would ever suspect him of being a spy.

They're a rowdy bunch those astronauts, 6 months in space and nothing to do except drink vodka. Someone needs to keep them in check and clean up the rest room after they've pewked up from all of that vodka
