Tell us.....................What is your Job ?

Postby Raffles » Sat Nov 03, 2012 23:49 pm

Im a civil servant and I work in an office and it is boring.....boring........boring !!

I think of it as utter tedium and it provides none of the satisfaction that I get from being out on the bike.

So.........................what is your job ?

Same here. I'm a project manager in the civil service. It isn't as boring as you job sounds but its great to get out in the fresh air on the bike.

I own a large CNC precision engineering company, we machine parts for Forumla 1 & aerospace. Oh and have done lots of private jobs for my bikes like titanium bottle cage bolts, stem bolts. The perks of having all that machinery at your disposal :P

Maintenance engineer with packing machinery....
Not time served, no formal quals, but 11 years on the tools from the age of 42, just goes to show, its never too late to learn something new, and boy can it be rewarding...and scary at first, but thats what makes it interesting.
Like selling coals to Newcastle, i found myself (with everything ive learned in 10 years) working in Spain, on their Spanish machines, teaching them how to deal with certain problems.

Don't be afraid to tread a new path, but be prepared for some stress and fear doing it.
