My workplace is nice. Cool bosses (all like good music), laid back environment, no pushy sales crap. Trading/asset management firm, clients invest in all sorts of commodities, currency exchange, futures markets. I would go crazy if I worked at some nosy, beauracratic, conservative firm. As long as the work gets done, we are encouraged to have a good time and not stress out. If only all white collar jobs were like this...
i basically run a route for 12-14 hrs a day selling food, talking about food but rarely eating food,
tough to do when you love to cook, but a really cool job, getting to meet all kinds of people from
all walks of life. Boring story, I now live in Minnesota, but lived in Vermont in the late 80's for about 2 years in a small town of about 2,500 people, and just recently learned one of my customers here over 1,500 miles away lived in that same small town at the same time.
I'm a registered nurse currently working in pediatric homecare - visit cases and in-home nursing care of kids many of whom in years past would have been institutionalized or hospitalized longer for their needs. During the summer I took time off and worked at a camp mission in northeastern PA which hosts foster and underprivileged children and teens from NYC. Five busloads of kids come in at a time. It was a high just working with these incredible kids for their ten-day stays. I loved every exhausting minute of it. Hope to do it again next summer. The camp is nearby Mountain Laurel where Rat Dog just played last Sat. night, Aug. 18th. Fabulous show. This venue is only a few years old (built where an old resort used to be) but folks, this show topped ticket sales with 9,500 concert goers, more than they've had yet for any other band. Second highest was for Crosby, Stills & Nash a couple of years ago. Hope they'll invite Bob and his band back next year, and sure hope they'll come! They started for The Allman Brothers. The huge parking lot there is extended by acres and acres of grassy fields all around - filled up!
I work for a Telecommunications contractor in PA. My job setup the signal levels on the forward and return paths then certify the plant to the systems and FCC specs. This job means alot of traveling and looking forward to the Grateful Dead channel on Sirrus to help pass the miles.
I work in the travel/timeshare sales industry. Good $, but it sucks being the pushy, salesman type guy.

Hi brothers and sisters, I'm a lighting technician working as second head electrician for the Opéra de Montréal, l'Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and LesGrands Ballets Canadiens. Great job, lots of hours and very instructive in all manners. See you!

Also work for the railroad. I get to move locomotives and get them ready for the crews to pick up. Not a day goes by that I don't think of a dead song at work...
