So what does everyone do for a living?

I am the district manager for a high pressure pumping company in Texas, we service oil and gas well when they complete the drilling and prepare them for production.

I'm a project engineer for a General Contractor (Builder).  we typically build big warehouse type buildings, but also have installed a lot of Solar work.  My current project is a new building for an aerospace company that makes lots of parts for airplanes (Boeing is their largest customer).   In a few weeks, I'll be working on-site for this project, and it will be my home for the next 13 months.

here's some past projects I worked on:

Bet mines the only job involving whatever i do gets walked all over everyday.
Yep thats right I'm a flooring contractor installing new floors in those mortgaged houses those software engineers offices and those dormatory units for those rig workers blah blah blah.
Basically anything to do with flooring I'm your guy, very much a family tradition going back to the 1800's at the birth of Lino.
For me it started when I was 14 during school hols and weekends and still going at 42.
Right now my biggest client is Heathrow airport where every night you'll find me somewhere over there installing new flooring to worn out areas.
At the moment we are doing a phased replacment of T5 airbridges and bridge heads those things that connect to the plane allowing passangers to board from the terminal.
An when its cold outside its @#$% well freezing in these things.

Im a Quality Assurance Engineer at a small DOD contractor supplying manufactured to print parts. We do everything from aircraft parts, tank parts, some howitzer parts and even food service parts.

One of our 4oo hundered currently open contracts is the muzzle clamp on the GAU-8/A(the nasty gun on the Warthog).


What boddiebagger calls losing a gun fight means, killing the opposing team 3 times over and dying once.
