    What does everyone do?

    Just like it says, what do you do for a living. I am sure we know about some of you but others we may not. I work for ADM at a sun flower processing plant. I work maintenance so I get all of the fun jobs. Matthew

    And then, after so much work...... you have it in your hand, and you look over to your side...... and the runner has run off. Leaving you holding the prize, wondering when the runner will return.

    Re: What does everyone do?

    Six weeks ago I quit my dead-end job to freelance write full time. I will never look back!

    A while back I tried to run my own Mobile Welding company, but I don't think I put enough effort into it, and it seemed that every single request that I got was for aluminum or something completely insane, neither of which I am willing to do.
