    I'd disagree, working for yourself can be more lucrative than employed, done so for years & always proved to me to be far better & more satisfying than having a boss, the biggest bummer though is the money chasing, dont have patients anymore for that, now I say pay up or lose your services, simplesssssssssssss

    The other guys on here make my life feel so boring haha!

    My favourite bit? Paying massive cheques in

    Worst bit - chasing the money

    This thread is just one big excuse to try and show off!

    Name the ONE thing you love about your job...... yet most of you have started banging on about loads of things.
    And more importanly... it's fact or fiction in how many cases, I ask???

    At the risk of sounding like I'm joining your 'little men with small dicks and big mouths and egos' club.... in fact, nope, won't even bother explaining what it is I do because it really is almost too good to be true.

    Take a look at yourselves plebs, read your posts and see how it comes across.
    If you are one of the braggers I'm talking about (I'm sure you know who you are) I dare u to show your wife/girlfriends what you have written, and watch their reaction!

    Muhahhahaha.

    I actually get to work in a Rolls Phantom.

    I have two people sat either side of me that do all my dirty work.

    All I do is; once a week point my finger and say "YOUR FIRED"!!

    Rolls Phantom? Pah! Peasant...

    I go in a Bugatti Veyron. I only have one sat next to me but if he does anything wrong I don't even have to say "You're Fired". I just push the ejector seat button!

    That's better guys. Turn this thread into the joke it should be!

    What a waste of time.
    Can't believe people think its a good idea to come on here and tell all "ooooh my job is so great blah blah blaaaaaaah!"
    Losers!!

    PS: in case you're wondering, my job is to serve and protect gotham city. My business car fires bullets and goes very fast, sometime even upside down.
    But don't tell anyone.

    Nope, the car is still a car and still in one piece. What you speak of were merely special effects.

    I have no job so I wake up at 7am, make my 22yr old large breasted blondish GF her breakfast then slap her on the arse as she goes to work, I do drips and drabs of agency work and some cash in hand stuff for friends. I like going to the gym when its quiet then I go into town to the job centre then end up in Wetherspoons for a couple of hours. I left school with pretty much nothing but I have done ok for myself and worked abroad for a few years, kind of regret it now though with the job market the way it is...

    I'd recommend any young un's reading this if your still at home with your parents and your job isnt really the sort of thing you want to spend the rest of your life doing, go back to college or do a course at the local tech. :o)

    One thing I like: Doing what I always liked since I was 13 years old - working with computers, making them work and solving problems for people. Yes, I am a geek.

    Couldnt agree more & since the worlds being computerised more everyday then the right vocation to be in, love it as daily challenges & never gets boring, but certainly no geek & it pays bloody well mostly, depending on how far down the line you want to go.

    Definitely agree about the pay in the IT sector - it's always nice to get paid very well for doing what I always considered to be a hobby

    I am a Plant Engineer in a Maintenance department for an Aerospace company.

    There is nothing particular that I love about my job. I do like it but far from a dream job! Still learning the ropes every day!

    Love the freedom I have though and the pay is pretty good! My team is dead on too and we all can have a laugh!

    Can't believe no one has mentioned tit monday yet!

    For those of you who don't know, its when you come in after the weekend and the weather has got a bit better so the girls start wearing less, showing off their assets.
