Default what do you do?

It seems the drivers of PT's are very diverse.
What do you do for a living and if you are retired, what did you do.

I deal with Home Builders and contractors at the Pro-desk for Home Depot.
I've been in this business for about 10 years, first with Lowes Home Improvement Centers.

How about you.

I work as a VP/Operations for a Display and Graphics company. Live in Wilmington, NC. My cruiser is an '02 Patriot Blue Classic Edition. Have added 16" Prime chrome wheels, Continental extreme contact tires, mud flaps, color keyed & logo floor mats, K&N drop in filter, power door locks with remote, Weatherguard vent visors and most recently a Sirius satelite radio.
Enjoy my PT a lot. It's not fast, but looks like it is.

I retired in 1995 due to medical disability.
I was servicing computers on a government contract that maintained over 6000 line items, and had been doing so for a few years.

I have also worked at the retail level in a major computer chain, been Service Manager for IBM, Apple, Compaq warranty and service at the same store, while also wearing the hats of Systems Engineer and Novell CNE.

I have independently contracted for computer repair, installation and communications systems, and operated a DOS-Based (dial-up) Bulletin Board System (BBS) from the mid 80s until the mid 90s (when the Internet became popular).

My jobs were computer oriented from the mid 80s to the 1995.

Before that, I have worked in the automotive field at the port level in A/C installation, Yard Utility, Ship Discharge. At the time they went out of business, I was in charge of Parts and Warranty MIS at the local port for Yugo of America (everybody have a good laugh now).

At other points in my life I have been in Automotive Service (tune-ups, cruise controls, car stereo, front-end repair, exhaust, tires, batteries and charging systems), Sales (stereo, appliance, electonics), Parts (auto and motorcycle), Motorcycle assembly and prep fopr sale for local Honda dealer, purchasing (industrial and retail), hotel-motel-resturant (management, audit, dishwasher, waiter, cook and prep), grocery (bagboy, floor maintenance, produce, stocking, cashier, bakery etc.) and last but not least I had one acting job in a lead-supporting movie role.

While in college, I worked lights and sound for the college theatrical group, while maintaining the Carbon-Arc Spotlights used for concerts and touring shows. During this time, I had the opportunity to work with some of the larger groups and off broadway shows of the early to mid 70s, as I was also in charge of providing operators to work the groups and shows that the college booked.

I could have had a better retirement if I had worked at the same place for 30 years, but would have a lot less stories to tell and a lot less experience in other fields.

My 2002 Touring edition was the first new car I ever bought (late 2001) at age 48. I purchased my 2003 GT (early 2003) a few months before my 50th year. Life is good... (I am also known for writing long replies)
