    I've been a teacher for 27 years - 16 years teaching grades 7-9 and the last 11 years teaching Social Studies in one of Western Canada's largest high schools. It's been an awesome way to spend 27 working years but I am looking forward to retirement in about 3 years!

    do not speak English and I rely on google ...:(

    perhaps it mistranslated ...

    I had horses female
    and I was selling their young

    disturbing is that I put my hands
    in dark places
    in order to have small horses :D

    Since I like meat
    I also worked in the butcher
    to learn how to kill my animals

    more sad when I had to shoot a horse

    because he had broken his back falling off a cliff

    do not worry ... I realized that joking ..
    to offend would you steal my wife, eat my pork, and burn my house ...
    but since I do not have any of that .... it's hard to offend.
    You're right, I did the astronaut, but I left it in his will written that my ashes be sent into space.
    Are Protestant and my confession lay people can say Mass ....
    then I did the priest ...
    I changed jobs many times, and sometimes did more work at the same time that many of them have forgotten



    still excuse to English if it is not correct

    This has to be one of the most riveting reads, brilliant.

    Thought I'd put my tanners worth:

    Trained as a decorator, got bored then done some plastering and tiling, joined the forces back in 77 and came out in 80 ( worst decision of my life coming out ) returned to plastering, worked in the Ascension Islands for the BBC plastering for a short period, 17 years ago started back to tiling as well and still doing it, tiles are getting to the size of 900x1.800x5.6mm thick now.

    Going to be 60 this year maybe time for a slower pace of works.

    I also turn 60 but in a few day's. I joined the Army in 1971 and left in 1978, hence the nickname (1st Bn Royal Anglian Regt) I joined the Metropoitan police in the same year and became involved with the firearms teams. Left in 1992 due to an injury on duty, cracked some bone in my lower back. I have since worked with garden machinery, delivery driver and now work part time, which pays for the hobby.
    Got a masters degree at the school of hard knocks, Lol.

    Have spent the last 26 years in the paint & coatings industry. Currently National Logistics Manger responsible for Supply Chain and Inventory.

    Partly because of my low tolerance for idiots and the fact I work at Head Office my other un-official title is " Sherriff of Bullshit Castle" - which is probably more accurate.

    Well what an interesting bunch, any brain surgeons?
    Well I've also had itchy feet at times.
    Builders labourer
    Drinks waiter/Bar work
    Sold ceramic tiles
    Storeman
    Delivery driver
    Freelance commercial art/illustrator
    Cleaner.
    Have been currently working as a assistant in nursing neuro ward and now an ordely(got sick of showering patients)as well as running a little business on the side here and there with the wife teaching art to school kids. Along the way have helped been a dad and husband to five beautiful girls. I had to mention that last part. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm going to be stuck in this hospital gig for another twenty odd years unfortunately. So here's where this part kicks in, because the decision to finally commit to this hobby will probably save me from being committed in another way.
    Many thanks to PF and all the people on here.
    Regards
    Chris.
