    Marine Engineer, anything that does something on a boat, we're responsible for it. Prime movers (engines), electrical generation and distribution, electronics, fresh water generation, management of fuel, pumping systems, compressed air, sewage etc... Usually only 2 of us so pretty busy when I'm at sea!

    Software
    I work in cubicle-land
    It sucks. The cubicle-land part, not the software part.
    Lollers, I heard that's a scam, and they just write down what they said after the fact so that there is indeed a script. They literally write themselves. So you are really a copyist who takes dictation.

    Have you found any yet? I hope your other job supports you, if you get paid by the zombie.

    We have a zombie food truck here in DC. I was of course immediately drawn to them, but they actually make really great pho, so I am a repeat customer.

    I seem to have gone from high stress work to high stress work, which leads me to conclude that I simply am a guy who gets stressed out over things that other people find less stressful.

    I dunno why.

    There there. You have your guitars. And music is a nice outlet.

    No, seriously, you have my sympathies. I used to have a guy in my apartment complex who was frequented daily by his parole officers (he went through several). I felt really bad for the parole officer. One time, he wasn't there, and that's the last we heard of him.

    I'd go on a long walkabout, like an aborigine in the outback, speak with your soul & the spirit, come home, strum a few on your PRSi.............

    ........and consider a career change.

    i'm a professional buyer (purchaser). i'm going over the security clothing, office supplies and paper, catering, subscriptions, and every little thing my collueges can ask for (going from "i need this kind of pen, it looks like this, no i don't have any mark or type, but i saw a picture once on the internet..." over to power drills and tools), together with the accompanied paperwork and invoices.
    besides that i'm also responsible for the customer services (again the catering, post handeling, distribution of everything i buy) and some of the technical services (mostly the coffee machines and the likes that make people like to come in at work in the morning). i'm also responsible for the internal moves (whether in our main office or in between one of our 35 railroad construction sites throughout the country)
    a lot of differten things on my plate, every day a new problem to solve.

    unfortunately it's a constant fight against saving money while for other things money is thrown out of the window. the biggest project this year: doing the study for changing our entire office (design, furniture, colors of paint on the wall,...) pretty challenging
