Just curious what fellow bote players do for a living (if you are of that age).

I am a former soldier and have been a software engineer for 13 years (currently a senior manager, so not much coding anymore).

I worked at a lumberyard, then residential construction the first 16 years of my working life, now I have 20 years in at a window and door dealer. I installed for the first 2 years, then broke my finger in a car accident on the way home from work. Boss said I might as well help out in the office until I healed, and I haven't left the contractor desk since. Heck, I AM the contractor desk lol.

my first real job was related to  hidraulic cylinders and shafts,since i  finished high school and gave up on 3 University courses(thanks  to my laziness and hyperactivity),that was the path,my job was to help the  professionals  with anything,grab tools,do this and that,clean the workshop.

5 months working on it and i got injured twice,in the same leg,none of them were serious but that was the reason of why i lost my job,currently trying to find another.

sadly 5 months won't make me an amateur or professional in the field,so my future is a little uncertain,but i'm not sad or angry,all i can do is move forward.

the good thing is that i'm young,living with parents,but that will end one day.

For a moment, I thought that you'd say that you mine salt.  :Smile_trollface:      :cap_like:

 

Seriously, that would be an incredibly ironic profession to be in for anyone on this forum.
