Well you could, but when I see "Lineman", I think of the fellas I've seen outside my house risking electrocution in a pouring rain so that I will be able watch TV after dinner.

I know exactly what you face every day, and have tremendous respect for the litany of details you have to consider before ever getting out of your truck.

Lineman.

Before taking early retirement 4 years ago I was an Internal Audit Director at a couple large multinational corporations (auto, ag, construction, plus peripheral subsidiary companies).

Fun thread

Though a commercial pilot-- having kids made me realized that I don't want to travel so far from home. After a wonderful stint as a full time father I found work at our local art museum where they call me a "Preparator". The monetary sacrifices have been painful but while my boys still want me around I'll never give up riding bikes to school in the morning and visiting them for pizza Fridays.

I'm the Fleet Manager and Driver for a local Meat, Seafood, and Provisions Supplier here in South Central Pennsylvania. I drive a delivery truck every day and spend a lot of other time keeping track of the maint., insurance, driver reports, D.O.T. reports, inspections, safety regulations, fuel tax logs, and any other facet that deals with our fleet. Including running the trucks too and from service appointments, and keeping all of the drivers from ruining the $80k trucks. Researching all new truck purchases, and supervising the building of a specialized refrigerated truck, which usually takes about 6 months to complete after it's ordered.

I'm only 24 so I have a long way to go before I can retire. At the rate that the company I work for is growing, in a few years my Fleet Management responsibilites will become a full time position and I'll be weened off of the road.

Exclamation Hardest job in the world

I'm a night RN on a med/surg floor, working three nights a week. My husband is a teacher in a private school. But by FAR the hardest job we have is raising the six children. Talk about a lot of work The laundry, homework, cooking, baseball, basketball, dance, doctor's appointments, dental appointments,bill paying, baths, cleaning, birthday parties, taxiing,toddler-chasing---it never ends! People are always asking me, "How do you work outside the home and have six chidren?" and I always respond, "I don't know how anybody with this many children can handle NOT working outside the home!!" Work is my break. We are far from retirement but do look foward to some major road trips (especially one to AK in a few summers) with all the kids over the next few years. My husband is driving to MN (from NH) with all the kids this summer to visit his family for a month while I stay here and work (hey, somebody has to finance his travels <g>) What a man!!!

Tom, I think I have you by a couple of years. I started repairing cars and trucks in 1972, back before the ASE existed...
I work for a very large tire manufacturing company, and auto repair shop. I have several other titles, which do nothing to put food on the table, but sound impressive when you spout them off to other folks. Senior technician (I'm the oldest guy still doing this in my district), Safety coordinator, Equipment supervisor, and warranty claim auditer.

I worked as a printer from 1971 to 1999 when I was no longer needed as a printer I transferred to the art department and work until 2003 as a graphic designer. I retired in 2003. Early.
Tom was a mechanic for the DOT eventually working for the DOT commissioner until his retirement in 2002.
Today we winter in Georgia and spend summers in our Airstream in Colorado.
I cook, clean and wrangle cats.
