I only contribute to one other forum (a horological one) and this was an eye opening thread on there. I am electrician by trade but I hated it with a passion, I'd do anyhting to avoid picking up that freaking tool box. I work for myself now, no not as a sparky and consider myself very fortunate indeed, but before I got lucky I have been... 1. A waiter. 2. Pig farm worker. 3. Shelf stacker. 4. Electricians mate. I know, I know. 5. Security guard. 6. Salesman selling industrial energy optimisers for AC induction motors. 7. Telesales. Lasted 47 minutes. What have you done?
