Some of us I know are too young to generally be worried about keeping a job, or having one for that matter. but for those of us who pay the bills what is it that you do.

 

Im a jack of all trades, I run a pc review website, work at a pet store, am a published author, and part time college student.

 

while i dont get to work much, as i am disabled, I was given a fairly keen mind and so i like to use it.

 

what do you do, and why i guess as some jobs may seem boring to some but other love.

I'm a manager at a Gas Station (Pioneer Petrolums). It includes a lot of paper work and filling propane cylinders (yes I have a liscence to do it). Lemme see, the only bills I pay are car insurance, rent (to parents, I am only 18) and i include gas as a bill now because prices for gas are outragous.

 

Also, the answer to the famous question I get asked everytime I work, how much is my discount on gas? NONE.. no discount what so ever (cheap ass company)

lmao I work with my father on weekends at his shop which he is a graphic design person and he makes signs for people basically. I also cut grass, rake leaves and shovel snow for old people on my grandparents block. I am also joining the Army in which hopefully I will be an Army Ranger. Oh yeah and for the bills I pay for my family's phone bill and cell bill.

No wonder you smoke

 

 

 

I'm a Marketing and Fulfillment Manager for a financial publishing company, which means I try to sell more shit to people with too much money, even if they already buy from us. I come in at 11am and leave at 6. It's the easiest laziest job ever, and it's a small enough company that my first promotion made me a manager, now I can leave and have a padded resume, suckers.

 

However the sweet hours has made it hard for me to quit, because I don't want to be stuck in rush hour like most people.

 

Oh, but the pay sucks because they're a small company and lateral promotions have bullshit raises.
