What Do You Do For a Living? - Page 8

post #106 of 474
What I do: Young lawyer working his rear off for the fat cat partners.

What I wish I was doing; Back in high end men's clothing; the only place a boy like me can be truly happy. Problem is every second week when you get the paycheque. That, and working commission makes you hate your co-workers. That was never fun.

My wife told me to get a real job. Now I have one and blow my cash on clothes anyway. The more things change... Poor woman had no idea when she agreed to marry me.

I have given it a thought more than once...
Actually, some years ago I was about to apply for a position at Ladas&Parry, who were looking for a European Patent Attorney for their New York office.
But just at that time I got a new job here in Madrid, improving my working conditions substantially. And if you have a decent job, Spain is not a bad place to live. And the food is excellent. At present, I am just hoping for the real estate prices to drop so that I can get a decent flat.

It is not a doctored pic, but rather, a friendly dolphin:

Commercial real estate broker, representing buyers/sellers/lessors/lessees of all manner of commercial properties -- retail, office, industrial, investment, development, land. Very cool career, you work your tail off but the sky's the limit on income. I love being in sales; it's upbeat, results-focused, people-oriented. And I get to dress like my avatar. I must spend a good quarter of my take on the clothing, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've given instructions to my support staff that if they see me go a couple of weeks without wearing something new, to please check my pulse.

I'm pretty sure it is.
I've solved my "decent flat" problem by renting. The profits I make from the "apartment buying money" I invested cover a large part of the yearly rent, so I see no point into buying smaller at the actual price point.
To answer the original thread, I'm the business continuity and operational risks manager in a retail bank.

Actually I was quoting Dave Barry. I am a professional bullshitter and liar. In other words I am in advertising and communications. Edited: Communicashuns Expirt Kan't Spayle

It really is fairly obvious, the pectoral fins are much too far up the body, while the dorsal is too angular, and the tail silhouette appears to be the wrong shape for a shark.

When you're sitting on a surfboard in the water, it's only a dark shadow, and whatever it is can move a lot faster than you. Add the distortion of the water, and you just react viscerally. That's how I see that picture. What it appears to be on careful inspection is more or less irrelevant when looking at this as a surfer.

Of course, once you know the pic was taken at Malibu, that pretty much rules out anything like a great white or tiger shark.

Chiba is the closest place to Tokyo where you can surf and it's a nice getaway from the urban environment now and then. There are always waves, but the surf tends to be small and not too powerful in most places. Lots of good longboarding waves, but most of the time there's not enough power to get me going on a shortboard. Mostly thick waves with shallow faces that throw over suddenly when they hit the inside sandbar. There are some good spots, though.

How about down near Kamakura? I remember seeing a lot of surfing going on down there.
