I've noticed that nobody really talks about what they do outside of being a pit monkey/internet fiend, so here it is, a thread about jobs!

Share with us what you do for money, what you love about it, and what you hate about it (if anything.)

I currently work in a bar at weekends, and I think it's pretty cool because people have to be nice, or they aren't getting any booze! This doesn't mean I don't have to put up with idiots though, but it definately reduces the amount of them. The only bad point, i would say, is having to wash glasses due to lack of dishwasher.

inb4pimp, etc.

TLR; What do you do for money, honey?

I work in a bar/hotel, but the people aren't generally nice like you say. There was a huge dught tonight and I got off early as a result. Madness!
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour

But heaven knows I'm miserable now

I was looking for a job and then I found a job

I clean carpets with my family (family business).

I get paid 50 bucks an hour (once you average in how long it takes to clean a whole room), but the work is sporadic. It's fun and since I'm a perfectionist (I am the one who actually cleans the carpets), we always get called back because I did such a good job the last time.
I also mow lawns and I am able to make a few bucks doing trades with guitar stuff then selling it later.
All in all, I make as much as having a part time job, but I get more spare time.
But sometimes the work is really spread out, which sucks.

I didn't mention the tossers like, some guy got a good slap tonight, and the bouncers were ready to kick the crap out of someone. The usual drama on a saturday night.

I work at an ice cream parlor, its $8.75 an hour but when you add in the tips it's easily $12 an hour on good nights. I'm actually in the middle of an 8-day streak without any days off.

I'm such a goddamn slave.

I work at a Drug/Grocery store. It kind of sucks. I don't get paid much and I have to work my ass off. The customers are all old grumpy people. The only good thing about my job is that I work with a lot of cool people.
