what do you do for a living?



I am a 3rd grade teacher and love having my summers to use my Garmin.

Paramedic (7:00pm - 7:00am)

I use it every night while at work to get to peoples homes. Even on the best of nights under optimal conditions it is difficult to see the street signs in the area I work. I found it to be an invaluable tool.

Systems Designer

Well the actual title is Programmer/Systems Analyst: eComm/Finance, but I seem to always be making new tools, or rewriting old ones from scratch.

Hey Fluxuated..

Hang in there Fluxuated, you work for a solid brand so you'll be OK if you have any sort of tenure.

I've been in the car biz for 40 years retail, wholesale, & mfr and end of year/beginning of year has always been the low spot in both sales & service. The economy makes it much worse this season, but Toy ain't goin' NOWHERE but up. You picked a solid winner.

What DO I Do For A Living

What I do for a Living

Yeah, been retired for a while. Was a boat captain
in the Gulf of Mexico oil field for about 20 years, before that was an industrial research librarian for a top 50 Fortune 500 company. I had a doozy of a midlife crisis.

And, after being divorced for 32 years, about 3 years ago I married my college sweetheart--just 50 years after we were supposed to get married.

I Wish,

I started as a Land Surveyor for a small engineering firm. I stayed in that field (35 years) until I retired five years ago as the City Engineer for a small Municipality. I think what my life would have been, if I could have had the use of a GPS in my work years.

That sounds a lot like my Dad. At age 58, married his college sweetheart, a wonderful lady. I asked her once why they didn't get married after college. "He never ASKED me!" Guess he was a little shy back then. Duuhhh.

wandering musician

though not nearly as much with the wandering since the nuvi 760. i'm currently with the 1st national tour of the show Jersey Boys, and with all the different cities i have to navigate to (i decided to drive rather than fly around to explore a little), the 760 is a godsend. it's like having someone sitting next to you who knows where EVERYTHING is. i've had it in action for exactly one week, and it's already paid for itself by getting me from nj to pittsburgh, without a hitch, in lousy weather to boot.

thanks for the site. keep up the great work.

Field service engineer

Electronics manufacturing equipment...hmmm Garmin uses our machines come to think of it.

I love being retired. My wife asked me, "What you doing today?"

I replied, "Nothing."
She said, "You did that yesterday."
I said, "I wasn't finished."

I do the above 5 days a week. On Saturdays and Sundays I do what a lot of other do, I am off.

Also, I get unpaid Holidays throughout the year, plus unplanned vacations are once or twice a year.

Overall, pretty good lifestyle.

Best job ever

I'm a retired Fiber Optic Tech. Sounds more impressive than it really is, I changed out the module with the red light and painted lines on the railroad right-of-way.

Now my wife and I have a video production company. We mostly do weddings and parties. It's the best job I've ever had, I get paid to party.

My neighbor asked my why I got up so early. I told him I had so much sitting around to do that I had to get an early start to get it all done.
