What would be your ultimate job ?

and why?

To me, a rock-n-roll superstar in the likes of Eric Clapton, Jon Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney or Bruce Springsteen would be awesome because not only do they get paid well, but they get to travel ALL over the world spreading joy and happiness through their music. They are worshipped to almost god-like status by both men and women.

I thought being an F-15, F-16 or F-22 fighter jock would be cool too, but I'm really not too fond of anti-aircraft missiles in highly-volatile combat zones. However, being a member of The Blue Angels or The Thunderbirds would be the ultimate as well.

What's yours ?

Lightbulb What

Was pretty happy with my jobs during my lifetime sofar.
Grew up during the F-104 times (did not fly it).
Was just an Air Traffic Controller, later Pilot, Farmer and Business guru. That was enough. Was all over the world I wanted to see and now I just see the rest of North Amerika, that I mist in my former lifetime?

I would not change the career I had. I was able to change responsibilities about 4 times in 38 years. Traveled the world and was able to take the wife every now and then on FF miles. I had mostly really sharp people working for me. Managed to take the kids around the USA (lower 48 states), in a coach, before they went to college. Learned a bunch about different countries and cultures along the way. Now I'm very comfortable showing the Gkids the USA before they go to college.

But I'm all about the quality of the threads, not the quantity.

I tried the musician thing. I'm a bass player. I was in a band that made it to mid-level status...recording contract, videos, yada yada yada...it's a LOT harder than people know. I'm sure by the time an artist gets to the level of Clapton, etc it would get a LOT easier. But getting there is almost impossible. You pretty much have to be rich to begin with these days to go anywhere at all.

We worked 2nd and 3rd jobs to get to the level we made it to, and even then we just didn't have enough money to keep going.

People think a recording contract means you've made it...it's just not true. A recording contract is analogous to a high interest bank loan...then the company owns everything you do...and every cent you make.

I'd like a job where you start at 12, get off at 1, get an hour off for lunch, and make $1000 a day.

I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

Plumbers protect the health of the nation!

I was a Licensed Master Plumber and left a lot of fine plumbing and heating systems behind me. I am proud of my work and would do it all over again.

Besides, when I called the guy to fix a frozen pipe on the weekend, the $200 bill for the 10 minutes he was in my house put his wage at $1,200 an hour.

"Mister, I'm a 767 captain for the world's biggest airline and I only make $160 an hour," I exclaimed.

He patted me on the shoulder, looking sympathetic.

"I feel your pain. Back when I was a 767 captain, that's all I made, too."

I do not mind work but employment no so much---I retired from a great job I loved and did well---took me five minutes to adjust to retirement. Now I make furniture for whoever I want, whenever I want at my pace------don't take a nickle for any of it-----gee I love this "job".

PS: my youngest daughter is buying a home---she needs a china cabinet so that's my job ---I deliver as well to Ohio---nice RV trip in there somewhere---am I a lucky guy or what???
