Please don't tell anyone that I'm affiliated with (but not employed by!) the cable company! Ever get that recording, when you call for tech support, "This call may be monitored for quality assurance purposes..." ??? Well I'm that guy. I audit those calls. Personally I do internet connectivity and email support calls, but this is an expanding industry so someone actually *does* listen to those calls! Often I try to decide whether I should do this job one more day, or instead possibly drive nails in my pinky toe, or set myself on fire. But I'm doing the Single Dad thing and have 2 young kids, and I couldn't possibly have more flexibility for my kids... essentially I manage my work schedule around my kid schedule, instead of vice versa. So if one or both kids are sick I can have them home while I work, and I have a lot of flexibility to volunteer at their school. Which is awesome for a whole slew of reasons. So as much as I'm often tempted to take that job as a Starship Captain, or possibly that one in Amsterdam as 'Wheel Man', I keep doing this for now. But my kids will all too soon need college money, and this particular dayjob isn't putting much more than food on the table so at some point things will have to change. What's *your* day job?
