    I am currently trying to finish uni, and go back to a certain car company that i did my internship at and adored... So for money at the moment, I'm the weekend duty manager of a local Woolies. The job isn't THAT bad (very, very boring though) but the hours suck. I work every weekend till midnight or later, and only get 1 friday off in 4. Wouldn't be so bad if my mates and my wife didn't all have full time jobs at the moment, meaning that they are only free on weekends...

    I guess we haven't done one of these in a while...

    I'm a tyre/wheel man. Currently I'm working for an importer of wheels and tyres in internal sales.

    A telecommunications technician on paper, although I spend far too much of my time with grease and refined minerals on my hands to take the paper at face value; I am in electronics though, some instrumentation and some general repairs.
