Just interested in what other SP members do for the cash.

Since I'm still in high school, I work at Zaxbys. Nothing like minimum wage bullshit.

I'm in highschool as well, Grade 11. I work at a local public library and make more than minimum wage ($11.17/hr). It's boring as shit but really easy. How many hours a week do you guys work?

Work for a real estate company that buys foreclosed houses. I'm paid to go to the auctions and bid with cashiers checks they give me. I go to one in the morning at 9am and than another at 1pm and I usually have a few hours in between to go home and chill/jack off on the clock until I go to the final auction at 1 which sometimes I don't even have to go to. Work about 20-25 hours a week at $14/hour plus $276 every 2 weeks for gas. I love this shit.

Im an electronics technician at Archer Well. I repair, test, build/fabricate MWD tools and everything related to them. I love my job. I work with cool ass people, build cool shit, am constantly learning and my boss is super lenient with me because i know my stuff. Heres a picture I have of my bench. Its not usually this cluttered but since im part time it become a place to throw things..

I worked my ass off last year working full time+ as a machinery rigger in Detroit. I also traveled around a lot for work which sounds nice at first but living in hotel rooms gets old. I learned a lot though and came out as a much more handy man. That was my first year out of high school. Now I'm in university.

I'm a stock trader, and hopefully will be licensed as a financial adviser (which I basically already do anyway) around Feb.-March, maybe earlier depending on when the exams are offered. Formerly worked in restaurants, briefly sold cars, and had a freelance personal training business I decided to retire from. I guess I would also consider myself a semi-pro gambler, seeing as a percentage of my income is derived from being an extremely successful sports gambler, but most of that $$$$ goes into what I invest anyway. I may be getting a job with a think tank, but nothing is set in stone yet.

You should launder money through Milton McDaniels.

Never heard of him. I would never steal from the government anyway, especially with Obama as president and all the racism he faces daily regarding the Affordable Care Act. I want that money to go to helping Obama continue all his progress, because that means my money is helping the whole country.

 

And if this is some cruel/sick/disgusting remark about your company's forecast, do keep in mind:

 

Everything was going fine until the shutdown, and they never recovered from the drop it caused which I admit did surprise me. That said, I still think it'll get back to 90+ over the long term, and at least get to its pre-shutdown state sooner rather than later. I no longer can call myself .00003% of your company owner, so I can no longer claim you technically work for me (among many others of course), but even so, that little pop today is just the start. It's really hurt my ego that of all people who could have heard me overrate a stock (since it's not often), it was you, even if you forgot about that and probably didn't care anyway. If you planned on purposely working less hard just to undermine the stock value to make me look bad, don't think I haven't already thought of that and am prepared to act if I get suspicious.

Busted, once I heard you were a shareholder I purposely did a shitty job.

 

I tend not to follow their stock prices too much, it tends to piss me off more than anything. I'll get 3 dumps of it between Feb 1st and May 1st, I'll see what your outlook is then.

I work 40 hours a week at Carmax and have a full schedule at a local community college. Free time isn't really a thing for me.
