    Me too. High school, I mean. But I’m tyring to get a lifeguard job this summer. Which I don’t know how that’s going to turn out since the working age has been moved to 18, in some places here, or so I’ve heard. But darn it, I need a job and do not want to get a working permit! Such limits…

    I am an illustrator and graphic designer, I’ve been doing it for a decade. it started as a hobby, and ended up as my career. I have worked as a head designer of local magazines, illustrating school books, done book covers and interiors, logos, advertisement, posters. That is one of the reasons I believe I got into Scott’s (Overlord Sigler) work; graphic design requires long hours sitting, and it was perfect to be able to listen to podcasts.

    All day, they tell me what they want to know, I find it, I will either put it into a "dialer job" or pivot out the needed numbers and send it on up the line.  I just do what they tell me to.  I listen to podio books all day while I’m working, unless I’m hungover like this morning, and stay home.

    It is amazing what some company concepts of DBA’s (Database Administrator) are. What we encompass is a bunch of MBA’s thinking they can use point and click to create a UBER database without knowing the mechanics behind them. When they finally come to the conclusion that they don’t know SHIT about systems integration is where I come in. Oh!

And then I find them and I move slowly up toward them (long line, why does everyone have to get Munchkins when I’m in line?) and then I get to her or sometimes him and I reach for her or sometimes him and whisper “Can I have a regular, sweet and light?” Her/His hand comes back, covers her/his mouth, she/he stifles a scream (Yawn) and begs, “Please, anything else?” I can’t help myself. I can’t. “Munchkin.” And then, and then its over. Sated, and I get back to my car, and I start cruising.

I asked him if he knew where it was and he said yes. Well my customer calls about an hour later and asks why the driver has not shown up yet. This customer is only 30 min from our terminal. I’m a little perplexed and use my best dispatch answer of “My driver called 10 min ago and had some mechanical problems I’m sending the next available driver” lol. Not even 10 min later my driver calls me and says “I’m here in Barrie, Ontario where do I need to go?”. I had to pass the phone off to one of the other dispatchers because I was laughing so hard

    I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta. In a nutshell, I teach chronically suicidal people how to manage their emotions so that they no longer attempt suicide or engage in any kind of self-injury. I’m in private practice and don’t take insurance, which allows me to shell out some bucks from time to time to keep up my habit.

    part time telemarketing, I am that annoying person that calls you when you’re trying to concentrate on the really intense, bloody, violent parts of Scotts stories. Sorry….

    I work for the county government so I get all the good holidays off! I moved closer to work so my commute isn’t as long, so my Sigler fixes last over more days! If it weren’t for these good drugs, I’d have bazookaed the hell outta I-35 by now!

    Do you have any flex in your curriculum to add/use something like PodCasting, or is it pretty much fixed?

    I program, interface with clients, and tell people what to do every chance I get. We are a small company with a focus on the financial industry and specifically hedge funds.

    We are based in West Palm Beach, FL and are always looking to hire developers and programmers – drop me a line if you’re interested :D

    I work for a large outsourcing company running IBM mainframes in the UK. Audio dramas like Scott’s used to keep me sane on the drive home, though now I work from home it gets me through washing up and clearing the kitchen instead.

    Actually, Scott is the reason I get paid. I’m the creator of the “TRI-EYE PENDANTS”!!
    Scott had the Earth-crushing idea to market these bad boys on his new site. And I’m sure you all want to help Scott to take over the world by showing your support and buying a TRI-EYE PENDANT today!! This is but a taste of what’s to come. Pendants from each book have been designed and are due to be released by Christmas. Collect all of them and you too can say, ” I WAS THERE WHEN SCOTT TOOK OVER THE WORLD!!!!!!!! “

    I’m finishing up the last of three painful years as a law student in Texas. So I pay for my Sigler fix through student loans, with the occasional influx of cash as a library clerk. But one day soon I plan to aid Sigler in his world domination through copyright, trademark, and overall ass-kicking litigation.

    I am currently unemployed, I am trying to get back into my degree field of Microbiology. It sucks cause I live in Michigan where there are no jobs. I spent the last 4 years not working in my degree field, partly because I couldn’t find a job in Michigan in microbiology and partly because I couldn’t leave Michigan due to an ailing family member. That restriction is gone since said family has more or less recovered. I am finding it very difficult to find a job right now though. Alot of the jobs posted on Monster and the like seem to be temp to hire positions and most of your temp agencies only want to hire local candidates because they don’t pay relocation. Almost have to move to the areas where the jobs are and then hope you get lucky. I am debating going back to school, maybe an Environmental Engineering degree and combine the Microbiology and EnvE into alternative fuels/bioremediation career.

    I have to extend a big thanks to a man who works for a living. Yes, I go to a job, and do stiff all day, and put up with stress, but truckers get to actually see the product of doing something.

    Thanks, man.

    I work as a Systems Admin for a small manufacturing company in Alberta, Canada. Basically, if it has to do with technology, it falls under my jurisdiction here.

    It’s an alright job, though my eyes are always on the lookout for other opportunities. Although, one nice thing about my job is that it’s a desk one, so I can get my fixes in the comfort of my office chair. :D

    I was an Electrical Engineering student at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, until I heard my first podcast. Since then, I swithed to Rad. Tech., to try to use X-rays to find where all the Sigler drugs go. Then I can pull them out of my patients while they are asleep and get a secondary fix during the week.

    I wish I was an antibody, and you were a bacterium, then I could blow you away with my completments.

    I am an engineering student at Boston University so that basically means that I am perpetually broke and doing something incredibly geeky. I do have a work study on campus but that money mainly goes towards supporting my gundam addiction …as well as paying for the random fees that pop up to try and take me down. But usually I have the power of persuasion enough to get others to contribute capital towards the future Sigler nation to my benefit.
