I’m work as the manager for a meduim sized home health agency. Which means I hire, fire, act as patient laison, scheduler, hr person, and provide psych support to clients and
employees. Basically, it’s just me and the owner in the office. Mostly it’s just me in the office. Mostly, I do everything.

But I can bring my dog to work and I’m currently wearing a CRAMPS t-shirt!!!!!

No wonder Jack has so much spare time. lol

JackAdams's avatar


In other words you run the company, while the owner steals all the credit.

I bet if you left, he would be totally helpless. LOL

@ JackAdams she would be helpless yes….she’s my entry under ‘high mantainence” ppl. She in NYC shopping, right now, probably bitching because it’s raining there like mad. I’ve known her for ages; her son and my daughter went to day care together since they were 5. I came to work for her about 5 years ago, when her manager quit and I was getting flack for having purple hair at the ‘corporate’ job. It’s a good match, cause she’s never here!

Forgot to mention, my part time job: I produce all ages shows in the area. Mostly industrial type music shows, with a horror theme. We also do stuff like body suspension and other forms of oddity art forms. I’m on a bit of a haitus now tho. Won’t do another show till next spring.

I work at a food processing plant in the quality control department. I work in the labeling department of QC. I create and print labels for all the products we produce. We make frozen fish products like fish sticks and battered/breaded fish portions as well as natural fillets. I also maintain all product specifications and handle any labeling issue like nutritional information/product descriptions. bla bla bla

Now we know why you have the nickname you do.

I really LOVE fish sticks!

So what nice things do I have to say to you, to get some coupons? LOL

I am a goat herder, connecting via satphone to my ISP. I work high in the mountains of Nevada. Or maybe Utah. Sometimes I’m geographically challenged, which, as you might imagine, is not so good in my profession around wrangling time.

sccrowell's avatar

No, not tiffanys, Bailey, Banks and Biddle. Designer of the Purple Heart Medal, Silver Star Medal, both of which were offered to Tiffany’s but after multible attempts, were designed by BBB AND something most people have in their wallets, pockets or purses. Can you guess?

sccrowell's avatar

uber, would they be the eating kind or the ones thaare in tanks bowls and so on?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Id be a bit weird if i worked at a store that sold the fish for the eats and then did some volunteer work at the aquarium no?

Though your not the first and definitely not the last to ask that question. They are the kind for fish tanks. Our store is actually pretty big we have 600+ tanks in there.

May I offer you much good luck with that?

I’m sure you will have much success, and I wish you well.

tWrex's avatar

Thanks Jack… I’ve already begun my studies because I’ve been out of school so long.I’m just hoping that it’s gonna be enough.

I’m an education consultant and I also coordinate services for pregnant and parenting high school students in California…I also bake, mostly pies right now.

cyndyh's avatar

@tWrex: My mom went to college more than 20 years after graduating high school. She was scared about whether she could handle it. She worked hard and even got an A in algebra even though math was never a strong subject for her. She got her degree in 4 years time. When you go back as an older student you have more discipline and patience for the studying you know you need to do. You’ll do fine, too.

tWrex's avatar

@cyndyh Thanks… I really appreciate that. And I definitely agree with you about the discipline. Last time I was in school my life was falling apart and I had a death wish that I almost got granted so this time it won’t be quite so dramatic. =) Thank you again.

Nimis's avatar

tWrex: Besides discipline, I’ve also found that most continuing students also have a better appreciation for school as well. So they not only tend to do well, they also tend to get more out of it.
Good luck with your studies!

tWrex's avatar

@Nimis Thanks. I really appreciate all the good vibes people keep sending my way. I really am feeling it. So thanks everyone for all of your thoughts. You guys rawk!
