This as a old post and thought I'd bring it back, so I'll start. I am a truck driver been driving since '92 when I got out of the Air Force. I work at a Dairy, I take trailers to milk barns, load them, bring them back for over the road drivers to deliver. I was doing good until this morning, I was loading milk and it bubbled over, there was milk every where. I had a huge mess and the guy I was loading didn't look to impressed.

My turn,

I am a Financial Aid Specialist in the Financial Aid/Veteran Affairs office at my local community college. Prior to this I did 2 years as a Veteran Affairs work study in the same office helping vets get their GI Bill setup for use towards their education.

Before that it was odd jobs here and there after getting out of the service. This "Veteran's Preference" when applying for a job is a crock unless you were in for many years and had some rank, were in some kind of a specialty job or had some kind of "depot level maintenence" knowledge on how to repair stuff.

The up side is you get to work with a office full of women. I get to look at cows being milked all night.

I don't know if it is an upside, I guess it would depend on if you were married or not. :D
