The Daily Nut (your way of making a living)

Post by Aloysius_of_Tahiti »

To step up and spill my own beans, I refinish discarded furniture and sell it at a decent profit, and I also do freelance writing (marketing and sales writing, mostly, and it pays decent but it leaves me feeling slimy, which is why furniture refinishing comes in handy) and my ultimate goal is to become a gov'ment employee...at least those folks have insurance and pensions and so on (I'm US, which makes me pretty jumpy about health insurance).

So anyway, if it's not too obtrusive, how do you guys make your daily nut? If you'd rather not say, I understand.

having recently dropped out of my degree course I will shortly be leaving for liverpool, to help renovate houses, and in doing so, learn how to do most of the repairs and maintenance on the houses, along with keeping accounts and all the other stuff that goes with it. Will be working for my dad, who I suppose is best described as some sort of slumlord, and rents housing to the government for the housing of asylum seekers and recent immigrants, though increasingly we are trying to rent to normal folk, as the requirements for their housing are less, although the income isn't always as reliable

You build beer dispensers?

If you could have built beer dispensers in Afghanistan, that part of the world would be calmer...although the Youtube antics of newly inebriated youth would explode.

I run a metal testing lab for the government and I also own and maintain several rentals. Up until the baby came I always bartended on the side as well.

I stack cases on pallets at a cake mix plant to get them ready for shipping. At the plant I work in, we make cake mixes, cookie mixes, biscuit/scone mixes, pancake/crepe/waffle mixes, etc., mostly store brand stuff (just about every major chain in the U.S. and Canada has contracted with us, along with a few Latin American and European exporters), but we do some name brand stuff, too.

I applied at a place like that once. The tour through the plant damn near killed me.
Being allergic to nuts is a real bitch sometimes. I don't even know what they had that had nuts in it. All I remember is the projectile vomiting.
I did it. I know I did it. Prolly going to do it again.

I'm living off the money I made working for Wall St. bankers. I'll be claiming SS bennies next summer, too. I don't do anything but eat, sleep, read, workout and last but not least drink. Don't have the desire to travel because it's too dangerous if you drink like I do.
