Owdlad and his occupation. What do you tell people?

Recommended Posts

I often read owdlad's posts. Some of them are very amusing. I checked on his profile and he states his Occupation as a "retired goosbury shaver".:hihi:

 

One of my younger brothers is a highly skilled electrician. He is also a biker….long hair…leathers (Leather and Simpson)……and Triumph Bonny, which he bought new and paid cash for in 1979.

 

When people ask him what is his trade/job etc…he sometimes tells them he is a road sweeper and that he is very proud of his well maintained brush and cart. :D

 

What have you told people you do for a living?

I used to tell girls that I was a shepherd. You'd be amazed how many believed me. If they did, it was great conversation maker as it fascinated them.

 

They would often ask me if I could do the special whistles, but I told them I had an electronic device that made the noises, this got me out of a tight spot as I can't whistle for the life of me.

Thanks for the compliment stevie:blush: I had the best job title in the world and I even tried to get it onto my passport, but the Customs gadgers sent it back with engineer on it. The job title was "Tool setter in a screwing shop" I jest ye not. :thumbsup:
