Is it really necessary to have a pimp cane or is that just a myth?

Inventory and sales supervising analyst - basically I fix all the data problems where I work, then analyze it to maximize productivity. I never thought in all my high school and college years, where BMX and Punk rock were my routine, that Id be a nerd at a desk pumping code into a computer. But Im actually pretty good at it, and it pays the bills.

Right now I'm a project manager working on an SAP implementation. Previous work includes managing an IT infrastructure group (servers, storage, and backup) , Business Intelligence architect, and way back when I was a financial analyst. Boring stuff, but I always enjoy reading what everyone else does!

It's not totally necessary, but helpful. If you pimp-slap enough hos your rings start to cut into your hands.

I do this.

Sales, service and installation of automatic and manual pedestrian doors. I started out with a regional company as a grunt in 2002, then went to a major international company as a service tech for twice the money in 2004. Found out that corporations suck and started my own business in 2006. I have a business partner that handles the sales and most of the paperwork, I take care of the technical side of it and getting the work done.

We do a lot of medical, a fair amount of retail, but we also take care of the Boeing and Bosch plants in Charleston, as well as the majority of the military installations in this area. We also take care of several pharmaceutical manufacturers.

This week was taken up by a shut down at one of the pharmaceutical plants. I HATE having to work in a clean room. Scrubs, booties, hair covers, Tyvek suit over the scrubs, double gloves, the works. Even with it being 60 degrees in there, I burn up. Since I designed and installed the entire interlock system for all their doors in 2005, they always call me. The clean room area has 32 doors all interlocked so that only one door into a room can be opened at a time including the halls. This shutdown, in 5 days we have to install 3 automatic door operators and tie them into the interlock system, replace 4 magnetic locks that are corroded from being constantly sprayed with bleach and other horrible chemicals, replace all the hydraulic door closers (also corroded) and replace all the door position switches with new epoxy encapsulated ones. We started Wednesday and have to be ready for a pressure test of the clean core by Tuesday and a DHEC inspection by next Wednesday.

Next week will be finishing AAI Pharma, installing a sliding automatic door at a place called I Love Sugar in Myrtle Beach, and installing keyless entry locks at the machine shop (drool, talk about some cool machines.) at Boeing. Another long week, but better than being broke.

It's not a job, it's an adventure. Or at least better than driving a desk.

In the civilian world I'm an anti-hacker or an ethical hacker whatever you want to call it. Daylight is something I rarely see during the work week.

I still have no idea what I do for the Air Force on the weekends and I don't think the AF does either.

In reply to Anti-stance:

Dude, once you go herk you don't go back. Those ear plugs were just to shield your virgin ears from the badassity of the whole situation.

That said, unless I was flying it, I would sooner row a boat across the ocean than fly in the back of a C-130. I love those beasts, but only as the driver.

Couple of my buddies took a c130 from bagram to ramstein after an outbreak of disentery. They gave about 30 guys that were being flown out 2 5 gallon buckets a piece, one for each end.

I haven't had the pleasure of riding in a C-130 just being in barracks/dorms right next to one of their hangars for a few months. The C-17 isn't a bad ride though. I do envy the Coasties some times. Some great duty stations and cool toys.
