    Sales....

    it's not all sleazy car dealership and door to door steezie.

    I work as a sales executive and the best thing I find about sales is that your income is only limited by the amount of work you put in. The more work, the more money you earn. If I work overtime, it shows in my paycheck.

    But you have to be a social person for this kind of work. If you hate people, you're shit out of luck. Then again, if you dig manipulating folks, sales might be right for you.

    yeah I've worked in sales before Lens..I'm pretty good at it..but the thing is theres a lot of pressure involved in that line of work..if sales are going great..they love you..as soon as they fall off..no matter if its your fault or not..start looking for another job..i'm in that situation right now..thats why I'm looking for another job..

    yeah , i hear you on the whole pressure situation. My boss was on my ass last week and when i closed a hefty deal yesterday he is all smiles and "let me take you out for beers...yes?"

    The Japanese...so quirky



    Uhmmm, well, i dunno Dumy, i'm really happy where I'm at so it's kinda hard to suggest other jobs. Personally, i am shallow with regard to job satisfaction and as long as it doesn't involve homosexuality, i have no qualms about a job if it pays me big bucks

    being a tattoo apprentice is stupid
    unless you enjoy sweeping for 2 years.

    just grab your leg and go to work.
    you'll know whether you can do it or not after about 6 or 7 tatts.
