My father used to badly describe his job as "cutting up dead people for food."

My dad used to describe his job as "Working nights as a hooker at the biggest cat house west of the Mississippi."

He was working graveyard shift as a crane operator at the Caterpillar warehouse in Denver at that time.   ;D

I love it!

I chase a squirrel and read minds.

I tell people what to say and then tell them what they said.
It tell them where to go and what to do when they get there.

(I am an Executive Assistant to a boss who is highly distractible and known for speaking in half sentences. 😀
I write letters and take meeting notes, book travel and publish itineraries.)

I've been told I'm lucky to be paid because I lie like a sheet.

I'm a meteorologist.
The days are long but the years are short.

I walk into people's workplaces, unplug their stuff, fiddle with it a bit, then plug it back in.

(I do in-situ electrical safety testing on portable appliances.)
