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.

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.)

I get to spend 40 hours a week being berated, screamed at and sometimes cursed at while apologizing constantly. 

I am a CS rep in a large call center.

I do things with hens, eggs, and goats-- occasionally, I sell some of these things. I also take material and turn it into other things. Sometimes, I also help a pharmacist turn one thing into another.

I kick out small humans each weekday morning and wait in dread for them to return so I have to produce food and interact with them in regards to the duties their carers force upon them.I also participate in the punishment doled out while they are not in my care.

I clean house, shop, and do laundry for a (fortunately) very appreciative client.

I'm a homemaker.  I'm the one who does all this because I'm retired. 

For the job I had before I retired:  I listened to nattering, made sense of it, and typed it into a computer.  I was a medical transcriptionist for 25 years.
