Who are you?

What do you do?
What do you mean?
What do you do for a living?
I have a job.
That’s what I mean. What’s your job?
Oh, it’s just a job.
Where do you work?
Company X.
What do you do there?
Mostly I work … I also goof off a bit when things are slow.
*sigh* What kind of work do you do?
Its just work. Why do you ask?
I’m trying to get to know you.
Oh … … What have you learned so far?
Nothing.
Maybe it's the questions.

No kidding. I wonder how many of us are doing work we don't care about or actively dislike, just to pay the bills? And I'd like to meet the guy who said "Do what you love. The money will follow."

I am not necessarily more than my job, but I am completely different than my job.

The key to work:
Do what you like;
like what you do.

Unfortunatly, most men
live lives of quiet desperation.

Reminds me of that quote.. I'm a human being, not a human doing (not sure who said it).

When people ask me what I do, I always ask back, "what, for money or what else I do?" And life's too short to not be doing what you love (and yes, Larry, the money does follow : ) and on your own terms. Provocative as always, Hottie.

How we earn a living does not define us. (Unless, of course, you are one of the lucky who is actually doing what you are born to do - like an artist or writer, etc.)

Larry - You and I ... our jobs get in the way of our LIFE.

Datingmaster - It's always tempting to fall back on "What do you do?" during small talk, but I try to avoid it.

Al - I love your smart-assiness!

Dick - I've been in a bit of a funk. Thanks for missing me.

Stephen - Great interview, Babe!

Ron - Ron = Blog. Good slogan for a t-shirt.

Polyman - I like goofing off. Any openings?

Shephard - I've never heard that ... but I like it.

Jayne - The least interesting thing I do happens between 9-5. You are such a complex and interesting Hot Chik. I can't imagine you getting stuck in a job-related definition.

Laurie - I have no idea what I was born to do ... except perhaps what I've already done. I like the idea of being creative ... oh, and goofing off.

I agree...what we do for a living does not define us...when I meet someone new...I try not to make this the first question I ask...because we all have preconceived ideas about most professions.

I, on the other hand, love my job & am so lucky to do something I love...so most times I tell.

My job does define me, I guess that comes from doing what I have always dreamed of doing.

My job is very rewarding;
I paint the dots on dominoes-
could use some help...
