What other jobs have you done while being a RPSGT?

Postby RPSGT1997 » Fri Jun 02, 2017 7:22 pm

Hey just curious what other techs have done to help supplement their income. I've worked prn jobs as a RPSGT but have also cleaned gorgeous beach homes and helped a beauty salon with their book-keeping. I'm always looking to flip items especially well made furniture that needs a make-over. What about you?

I've worked as a tree farmer on my own land in my off hours from scoring studies. I've done this since '75, have been an RPSGT since 2001. Its been a great counterpoint to the techie work, and keeps me lean and strong. Woods work is extremely physical, rigorous, and to me romantic and soul-restoring.



From: As You Like It

Act II, Scene I


Now, my co-mates and brothers in exile,
Hath not old custom made this life more sweet
Than that of painted pomp? Are not these woods
More free from peril than the envious court?
Here feel we but the penalty of Adam,
The seasons’ difference; as the icy fang
And churlish chiding of the winter’s wind,
Which, when it bites and blows upon my body,
Even till I shrink with cold, I smile, and say
‘This is no flattery; these are counselors
That feelingly persuade me what I am.’
Sweet are the uses of adversity;
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing:
I would not change it.

When I started out, I was a "sandwich Artist" with Subway. LOL

Also did some Copier repair, and also Marketing for the Sleep Lab.

That's great as our job can be too sedentary at times. I like how you describe it as romantic and soul-restoring as that's how I feel when I'm at the beach. I wish I could find a side job scoring studies.

Did you holler out "Welcome to Subway!" too? Hey that job would teach you good customer service not to mention patience. I love me a good Subway sandwich. A foot long is perfect to grab on my way to work. 6" now and 6" about 2 or 3 am lol.

Yes. I was trained in the old style - talking to the customer all the way from walking in to walking out. ASk about their day, their work, talking about their sandwich choice, whatever.

This was back in the 90's when we still cut the "U-shape" in the bread.

I still love eating Subway, even after working there for several years
