Weeeeeelll .... actually Madhu ....

... but we won't talk about that!

(Not too many jobs. But I spent a long time as an "internal
consultant" at the phone company ... so I had opportunities
to do a bunch of different things. Stopwatch time and motion
studies, building stock valuation models, all kinds of odd
jobs really.)


+ side of being a telco operator: Early on a Saturday morning
an "overenthusiast" couple managed to knock the phone off the
bedside table.  The receiver fell off, the phone landed upside
down ... and apparently dialed "0".  Interesting call!

- side of being a telco operator: Answering several calls from
elderly individuals that usually run along the lines of "Please
help... I haven't eaten in several days."  VERY Stressful!

How many different jobs have you done, Ron? :))

It seems like you've been in almost every profession that's ever been
mentioned on thechat. (Except perhaps a gigolo.)
