"what do you do?"


  

          

question I got from my eldest grandson, yesterday
I forget the riding in the car discussion we were having
but his question stood out...

because I don’t speak well off the cuff, I told him I’ll get back to him. I’m about to get back.

through text, per his request
new age grandma lol

/
a homie came through last night.
good food, good wine and bomb conversation
hygge
she went home to freshen up and we’re doing it again tonight

tell y’all what I learned come Monday...

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

it’s not a profession such as “nurse” or something a child would easily understand. I realized I had to break it down further to him. He didn’t understand it.

I did tell him what I do...he didn’t understand it. so I needed time to think about how to break it down to a kid. I was driving and we reached our destination...

hence, I’ll get back to you...

I don’t really speak on it unless I’m asked or there is a networking opportunity.

Some folks like to brag tho so many e they think you are secretive because you don’t lead with it in random conversations.

I hate how people value what they do instead of who they are when meeting people.

shut up already, damn

12. "nah not really"
In response to Reply # 9


  

          

i only talk about my job with people that ive worked with before or when asked about it. sometimes the convo leads to it so i will volunteer some info.

but yeah sometimes family will ask me how work is which will lead to more questions and i try to answer the best i can. not try to be vague. ill explain where the building is in location to near by streets and landmarks.

i mean i have a stupid title so if i tell people my title they will have a blank stare so sometimes ill just say its in graphic design. if they ask for more info i try to explain what exactly i do and what kind of products you will see stuff i work on. sometimes even point out something, like hey we make those at work. lol

11. "my fam knows I work for a big phone company."
In response to Reply # 7


          

but that's it. it wouldn't do any good to explain it to them.

once I told them 'big phone company', the next question is can you get me a discount on a phone. followed by complaints about the company.

even my momma.........no, I don't work in that dept!

you probably think you're cooler than me

like can you print me 15 stickers???? there was a bit of time i could especially since we were getting familiar with new equipment. the company wouldnt really do runs that were less than 500 linear feet though so not really convenient.


i dont really know what one of my brothers does. i know he works at some sort of copper cable company, thats about it. dont even know the company name.
