    as windies out on the street , we often see other people at work , or going to work , in other lines of work not our own .

    are there any jobs you see that a part of you dreams/wishes that you were doing? and why ?

    the grass is always greener on the other side of course!.

    little part of me would like to be a trucker . not doing multi drops , but instead doing container work to and from the ports. i live near Felixstowe docks and have a few mates that do this job. but i can imagine it gets very boring in the end

    talking of the grass is greener, iv a brother who is long time in the aircraft industry ,earns a packet , travels the world ,china once a month but a stressy job working lates etc .
    when he was ever visiting me he used to take the mickey out of my window cleaning . but on the last visit he and his kids had a weeks hol at mine by the beach ,hes starts asking me all sorts,including--- do you always finish so early ?must be nice finishing when you do and then "what do you lot talk about? on the window cleaning forums".

    now iv never mentioned forums, which means he has looked in ,hey,,,, he secretly yearns to be one of us !!

    Done the management job, nice car etc........but they can keep their stress, 24 hr a day email, office politics etc. 18 months into this job and wishing i'd done it sooner. Love having evenings and weekends for the family, and the stress levels have plummeted!

    Back to original question though........always thought I would like Clarkson, Hammond or May's gig...!
