    Good day,

    Prior to becoming disabled due to a work related accident/injury, I was a CATV Technician. I worked in industrial plant fabrication (Hooking up a whole apartment block, townhouse complex, or a city block with Cable/Digital T.V.)
    Putting together Cable access T.V. systems on a large scale. Also worked in the commercial and residential installations. Installing Digital T.V. and broadband Internet.
    Video security systems-predominantly video surveillance in cassino's, county/regional jails, and CCTV in oil refineries.

    State of the art security systems,Nanny cams and home office spy cameras. ie. camera's in a smoke detector's, clocks, text books. You name it!

    Occasionally I claim to be a college student and I have an entry level office position. Not sure what I wanna be when I grow up (or if I wanna grow up). :D

    The best it when somebody wants a cable outlet installed right behind a 900lbs wall unit. I then I get to tell them that "They" will have to move it out of the way so that I can work back there.
    The come is always: Well, thats what you're here for!
    Then Ryan's favorite reply:(First point at company logo on shirt/jacket) See "Shaw cable company. Nowhere does it say Shaw furniture moving. So
    NO, I install cable,not move furniture, YOU do that.

    What really pisses the customer off most is when you tell them that they cannot have an outlet in that spot (behind said 900lbs wall unit) for what ever reason! :D

    I loved my union job.

    I love coming up with the details and then drawing them up, but I do have to do a lot of the 'connect the dots' part too when doing the surveys (blarg) I rather do design work any day!
