Default What do the Wives of THT do...

Everyone always wants to know what we do for a living but no one ever asks about the wife. I am sure there are many here that have professional careers...so lets here it

I'll start.

My wife Insures Power Generation Facilities. She has been in the commercial large property insurance industry since the day she graduated from college. She can go from a fancy dinner or lunch out with the Risk Manager of a huge company to putting on a hard hat and steel toes and touring a facility with her engineers. She's the big kahuna in the family...I'm the crumb kicker.

Mine just quit her freaking job

Wife was a stay at home and then she found seasonal work that gives her summer off. She's going for an interview on Monday for a new job that is strictly a work from home position.

My wife is Big Al's accountant. Needless to say, we live pretty well with the money she skims from his hooker and blow business.

We were lucky and could afford for my wife to stay at home with our now 6 yr old daughter. When she is not helping at the school or doing things with our daughter she works here at our insurance agency.

My wife is the only employed family member....my reels are my hobby..

She's a city bus driver...

At 4'10" she looks lost up there....but has had 6 yrs of experience and never a ticket or accident that was her fault. She wields those 40' buses a hell of a lot better than I could imagine me doing it..

She loves it!

First wife is the moneymaker, Nurse Practitioner for a local Dr...

She did all that after the divorce...

An account coordinator for a large Ins company. She makes about a third less than me but it makes a difference. She's been eligable for retirement for three yrs now, since 50, but I hope she hangs in there till 58 or so.

Mine has every mans dream job. She's a Mammogram Tech, she also does regular X-Ray and is certified in Cat Scan and MRI. She pulls in about 65 a year so we make about even. She's talking about moving into the private sector to work in the Liftboat Buisness with her sister who does super well for not having a degree.

My ex was a Physical Therapist specializing in wound care. Between that and her screwing around on me, she stayed quite busy.
