The Killer fixed a sandwich and dropped some bread on the floor and stepped on one of the slices leaving a perfect toe print. He took his shoes off when he broke into the victim's house and covered his hands with his socks so he wouldn't leave fingerprints. I guess he thought he would never leave a toe print. Lol!

I work as an IT Support Specialist for a north Dallas Police Department.  I work closely with Police Officers/911, and even though we are IT, they embrace us into their "family".  It's a great place to be! :)

At my dept., all non sworn personnel from the dispatchers down to the maintenance crew is family to me and my fellow officers.

@Chefman77  My husband is also a disabled vet - 20%.  How difficult was it to get the VA to pay for your surgery?

Fascinating field! I have told my youngest son that he would make an excellent trial Lawyer as he has a rebuttal for everything. He loves to debate.

As with anything dealing with the VA it was quite the process...I had to be recommended for it by my doctor. I had to join the MOVE program and start seeing their nutritionist. I had 24, 1-hour telephone conference calls over a 6 month period. Then I had all the pre-surgery tests and mental health evaluation. The process should have taken about 8 months, but it took almost 18 months from start to surgery due to various degrees of incompetence along the way. I truly am blessed to have had the opportunity though so I don't complain.

USPS delivers more packages than anyone according to recent info, I love all my delivery drivers from all carriers and I let them know. It always comes back to me in a very positive way, and the local PO and UPS stores are no different, we all know each other by name. Amazon drivers also get thanked every single time. You reap what you sow, not to get biblical here.  ;-)

I'm a teleworker for a non-profit health insurance plan serving the Medicaid population... I work in the Quality area, so I help educate members about their benefits and how to get the preventive care and health care tests/screenings they need every year.  Most of what I do is writing, creating pilot studies, and reporting out to the state. Plus, I do a lot of writing about diabetes, asthma, and cancer.

On the side, to help pay off my endless student loans, I write short romance fiction and sell it on amazon.

IT guy for a great company! 17 years now. I am the IT-everything for about 60 people, and the company is extremely diverse. We are heavily involved in aviation- one division is a 5-star FBO/private terminal, another handles most of the fueling on our airport for the major airlines. We are logistics experts for anything having to do with the deep cold, and we have dedicated facilities that get used every year, by every major name in the aviation and automobile industries, for cold-weather testing. Companies bring their planes, cars, prototype planes and cars, tires, brake fluid, engines, on and on, to test them in the cold temps of our region. We routinely get to -40F or colder every Jan and Feb. 

I provide expert-level IT support to our users, manage a small server building, and take care of the various warm- and cold-weather projects that come and go. I truly am blessed with a job that I love going to every day.

Um.. well I work for a manufacturing company that has several factories, which pays all my bills and keeps me in home, food and clothing.

Besides that I write short fiction & comics, have a small indie publishing thing going with some friends - this is where a lot of my earnings from the other job that aren't essential expenses or earmarked for savings for rainy days. It's not profitable as such but it keeps me happy.
