Really? I need cheap chiropractic services. Can you hook a bruddah up? Granted, I'm in Dallas, but Ft. Worth isn't that far.

That's interesting, I was until three months ago. I'm still the compliance officer for a bank, but I had held both positions for almost 2 years.

Isn't it great having the "love" of the lending staff?

Oh, I also work as an adjunct teacher at a couple of local universities. Principles of Econ.

Currently, financial services (but not for long.....)

Also, a part-time high school teacher. Who knows how long I'll be there, come to think of it.

Keeping an eye on the prospect of going back to school, probably sooner or later.

I'm still fulltime there after 19+ years, but my job description is more like "guy over there" at the moment :)

I am the Systems Administrator for the US plant of a manufacturing company that has offices/plants in Germany (Parent Company) and China.

Most of the time that means fixing, refurbishing, or just reinstalling software on *really old* computers that they won't upgrade. :)

Me... I'm officially a "Senior Clerk" for the government.

I actually schedule hundreds of hearings per day for claimants who were rejected unemployment checks once, so they can only be rejected again at these hearings. Then they call me up to bitch about the happenings of their hearings so that I can reschedule it and then they lose again and then appeal again and this time win, but then their former employers appeal and this goes on and on and on.

Currently, I'm working on scheduling mass appeal hearings for approximately 3,000 people who were rejected benefits from a major company that layed them off. This is hell because I get about 60 calls a day for information on it.

In my spare time, I dream of winning the lottery, which I don't play. Kind of defeats the purpose... But I enjoy the perks of being a state employee and the perks is great. Free medical insurance, 401K plan, 12 vacation days, 15 sick days, and 3 administrative leave days. Ain't too bad.

I actually do both jobs as well..all of the audit/compliance stuff...I just didn't really know if that would make as much sense as "loan review."

And yeah, the lenders hate me. But hey, if they didn't make any bad loans what would I do all day :)

It looks like we have 3 bankers and all of us are in the general "compliance/LR/audit" arena. I guess that simply means that at least 3 of us really know the meaning of boring (nothing more exciting than reading banking regulations) and also know the feeling of frustration (rarely does anyone like anything that we do).

The only thing less exciting than reading banking regulations may be reading telecom requirements. And nobody likes anything that telecom engineers do either. ("Goddamn phone system never works.") I know your pain. :-)

I used to love making fun of Wiley when he used to be on the Sports Reporters years ago, overarticulating his words and doing that things with his fingers when he talked. That said, he was a very good writer. And will be missed.
