So, what so you do?

Always a question on the overnight while sitting at the bar. Since I am tired of the remarks when explaining that I'm a pilot, I've come up with two fake jobs to use as an excuse. They are: aluminum tubing distribution and I sell rubber O rings wholesale.

So, in the spirit of the thread......what do you do?

I generally dont mind answering the questions thet go along with explaining that im a pilot but I googled some a while ago to entertain myself and rotate through them now and then. It's even better when you're commuting in uniform and use them to answer the inevitable "so, are you a pilot?" question.

Try being a cop. It's even worse. Since I fly part time, I usually end up telling people I'm a pilot just to avoid the "can I ask you a question about a ticket I got?". When on duty, you can not even get into the store to get a cup of coffee without getting barraged by questions.

"Can I hold it?" must get old.

That's just, like, your opinion, man
I actually just say that I'm a charter pilot. Most people don't really know what that is, anyway. Interest usually wanes when they figure out that I don't work for a company they recognize. :)

Dolphin trainer all the way.
Heinz Getwellvet. I am trainer of dolphins. You want to talk to de dolphin, you talk to me!

I've used so many different covers... I'd have to say my favorite is health inspector. It's a great way to get a girl to leave the bar/restaurant with you.
