I just put up a silly post to get me started with my violin. I posted it in the breakroom because the description said anything could be posted.
After that I noticed a section below it called “Off Music Topics” Should I have posted my silly post in the Off Music Topics section? Are they the same? I know how confusing it can get in forums if people post willy nilly (also confuses poor willy).
Thanks for clearing this up. Hope I didn’t post in the wrong place earlier. Time to have violin fun.

That is hilarious cid.
Where do you work?
I am retired. I had some great jobs, though. Not grand like high paying career type jobs. Just jobs I really liked. I was really lucky in that aspect.
First job out of high school was a job I hated. It was a bank secretary job. Know the Dabney Coleman character in Nine to Five? He was modeled after my very first boss! This was before that movie. He literally pushed pencils off the front of his desk! Well, I was having none of that. Next time I came in with extra pencils. When he rolled one off, I left it there. I just gave hime one of my nicely sharpened pencils. LOL When I left, that pencil was still on the floor. He ran his finger up my back when he arrived every morning. That was it, I quit. Back then there was really no recourse.
Second job was a factory job. I know that is a lot of work and most do not like it, so I am not making light of it, but I absolutely loved it. I was young and had no responsibilities. They put me running the capper and filler after a couple months. A week before my birthday, in October, I was taken off and put back on the line. Why? They found out the birthday was my 18th. Meaning, I was only 17 and legally could not operate factory machines. Line supervisor asked why I did not mention it. I had no idea. I just did what I was told. Unfortunately for Jer, my husband, he has not seen that side of me. It was in my vows that I was not going to “obey”. I preferred the line over operating the filler and capper. But they put me back on them after my birthday.
In April of the next year, after I was 18, I was able to work at the largest employer of our area and worked in the personnel office. You had to be 18 to work there. I loved that job, too. Married Jer and decided to start a family right away. Quit that job to be a full-time mother.
Being a mother is a lot of work, but I do not consider that as one of my jobs, that was, and is, my life.
When kids were in school I ran a wordprocessing business from home, also taught Multimate and Word. I did the pricebook for parts for the company I worked the personnel office for, and went in and taught Multimate and Word. Made my own lessons. It was at least 60 hours a week. Too much, but I never missed a deadline or had to redo anything. 3 years later they were switching systems. Seemed to be a good time to get out of that business, so I stopped then. It was fun, and my own, though.
Had a couple other jobs that I liked that were office jobs too, but only did them for the amount of timeI signed on for. Two wanted me to stay. Nah, I needed to be able to take time off whenever my kids needed me, and that would not have happened.
Now, my husband and I are retired.
