Import/export. Finance. Consulting. Administration. Private sector. Publishing. Government.

  Using the list above as an example, what are some vague ways a person might refer to his or her profession, career, line of work, or avocation?
  Humorous answers are also appreciated but not required.

    Import/Export - One of the most important decisions you'll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder. 

    Consulting: Your client wants to know what time it is so you grab their wrist, take a look at their watch and then tell them what time it is.

    Administration - Paid almost nothing and required to do mostly everything.

    Private Sector - Anything that the private sector can do, the government can do it worse.

    Publishers - “The profession of book-writing makes horse-racing seem like a solid, stable business.” ‒  John Steinbeck.

    Government - "Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke." - Will Rogers



    (For this question, you and me may have a different understanding of the terms within this question.)
