    [QUOTE=kingarthur;91357]It's 31 years in one months time, love every minute of it. What other jobs do you get to see different people everyday, who supply you with coffee & biscuits. 90% of my customers i know personally, they're friends or neighbours, they very rarely kick off as they know I will do everything I can to help them. Most of my jobs I attend to within 1 hour as they are all within a 20 min walk from my workshop. Because they are all so close I don't need to worry about parking, if I need a part I walk back & get it, while my coffee is cooling down. Whenever I go out at night I normally bump into a customer who is quite happy to buy me a drink!! My wife is no longer jealous when I get beautiful women smiling at me or giving a little wave.

    I think I have the perfect job !!!![/QUOTE
    After reading this I really want to move to Jersey. AndyRSV

    You got me beat, I started Feb. 1966. Some days I would really like to retire, but with trying to keep up with the technology changes, I think I could go on forever.

    31 years and still enjoy it. Started on typewriters in 1978. Tried to turn away but can't stop the urge to fix something broken.

    How long? I have been in this industry for over 40 years, and then to find that my employer went into receivership. Thankfully, I have now an opportunity to continue my ' last ' years with another employer, with better conditions, and opportunities, even if it means having to learn what an iR---- model is. As someone has said they only have to put toner onto paper. Still enjoying the work.

    Just read the above quote, and feel somewhat honoured to be included, as I started my apprenticeship in January 1965. Trying to keep up with the changes, and being successful 'most' of the times. Only takes one friendly customer to wipe out the other 'bad' ones in a day.

    I've worked on Ricoh products for 22 years now and for the last 2 years on Kyocera as well. What a joy.
