    I'll start the ball rolling.

    I work as a Mobiles Site Designer for a major Telco.

    Basically I get told build a tower/pole/etc here and put whatever they want inside the hut or room to make it all work. I then spend lots of their money to make it happen and somehow usually on time or early :shock:

    Sometimes I even manage to have some money left over for them but I never get to see any of it :cry:
