Yo! This is a bit of an addendum to the mega thread: "Who are you, where are you from..and what do you do?" For those that don't know, blue collar - you work primarily with your hands (mechanic, laborer, etc), white collar - you work mainly in an office, striped is a little of both, like a field technician, company owner that works in the plant as much as the office. retired is self explanatory and other could be between careers, recuperating or pregnant. I'm a self employed contractor, so I'm in the striped category.
