    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.

    Striped in a white collar world. Computer dude. But I also do all the networking and hardware, so anybody that has ever pushed a ceiling tile back knows....

    Not sure what striped collar means, so I clicked "white". I'm sometimes white, sometimes muddy collar.

    White collared, but in order to compensate for my career choice I have hobbies that get me dirty and calloused.

    Im blue collar, with treework on the side that's sometimes a sweaty, dirty brown collar. I guess I should be in the "bust-yer-ass-off-all-damm-day" collar category, but I didn't see that option in he poll ....;)

    run a business division, sometimes still go out and install with the guys just to let them know I can and it gains some respect if you do thier job with them. you see what I do on my time off.

    For a whole lot of years, I had no trouble whatever deciding what I was going to wear to work, and my collars always had insignias attached. So, maybe I was a Labeled Collar worker. These days (retired) I'm like H the H...you'll rarely catch me wearing anything with a collar of any color. I don't cut hair. Nor am I pregnant.
