    I used to bury people. Burial vault installation and putting the casket in the vault and then putting the lid on. When things were slow I'd help load bodies into the crematory retorts. Now I'm just a stay-at-home dad to two babies.

    That's my son's job now! His motto > 'I'll be the last one to ever let you down......'

    I was a production supervisor, then production superintendent, then mechanical/electrical engineer, and finally Engineering Manager for Continental Can, bought out by Sonoco Products, bought out by Greif, Inc. Retired after 32 years. Uncle Sam trained me in nuclear power engineering and submarines and I spent many good, exciting times on a missile carrying nuke sub in the 60's.

    I specialize in high-speed aluminum tubing directional management and cleaning.

    Though, when someone asks at a bar I usually tell them either I am in Deep Sea Salvage and recovery or manage a professional wiffle ball team, geographically dependent. Though I have been so drunk I tried to pull off deep sea salvage and recover in a bar in Kansas one night....

    Hi tjnamtiw,

    I'm in the same line of work as yourself. 19 years for Impress Metal in the UK starting as a mechanical apprentice working through to Engineering Manager then 3pc Tech Manager. The family and I took a relocation package over the pond to Bloomsburg PA for the last 4 years. The company was bought out by Ardagh Group, Dublin.
    This will be the 5th buy out in the last 23 years.
    Regards, Jon
