I've been pretty lucky and the majority of my jobs I have been able to choose and enjoyed. Had a couple of very cool government jobs when I was younger and a really good one for a charity. The last permanent one was an accounting position for a global copier company. Having people around me who thought photocopiers were a vital benefit to society and lived and breathed them was just too depressing so I left and went into consultancy stuff. My better half had worked for the government for a while and had gotten some good promotions, but we went mad a few years back and gave it all up to move from the UK to France to renovate her late father's house and then hopefully move on to Canada or the US. Still working on it!
