dude thats a shitty way to get fired, what kind of person does it over the phone? Your boss must have been a real tool.

bright side is you get to cram in a ton of disc golf till you find a new gig.

Lots of time to read this site too :D :D :D

I'm a stay at home dad here in central ks. It's nice work if you can get it. :) I've heard good things about the emporia courses. I'll be checking them out at a tourney there next month. Centennial park in Lawrence is pretty fun and of course the k.c courses are great.

I found a job as an electrical engineer for a company that makes farm equipment for crop research. I'm in the group that's in charge of everything electrical and software related for all of the machines (mostly combines and planters).

I spend time in a cubicle, but also get to do debug and testing outside and get to spend some time out in the field either fixing, installing or presenting stuff.

I work in the asphalt shingle industry. Have to do desk work some of the time but no cubicle thank god! It gets me by without hating the thought of going to work every morning. Can't really complain I suppose. Possibly the best feature of where I work is the close proximity to an excellent course. :D

I work with a social services program About half of my time is in an office the other is out and about. One of my roles is to mentor at-risk youth. One of the things I do on a regular basis with them is play Disc Golf. I get paid to take kids to play DG, I get reimbursed milage to and from the course, and did I say I get paid to play DG :D
