What do you do for a living?
You know how all Leica owners are supposed to be doctors and dentists? Well I thought it might be interesting to learn what people here actually do for a living - even if you are in the medical profession
I am a 46 year old Surveyor and I work in residential development
Just a lowly Construction Hack for 46 years.
Actually a Superintendent on Projects 50 mil and up. Mostly Government.
Hello! 40 years old, and have been a dispatcher for the Maryland State Police for 18 years.

Interesting to go from this:
In just my lifetime.
I'm not a Leica owner (but lots of Zeiss and CV), and I am a stuffy academic, a musicologist -- e.g. music historian, professor, write lots about music in books and magazines.

Currently working as a Product Manager in a small Start-up.
I'll launch my own business in 2 months.

Another Leica (Leica Geosystems) I see!

Being retired with a "tiny" pension, I don't want to waste all my savings, so no M9 for me.

33 Years old - Freelance consultant, business analyst and project manager for online retailers - I added photography work about 18 months ago as I love it and it pays for my hobby!
Last I looked, you don't just roll out of school and become a Doctor. I seem to remember it involves some hard work along the way. So I don't think there is any need to apologise for reaping the benefits of the hard work.
If I didn't have two teenage daughters I would probably own a copy of every lens ever made by Leica & Zeiss!
Thanks everyone for such a great response. I think that establishes that once and for all, it goes to prove that Leica ownership is beyond the preserve of the medical profession.
You never know, even Dan Nikon could might qualify for ownership?
Recently retired graphic designer/art director in sales promotion, direct marketing and advertising.
Everyone else here seems to have a 'proper job' as my dear father would have said
