Rapidly being phased out around the nation by technology.

While appreciate your "tongue in cheek" view, in reality the sectors that seem to have been spared the most from "the axe" are government employees and healthcare workers.

Weird huh? The government's going bankrupt, so they go on a hiring spree. Almost like they're planning something, only they don't do that. They're accidentally filling job boards with help wanted ads.

I should imagine you can't go wrong as a liquore merchant. People are always going to get drunk no matter what.

Convenience store operator with video poker machine.

In certain parts of the south it is the folks that run the stores with the video poker games that "pay off" in cash which is illegal in Ga. They busted up 5 stores recently outside of Savannah and found $655k in cash hidden throughout the stores. They busted 12 people and everyone of them with the exception of one had the last name of Patel. I imagine there was alot more cash stashed back in other places.

not much for political correctness are you. i am actually a little puzzled that the moderators let you get away with saying that. it degrades the respectability of this forum.
