    I was previously an industrial machine mechanic, repairing lathes, milling machines and other shop equipment for the goverment before being promoted to an office type enviroment as an equipment specialist 2.5 years ago. I miss being able to move around and working on the equipment and I'm thinking of returning to my old job, will be 40 in a couple of months and am just wondering if I may regret doing this later on in life as I get older. Anyone here ever go through the same thing and regret doing it later?

    In my opinion, you can't put a price on happiness. Do what you really enjoy doing -- you'll live a longer, happier, and more stress free life which isn't all bad! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Life's to short to have a job you are not happy doing,Iwalked away from a good paying "office enviroment type" job 12 year's ago and have'nt looked back since. now I get to drive around a beautiful college campus and meet college hottie's all day /forums/images/icons/cool.gif I could never see myself going back to being stuck inside an office again and I love my job! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif make's a big difference when you're doing somthing you like.

    I'm a cash whore. Don't care for my job all that much, but it pays good...guess I have to suck it up at work to enjoy everything else.
