Chances are at some point during a party, get-together, or family function someone you were talking to asked you what you do for a living.

Most of us will be very basic and brief with the description but where is the fun in that? For example, when people ask me what I do for a living instead of saying radio DJ or I'm on the radio, I usually tell people that "I talk and push buttons". Which I do, but there is more to it.

So I thought it would be fun for people here in Western New York to describe their jobs as poorly as possible. Tons of people chimed in on social media and sent me messages using our App.

A lot of them made me crack up including the one from Nancy who wrote on Twitter that she "repeats herself over and over and over saying do not pick up anything on our walk!"

I assume that Nancy is a dog walker or maybe works with little children. Either way, it is pretty funny.

Another fun one was from Allison who sent me a DM on the APP saying "I cut open people and help put them back together." At first, I thought she was a member of the king's men working on Humpty Dumpty but it turns out she is a surgical assistant at a local doctor's office.

That was only the tip of the iceberg. From "I scrape Teeth" to "I am an overpaid babysitter who gets summers off" the way people here in Western New York describe their jobs will make you chuckle.
