I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair
electrical appliances free of charge.

I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep,
I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.
I use to really enjoy LSD too.

Just this morning I went to a final (3rd) interview for the northeast Business Development Manager position for a flagship company in the electronics industry. I'll know if I won the gig next week. This is my career.

I also DJ every Saturday night at an all-nude gentlemen's club right near MetLife Stadium (where the Jets & Giants play). This gets me out of the house and provides extra cash to go on trips and buy toys.

About 9 years ago I had a super-jealous girlfriend accuse me of going to a strip club while out of town on a business trip. She claimed that someone she knew recognized me, took a picture and text it to her. I called out her bs with one question... Who the hell is taking pictures in a strip club? :

My belief is purchasing is more difficult than people think it is... At least in my industry (electronics). The purchasing guys do seem to get all the perks from manufacturers though.

Everyone loves to hate on the Buyer because we get paid to develop relationships and have extremely flexible hours / work schedules.

I understand that.

Yes, there are many perks and some days feel like you didnt work at all.

Performance is tracked very closely through... can definitely be very stressful at times as well. Our job at the end of the day is to protect the company from blood thirsty suppliers/vendors and drive down costs. Also manage inventories and relay market information. Without the Buyer, companies cannot function.

As an outside sales professional I can relate. I was thinking of the physical perks. The Purchasing team seem to be the ones getting tickets behind home plate at the Yankees games.

Yep. Sporting events, fancy dinners, small(ish) gifts, etc are all part of the corporate shmooze. We never let those sway our decisions though

Having been on both sides of the coin, supplier management at a major OEM and an account manager at a tier 1 supplier, I can tell you that 90% of purchasing people are morons. Very few of them have even a basic understanding of what they're buying, let alone any idea of what it takes to actually make it.

Two weeks ago, I had a customer tell me we should buy a $2,000,000 CNC mill so we can provide them with $5 widgets faster. He even offered to give me a guaranteed PO for 10,000 pieces over the next two years.

Vetting/developing new suppliers requires some talent to do it effectively, but the people slinging POs and purchase reqs all day are monkeys at best.
