Which sort of occupation will be affected by Y2K most?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
How will occupations be affected by Y2K? Here is what I think: 1.pilot The planes are involved by many manchines and computers. 2.Bank(counter) If the bank can not have good prepare for the Y2K,Some data may be missing.Then at that time,many people will draw up and asking many questions.So the people who work in the bank will be so busy! 3.banker(chairman) There will be many wrong orders or many dept data will be lost. All the banker will have to worry about it. 4.computer sellsman They will be received many orders for new computer. 5.cook Many transportation of food will be late.Then the cooks may have to use canned food. 6.international restaurants or fast food shops Many transportation of food will be late. 7.people who use computers for recording They will have to recording some imformation by hand writing. 8.doctors The hospital procedure will be so busy.The timetable of the doctors will be chaos.The supply of blood and medicine will be affected. 9.Lawyers They will revceive many binsiness for the lawsuit and complaint which caused by Y2K. 10.governers The social order will be chaos.
Are they wrong? Welcome everybody suggest any answer for: How will different occupation be affected by Y2K?

RETIREMENT will be absolutely wiped out, and I am dreading it.

Dave, We are retired, and I know that if Y2K is bad, out retirement is gone. That's why we have tried to prepare for no money, and no JIT food. But we have another problem that bothers me.
We live in a combination rural/tourist area. Our home is close to a highway but not right on it. (Lots of woods, trees. a river and lake nearby) Our house is really too big for us. We own the house next door, which we are renovating. I want to sell the house we are living in now, but my husband wants to wait. There's a nice young couple, with a baby, who wants our house, but they don't have a clue about y2k. My husband doesn't want to sell until after y2k. He said if it's just a bump in the road, no problem. But if it's really bad, he doesn't want us to be stuck with someone that may not be prepared, and that we might end up being responsible for.
My take is different. I want to sell this fall, preferably to y2k aware people, so we could help each other out, if need be. I don't relish the thought of an empty house next door. We have two neighbors across the street, but one (y2k aware) may be moving in with their parents.

gilda, have you tried praying for guidance from the Lord?
-- Johny Reb (DOWNHOME@tex.as), April 07, 1999.
No. Nor have I considered consulting a crystal ball, calling a psychic, haruspices, voodoo or tea leaves. Thanks for your suggestion.
