Freaky Friday

I was going to post about 15 year old girls and their irratic behavior, but I’m sure there are books and books and books to cover that. I was going to discuss the highs and lows of being a 12 year old boy, but I’m pretty sure that there are after school specials that cover that one more clearly than I could ever hope to. I thought about spewing about the suckiness of stress and life-altering decisions, but this isn’t that kind of blog and I’m not the kind of girl that airs her dirty laundry. My political opinions at the moment aren’t much beyond, “shut up, already!” and that’s not conducive to discussion. So you’re left with a Coffee Talk to wrap out the week.  With any luck, the weekend of late night Magic games with my brothers and early morning coffee talk with my parents will birth some great tale for next week. Until then I give you…

You’ve no doubt heard the expression, “They couldn’t pay me enough to do that job.” What job would that be for you?

Hmmm… I need more coffee to choose which of the four popped into my mind before I finished asking the question. I’ll be back in a bit to answer, meanwhile, what’s your anti-job?

  • There are a lot of jobs they couldn’t pay me to do, but right off hand, the one I’ve said many times in the past fit this criteria…

    President of the US

  • The mom says:

    I’m with you David, -who would want to BE President, or the guy who stands out in front of these candidates and lies for them. But no, my “couldn’t pay me” jobs are 1) doing the outside windows on any skyscraper, 2) I love the Packers, but would really hate working in a slaughter house-pigs, chickens, cattle-it wouldn’t matter. or 3)doing any job in the Rap music business.

  • Bob Ford says:

    A Proctologist. Oh wait… I already work in Advertising.

    Anything at all to do with chickens.

    The guy whose job it is to wash down the aftermath of traffic accidents.

    Picking up roadkill.

    A daycare staff person.

  • The mom says:

    The daycare staff person very funny but I see your point

  • Slaughterhouse/Meat Processing. No thank you.

  • seth says:

    i would have to say waste water treatment plant janitor, thats the crappiest job. always have to deal with everyone’s crap.

    Ooooh good responses! I’ve thought about it, and while the easy answer is “anything they’ve ever done on Dirty Jobs” there are a few things that really top the cake:

    3. Chickens. Dude, I’m so with you there. I killed chickens once–cut off their heads, plucked feathers, removed the nasty ass-gland, the whole nine yards. I’m never going back there again… EVER!

    2. School nurse. Think about that. Because having children in the school system brings home enough germs, imagine what that poor girl gets… not to mention the lovely and oh so appealing head-lice check that she must do over and over and over again in her career. Ewww

    But the real kicker? #1. Suicide hotline.
    Life is just never THAT bad, and for all my open-mindedness and lack of prejudices, I cannot stomach victims. Whiny, pathetic victims would make me snarky and that wouldn’t help anyone [I’m the one on the ground when there’s a jumper yelling, “Do it! Come on ya big chicken, just do it! It’s ok *wink wink* I’ll catch you!”]. 1 week of that and I’d be calling co-workers and threatening my own wrists with a rusty razor blade!

    See? I told you I’d come back and answer, I just didn’t get a lunch hour today to do that [instead I got done with work early… woo hoo!]

  • Joseph Mulak says:

    You couldn’t pay me enough to work as the guy who has to test those suits that protect you from bears.

  • seth says:

    i could also say probably horse masturbater for stud farms. lots of ups and downs in that job. ha ha.

Thoughts? Tell me what you think...
