work sucks.

I recently promised myself that if there is one goal I will stick to in this life, it will be this: I wish to persuade my daughter into a livelihood that will never ever ever entail spending a single day in a cubicle. The rest of us should be so lucky.


That is an excellent goal and we should all be so lucky. My youngest daughter wants to be a lawyer, so she's already sealed her fate. My oldest daughter wants to teach - trading cube for a straight jacket, I say. And my son, baby in the bunch, just wants to be Rank 14. :-)


Believe me, being a cubicle slave is so much better then manual labor. I've done physical labor for 8 hours a day and when you get home you just want to rest and do nothing let alone play games.


He could always come work the oil fields in Wyoming. 60-80 hours a week, but at around $20 an hour. Good money if you don't want to have a life outside of work... Or you could drive truck at a Strip Mine and work 12 hour shifts for ~$30 an hour.

Personally, I like my desk job.


Wyoming. Remind me again why people live there? *Smile* I hope whatever they do makes them happy. That's really all that counts. You spend so many hours at work or thinking about work for your financial survival, it's best to at least like it. I'm a little bummed that none of them want into technology. They're good with computers and I could help them out, but oh well.
