6 Reasons Why I Should Love My Job

Yesterday was a great day!

It took me the better part of the day to polish the synopsis of my novel so I could enter a writing competion. I did send it off and with 2 days to spare until the deadline.

The only reason I was able to do it was because I took a sick day and didn't have to go in to work. So now I see what I have to do - get sick more often. Just kidding.

On a more serious note it occurred to me that I do a lot of ranting about how much I despise my job.

So being in a good mood today I decided to come up with 10 reasons why I should love my job. Unfortunately I could only think of 6 so here they are:

1. I like to eat. It’s nice to have a roof over my head too.

2. I don’t have to worry about doing a bad job. I’ve been here so long I can do this in my sleep.

3. We have a secure gated parking lot – and it’s free.

4. It’s a construction office so I don’t have to spend a lot of money on clothes. Jeans and sneaks are the norm.

5. Many, many, many eccentric people have come through the doors to Camp Swampy and given me mucho material for a book.

6. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. NOT.
When I go home tonight I'm going to watch Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs - Mike Rowe rocks.
