|"Lord have mercy, on the working man!"|
Labor Day is an officially recognized holiday here in the United States of America to honor those who helped build this country and its infrastructure. Ironically, a lot of us have to work tomorrow because our employer's businesses are open while they have jetted off to parts unknown to enjoy the three day weekend, but anyway...
I have had a long and varied job history.
My Dad wanted me to be an architect, but I just didn't have any foundation to justify pursuing that career.
My Mom wanted me to be a doctor, but I just didn't have the patience.
I thought about being an optometrist, but my folks and I couldn't see eye to eye on that, so my very first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned after the trial period. I just couldn't concentrate on my work. Guess I just got squeezed out.
Then I had a brief stint as a lumberjack. No, not the one from the infamous Monty Python song, but a real life tree cutter. In the end, I just couldn't hack it so my boss gave me the axe.
Afterwards I tried being a tailor, but found my talents weren't suited for the job. My meager skills were just sew-sew at best.
Then I tried being a hair stylist, but I just couldn't cut it.
I tried working for a company that made vehicle mufflers, but the work was just too exhausting.
Next I tried being a chef to attempt adding a little spice in my life, but I worked so many odd hours that I found myself without any thyme for me.
I think my best gig was as a musician, but I never worked on anything note worthy.
Next was working in the shoe factory, but I just didn't fit in.
I eventually managed to get a good job working for a pool company, and for a while things went swimmingly, but the work was just too draining in the long run.
I tried my hand at being a historian, but there really wasn't any future in it.
My last job was working at a coffee shop. But while my employer was trying to find grounds to let me go, I quit because it was just the same old grind.
So now I'm trying my hand at retirement and have discovered that I'm perfect for the job!
In any event, HAPPY LABOR DAY FOLKS, and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!--lth,jr
