Work sucks, but its one saving grace is that everyone else has to do it, just like you (unless you’re one of those trash bags who finds their work rewarding, in which case hit the road). You might still be like “Yeah, but some people have really good jobs!” Don’t worry, my friend; every job is worse than you think. That said, your bad job might have some perks you weren’t even aware of. Come, take my hand…
The older I get, the more I have come to love cleaning. Yes, the repetitiveness of it appeals to my OCD, but it’s also the immediately visible result of your work that’s so satisfying. As a janitor, you mop, and the floor is immediately cleaner. Sure, the job can be gross as hell, but it reminds you that you’re a real human being that affects the world around you.
To be clear, I’m referring to the kind of menial labor where you like, build rich people’s houses, or wash their cars, or something. You’re maybe reading that and thinking it sounds awful. Well, good guess, you guessing pro. Here’s the thing, though — your horrible employers have been refusing to do their own basic tasks for so long that they are now essentially useless babies. With any luck, civilization as we know it will crumble in their lifetime, and you’ll get to watch them die pretty much immediately.
Wow wow wow can plumbers ever make a good living, and it’s the kind of trade that a lot of people think is bad, so they always have a lot of work available to the them. *accepts a huge bag of cash in secret from the Plumbing Industry*
As a personal assistant, you’ll almost assuredly end up knowing enough about your boss to be able to ruin their life if you put your mind to it. If you’re REALLY lucky, it won’t just be them, either — your terrible, despotic boss will probably be so oblivious as to your secret wish to destroy them that they’ll tell you other people’s secrets as well. Then you can bring down their entire social circle.
This job actually seems really bad and boring, BUT… uh.. hold on, I’m sure there’s something I’m missing…
Do you have an awful, no good job? Why don’t you tell us about its perks on Twitter @Smosh, and maybe it’ll also be a helpful reminder to yourself.
