Beginning with peeling bark and picking berries as a kid, to today as a private personal assistant/nurse assistant, a quick accounting tells me I've had at least fifteen very different types of employment in my life. Some I liked better than others.
I'm reminded by this card in women's Retail Upscale Clothing I made it a whole three days and never went back. I couldn't bear to see the way people of wealth treated those lovely clothes; looking back, caregiving in one form or another seems to have always been a thread through my life. All in all my only regret has ever been and ever will be, that I was unable to go to college and really have a career. Ah well, maybe next time.
"Saw a sign at a gas station. It said 'help wanted'. There was another sign below it that said 'self service'. So I hired myself. Then I made myself the boss. I gave myself a raise. I paid myself. Then I quit." ~ Steven Wright 1956-
