Maybe Pickin' Cotton Isn't So Bad...

First and foremost, I must say that I LOVE any job I have. If it pays my bills~~LOVE IT!! If it allows me to buy DVDs for P and treats for Crazy Dog~~LOVE IT!! I don't understand why people constantly complain about their job.

I once picked cotton with a lady (Sad Lady) that would come into my office and tell everyone how much she hated pickin' cotton everyday, and admitted that somedays SHE CRIED BECAUSE SHE HATED IT SO MUCH!! I wish I would! She would tell me that the account I handled had the workload for someone 2 pay grades higher than I (misery REALLY does love company). What did I know, I LOVED that cotton field!!

One day, while minding my own business pickin' MY cotton in MY field at MY desk, Sad Lady came in and started with her 'speech'. That day, I REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR IT!! So I told her that if she hated it so much, she should quit and find a job doing something she does like to do, because there are tons of folks out there that would love to have her position pickin' cotton for Uncle LeRoy. I'll admit that I wasn't so nice about it, but I was sick of hearing how much she hated pickin' cotton. That day she left my office in tears, and didn't come back for a few weeks. I honestly thought she took my advice and got a job cutting grass at the golf course~~hey, it pays the bills!!

I saw her about a month later, and she actually thanked me for being 'pseudo rude to her' (wtf?) She said she went on leave to the US for a couple of weeks, and while there she realized how good she had it at work.

Needless to say, I left that cotton field soon after, and found another equally gratifying with a little more promotion potential.

If you don't like your job, it COULD be worse. Popular Science magazine has come out with the list of worst jobs~


  1. ANAL WART RESEARCHER~~How and when do you show interest in this field?
  2. WORM PARASITOLOGIST
  3. LAB-ANIMAL VETERINARIAN
  4. TAMPON SQUEEZER (STD RESEARCHER)~~NOT the Safe Sex Preacher
  5. LANFILL MONITOR~~Plastic on the right. Paper on the left. Old food around back.
  6. K-25 (OAK RIDGE LAB) DEMOLITION~~In Tennessee
  7. ST. JOHN'S HARBOR (SEWAGE) ECOLOGIST
  8. IRAQI ARCHAELOGIST
  9. TICK DRAGGER~~Tick hunter
  10. NURSE~~HEY!! My sister (Time 'Tard) is a nurse! I think it's MORE dangerous to be one of her patients.lol!!
  11. COMPUTER HELP-DESK TECH~~Ya don't say!!
  12. CONGRESSIONAL SCIENCE FELLOW~~Is this Uncle LeRoy's way of saying INTERN??
  13. PUBLIC SCHOOL SCIENCE TEACHER
  14. NOSOLOGIST (DISEASE STATISTICIAN)
  15. ROOT SORTER
  16. CRANK (MAVERICK THEORIST)~~No, this is NOT my Ex-Step Monster!!
  17. TV METEOROLOGIST~~MUST take the blame for all the bad weather.

Now let's say it together...I LOVE MY JOB! I LOVE MY JOB! I LOVE MY JOB!
