The Many Works of Pat Hatt
So you want to know the best job I’ve ever had. Does being a rhyming cat count? That is a job, one that doesn’t pay anything though. So it may not qualify.
Most hated is easy, stupid, stupid sawmill. Piling wood all day is not my idea of fun. Hate that with a passion. Never again.
The rest have had their perks and were enjoyable enough. You see a lot of types working at a convenience store. Some of them are very, very scary though. Like dirty, drunk old men.
Then the rest of the time I’ve basically worked in an office. All types run through there as well. Paying other people’s bills and playing with their money is a bit repetitive, but hey, you get to see what you could do if you had money. That is a perk, right? Or maybe it could be depressing. All how you look at things I suppose.
But the best is the obvious answer, what I’m doing right now, writing. So much better to make your own hours and just write away. Plus sitting home, not having to go through traffic, get dressed, etc. is a nice perk as well. It’s too bad that it is mainly a hobby though, as no way can one live off of being a writer alone. Unless you somehow hit it big, which, with all the millions of books out there, probably has the same odds as you winning the lottery.
Doing social media for a few others here and there has been fun too. But with that you have to remain PC as to not make waves. The cat and I both don’t like the whole PC crap. But we can bite our tongue when need be. We can be bought, we’re not cheap, but we can be bought.
Do you have a favorite job? Have you had many jobs? I’ve done a lot of different things but been mostly at just a few jobs.
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
