My job is an issue in my life. There are some things that I really like about it and others that I just cannot reconcile to my values. I suppose every job has its issues. Found this bit of “inspirational” writing on another blog today.
When you have a ‘I Hate My Job day,’ try this out:
Stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson. Be very sure you get this brand.
When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed.
Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer.
Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.
Now the fun part begins.
Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully.
You will notice that in small print there is a statement:
“Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized.”
Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times, ‘I am so glad I do not work in the thermometer quality control department at Johnson & Johnson.’
Have a nice day…and remember, there is always someone else with a job that is more of a pain in the buttocks than yours!
It does add some perspective, doesn’t it?
