Don't get your hopes up :)



Talked to the editors later that day and I still need to prove something to them before I can get a project. Good thing is, I now have actual editors who will be waiting for new pages from me :)

It is now truly up to me, really.

PARENT - Job Description

PARENT - Job Description

This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way,

I don't believe any of us would have done it!!!!


POSITION :

Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma

Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop


JOB DESCRIPTION:


Long term, team players needed, for challenging

permanent work in an

often chaotic environment.

Candidates must possess excellent communication

and organizational skills and be willing to work

variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends

and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.

Some overnight travel required, including trips to

primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities!

Travel expenses not reimbursed.

Extensive courier duties also required.


RESPONSIBILITIES:


The rest of your life

Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily,

until someone needs $5.

Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.

Also, must possess the physical stamina of a

pack mule

and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat

in case, this time, the screams from

the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.

Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges,

such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets

and stuck zippers.

Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and

coordinate production of multiple homework projects.

Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings

for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.

Must be willing to be indispensable one minute,

an embarrassment the next.

Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a

half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.

Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

Must assume final, complete accountability for

the quality of the end product.

Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and

janitorial work throughout the facility.


POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT &PROMOTION :


None.

Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills,

so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you


PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE:


None required unfortunately.

On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.


WAGES AND COMPENSATION:


Get this! You pay them!

Offering frequent raises and bonuses.

A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because

of the assumption that college will help them

become financially independent.

When you die, you give them whatever is left.

The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that

you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.


BENEFITS:


While no health or dental insurance, no pension,

no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and

no stock options are offered;

this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth, unconditional love,

and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.


Forward this on to all the PARENTS you know, in appreciation for everything they do on a daily basis,

letting them know they are appreciated

for the fabulous job they do...

or forward with love

to anyone thinking of applying for the job.

** AND A FOOTNOTE ?

THERE IS NO RETIREMENT -- EVER!!! **

If you are fortunate enough you will become grandparents!


Keep Laughing,


Best medicine for the heart and mind.
