Problems You Don’t Have At Your Job

– The electricity went off over the weekend, shutting down the filtration on the second grade tide pools and killing all the things in them. Therefore it smelled like a sewer in our building on Monday. On the bright side, it led to such creative student generated content such as “It smells like an ocean fart” and “It smells like Poseidon’s butthole.”

– Multitasking. Now, most jobs have this. The printer is broken, and I need to print an agenda for this meeting, and my boss wants to talk to me! Or something. (Clearly, I have never worked in an office.) What you probably don’t have- Oh no! The aquatic ecosystem organisms were delivered early. Now I have to find a place to store these snails. And I arrived late today due to a history training. And the principal is on the phone because one of my kids punched someone. It’s hard to prioritize which is more important: counseling non-violence against others, or keeping snails alive.

– Asking yourself “I wonder what it’s like to have a job where you aren’t constantly worried you’re going to pee yourself?

  1. Haha. This is so true!! The craziest part is that you can add all the office job dynamics onto the whole mixture and bring the stew to a nice boil until everything feels oh so right!
