    Is your job one you are happy with??
    Do you think you will stay at that particular job for the rest of your life, or for as long as they'll keep you??
    Or maybe you will consider something better down the road??

    Me, I'm pleased working in the school system. I really have great hours and it's not too demanding. I know I will never get to be what I really would like to be, and that's working in forensics, such as a medical examiner or even a funeral director. I wish I had studied for something in those fields long ago.

    I have a well paying job. However it comes with a demand for a lot of commitment and stress; particularly in today's economic pressures.
    The money means I never have to think about bills or prioritize one thing over another, I make enough for everything we need and then some.

    Buuut...I can't say I am not ready for a change. Once the kids are out of college - a simpler life I will undoubtedly want.

    Funeral director? You want to put clothes on dead people?

    That is either eccentric, or really fricken weird.

    Wait, which school system are we talking about?

    Percy! Yes, I would like to have a job as a funeral director, or one who performs the autopsies.
    Someone has to dress those that have passed away, might as well be someone who would want the job and treat them with respect.....believe it or not, when my Mother passed away, and also my Aunt, I personally painted their fingernails myself!
    I wanted to help in the 'preparation' of their bodies, and so I did, the funeral homes were Ok with it.
    I will say tho, trying to apply fingernail polish to very cold nails, is a bit difficult!
    And I work in a middle school, 6th, 7th and 8th graders :)

    Do you have netflix, Dabs? Look for the movie DEPARTURES in instant play. It's foreign, but has subtitles. It's a lovely film about a man who prepares bodies for burial, with respect. He gets flack, is seen as ghoulish. But the message it sends is eye opening.

    Right now I am picturing Dr. Laurel Weaver, that hot medical examiner in 'Men in Black'.

    Yes i have a good job...maybe not the best pay but we get by. In fact my husband and i work at the same place. He works in the factory (for 15 yrs) and i work in the office (for 18 yrs). Gets kinda interesting sometimes since he's in the union and I'm not! lol! I'm a quality technichian, get ok pay, know everything a quality engineer knows, went to school for alot of it but still only a technician. Our company isn't the best at promoting women :) But, i work about a mile from my house which is great with the gas prices what they are! And it's the best place to work in our area...so i'm ok!
