No disrespect intended to my company or the position I hold, but most 5 year olds are not that interested in the day-to-day activities of a call center manager. Sometimes even 43 year olds are not that interested. But when your kids start to nag you about your job, you know things have gone too far.
Saturday - driving to the library, we got to talking about school days and work days, vs. “stay home days” i.e. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Out of the blue the Dude asks, “When are you going to quit that boring old job and get a real job building something?” Sort a little capitalist isn't he - the old jobs of value are those building something (creating wealth).
Never had that problem with my Dad. While he didn't actually build things he worked at the Post Office. A five year old understands what the Post Office does. My Dad “made the mail go through” - something anyone could understand. Call center manager doesn’t cut the mustard.
