A few days back, Daemon told something about bad jobs. That inspired me to think about the best jobs in the world. I found job of a Yoga instructor is the best. Your views?

He's not a yoga instructor, he's the janitor.

I always figured the best job would be meteorologist. Where else can you be wrong nearly every time and still collect a paycheck?

They're not really in any position - no pun - to swat his hand away. It looks rather personal! Where the heck are their knees?

Yes, and isn't it amazing that you can take a forecast that is likely not accurate beyond 24 hours and turn it into a 10 to 15 minute segment of "news"? Tell me three things in 60 secons: How hot/cold was it today (to satisfy my curiosity), tell me how hot or cold it will be tomorrow and tell me if I will be needing an umbrella. I, the average person, does not care about pressure systems, dew points, millibars, the weather outside of a hundred mile radius, etc, etc.

I think he is a little to touchy-feelySick Sick . His right hand and finger are just way too close for comfort.d'oh! Shame on you I have taken yoga and thank goodness our instructor didn't act in this manner.

I do believe he has a "handle" on the situation. Yes, that is the janitor, and his parole officer says that since he's gotten out of prison and gotten a job, he's a new man....

I don't like my job at all!! But if I could do what I really enjoy, I'd be a party host, or event host for TV, or radio. I love working with the public and I can pump up a crowd in no time! I love it.Dancing

With that tumescent belly and those lascivious hands, he in no way portrays a very inviting picture of 'YOGA'!


I'm sure I'll love my job, but that's a real far cry at the moment: first, I have to struggle to get into a college, then slog to get through every year, then for entering a post-graduation program, and then getting through that!

Sure don't enjoy the hoops I'm having to go through for 'The Job'!

In THIS very case I'd like to be their (pupils') lawyer.

Is it difficult to get a job even to flip burgers?

Sure! The kids looking for part-time or summer work are competing with retirees whose pensions aren't enough.

I tend to agree.

At 40 I am considered "over-qualified" and too old for applying for a new job.
It seems there is high demand for qualified maintenance guys, plumbers, electrician and hairstylists. Not for white shirts. flipping burger is not popular over here but similar jobs are now all in the hands of new immigrants from north Africa. they cost less, don't know safety rules or ask for salary increase. It would be difficult to find a job as a delivery boy nowadays.
So yes, better stick to the old job, no matter if you don't like it.

Actually, he isn't the instructor. He was just passing through the neighborhood and stopped to lend a friendly hand to some folks who looked like they needed it.

I wanted to grow up and be an architect. It took years of study and many long, sleepless nights. I wish my parents had had the good sense to make me take golf lessons, instead.
