 I asked this question at work "You've no doubt heard the expression "They couldn't pay me enough to do that job."  What job would that be for you?"

 Some of the answers I got where, coal miner & sewer pumper.

 One man who went into the service when he was young and worked on the railroad most of his life said he couldn't think of any job he wouldn't do.
 I asked, "How about pounding steaks & putting in railroad tyes?"
 He replied,"That's not that hard."
 Then I said,"What about building fence and digging all the post holes by hand."
 His answer was "How long of a fence do you want?"

 Give me your answer"What job could they not pay you enough to do?"

Exterminator. Hands down. No way. Did I tell you all about when we were in Fl and our mouse trap (in Va) caught a mouse ... most likely the day after we left for our 2 week vacation. Uh hu. Let's just say what I found in my lazy susan upon arriving home made me scream/jump/turn white and call the exterminator ~immediately~. Think of the meat on the counter scene in the movie Poltergeist ... so, um - yea. An exterminator - not enough money in the world.

Anything that has to do with confined spaces like....plumber or underground things. Nope, don't like confinement.

Stacey, Dad always told us that it didn't matter what job you did as long as it was an honest job and you did your best. I don't think I'd want to be a plumber though. LOL

If you have time, stop by the Writing Nook. I've started my Christmas book swap for the 3rd year in a row.
