Do You Like Your Job?

When I was a kid in high school one my first jobs was a busboy at Perry Boy's Smorgasbord in Salinas, California. You know, an all-you-can-eat joint, I lasted less than a week. I was lucky to get a gig working all night at KWYT-FM, which happened to be an automated "Beautiful Music" station.


I loved it and as they say the "rest is history." Are you happy where you work?






A job in Hollywood or the music industry might sound fun.  But would it really make you happy?  Don't think too hard, because apparently the answer is YES.


A new study surveyed people in a bunch of different industries to find out which jobs make us the happiest.  And three of the top five are GLAMOUR jobs that come with at least some level of fame.


The five jobs with the highest satisfaction rate are video game producer . . . film director . . . music producer . . . comedian . . . and neurosurgeon.


It seems like they should have put "successful" in front of a few of those though.  And since when have COMEDIANS been happy?


Unfortunately the five jobs that make us the most miserable are a lot more common:  Stock clerk . . . cashier . . . janitor . . . machine feeder at a factory . . . and telemarketer.


The study also looked at which states are most satisfied with their jobs overall.  The top five are Hawaii, Alaska, Wyoming, New Mexico, and West Virginia.


In last place is Massachusetts, followed by Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
