What Kind of Job Do You Really Have?


During college my sister and I hung out a lot during the summer at our job in the local (then) community college. It was an awesome job to have because it was on campus, you could and would take off time to go to class and during slow times you could work on homework or mess around on the computer. Little did we know that it was the time in our life that we would have the most free time in spite of working and/or taking summer classes and commuting almost 2 hours everyday.

To amuse ourselves during slow times, during the long drives, or just to take a break from studying/homework we goofed around. One of the notable things we goofed around with were more descriptive titles for our jobs current and what we were getting our degrees in.

For instance, I was studying to be an Administrative Assistant/Office Manager or in more common terms a secretary. I decided that this would mean (definitions taken from the classes that I had just passed) a lot of Paper Shuffling, Button Pushing, and Nodding and Smiling. I was always particularly good at anything that involved pushing buttons. I didn’t particularly like shuffling papers, but every job has to have a downside right?

Now that I’m a mom I would say that being a mom almost defies the description of all the possible things that you might be required to do in a day including some I still think are pretty gross. Sippy Cup Tracking Device, Special Toy Tracking Device, Chief Cook and Bottle Washer, Laundry Shuffler (because it never really gets done, now does it?), Child Toter (whether in a car or physically picking up), Story Teller, Explainer of Everything Under The Sun, Chief Snuggler, Treat Giver, Good Choice Reminder, and Good Listener, to just name a few.

I’ve had others say that their jobs seem mostly like Babysitting when their actual titles were Teacher and Building Contractor.

So what about you? What creative title would you place on your job?
