    Don'T Do It Any More

    9 To 5

    I don't think I have ever had a 9 to 5 job and doubt I could I have worked most of my life on an on call basis or shift work and it is just normal to me. Ok maybe I'm not normal I think that is a setting on the clothes dryer.

    That's Why I Work In Care

    I have never enjoyed working the 9-5. Whilst I wish I had more patience to deal members of the public, I am glad that I do not have the patience because my lack lack of patience lead me to a career in care. It takes a lot of patience to work in care, I work in autism and I don't...
