    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.

    9-5 Not For Me

    I work the night shift as a housekeeper at a local hospital. I like it very much. There is always something to do to keep you busy. I have realized that I am a night person and dont have a problem being up all night. I also dont like it when I have to sit down in one place and be...

    I Could Never

    Ideas come to me at late hours of the night, I could never sit down for that many hours without my butt getting numb. I enjoy being ouside. No, I could never work a 9 to 5.

    It Would Have Been Easier To Forgive.

    24 years ago I was supposed to be aborted. My parents made the mature decision that they were not emotionally ready to raise a child. It would have been one of those despised "convenience abortions." My mother made an appointment and went to a clinic. Because she started...

    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...

    Don'T Do It Any More

    I couldn't do it anymore. I got pregnant, left on mat leave, couldn't go back. I just couldn't do it. So now I work from home, it helps, I can contribute financially, and don't have to go back to that life again. I make more now then I ever did before. It's freeing. Not having to...

    Actually, no one is cut out

    for the sedentary lifestyle that modern life has become. It has many negative health consequences even if you aren't anywhere near being obese. Sometimes, I do some squats just to get my heart rate up a bit and pump that blood around. 3 sets of 12 does a lot.

    I am made for a 9-to-5 sleeping in my bed.

    I am convinced of this because I find myself yawning all the time while at my 9-to-5 office job.
