Good job, bad job October 7, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
OK, this is a post that specifically asks for answers so that a) I get some comments and b) I remind myself that I’m not that badly off. But as I sit at my computer on a Friday night, translating an insurance policy and thinking, ‘What could be worse?’, I would like to be reminded which jobs in the world really are worse. Whose (working) lot is worse than that of a (technical) translator? Have me whooping for joy as I realise that I am lucky not to be a Silesian coal-miner, if there is such a thing, or make me feel bad that I dare to complain when I could be an Uighur seamstress (again, if there is…). And if anyone can give me some random tips on a lovely job to switch to, then I’d be quadruply happy.
OK, back to the grind…
