This isn’t as much fun as it looks like!

chopper-net-crop-180.jpgHey, Blog Guy, you give the very best career advice. I especially value your tips on how to know if we’ve made a bad career choice.

Thank you. Here’s something that always works. I call it the triple reality check:

If you’re at work right now, first look down. Do you see the ground hundreds of feet below you? Then look at  your hands. Are you clinging for dear life to a swaying fishnet? Next, look up. Is there a hovering chopper?

If you answered yes to these questions, I recommend you get your guidance counselor’s home address and give it to the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

 Waste more of your life. Join the Oddly Enough blog network.

Oh please. It’s not the same unless they do it without a net…

What are those things on the bottom? Kind of look like tele-tubbies????

Or, are those more people being dangled by their heads? Seems harsh!

I think those things on the bottom are the dummies they ‘saved’ before scurrying up the net for their own safety
