Gimme another swab, Bob!
Blog Guy, you give great career advice. Can you suggest one for me?
I’ll try. What do you like to do?
I really enjoy cleaning my ears with cotton swabs. It gives me hours of enjoyment.
I see. Then you may want to train for a career of cleaning the barrels on military tanks. It’s pretty much the same principle.
That’s for me! But is there any downside?
Well, yeah, this does violate my number one career rule: “Don’t take a job where you have to stand in the path of something that could pulverize you.” As these photos show, Tank Barrel Cleaning and Tank Barrel Adjusting fit into that category.
I don’t care! This is a dream job for me!
Then follow your dream! And keep in touch if, you know…
