The good news is that Some Guy Named Bob has not been contacted by anyone concerning his latest mishap. He left his insurance info with the golf course folks, just in case. Some Guy Named Bob leaves his insurance info in a lot of places.

Some people, and you know who you are, have insinuated that I might have made up the whole Some Guy Named Bob character. Oh, were it so. Some Guy Named Bob is a real character, I mean person. A character who is also a person. So, stop your doubting.

Have you ever thought about the career that clearly does not suit you? Often people will say, "I couldn't work in a hospital because I can't stand the sight of blood." That sort of thing.

For instance, I could never be a cop because I am not a black or white kind of person. One trait that makes a good policeman is the ability to block out human emotion. I would probably get fired for giving too many people the benefit of the doubt.

I'm really good at doing repetitive tasks that require skills at organizing and order. Many folks couldn't stand that type of work, but it is just up my alley.

Good thing we are all different.

Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I am really good at eating. I would make an excellent chocolate taster.

The Bug said...

Ooh - I want to be a chocolate taster too! Except for mocha - I don't like coffee.

I've been thinking about this a lot because I will eventually want to find a job closer to my new house (& with the new student loan legislation that day may come sooner rather than later). My dream job would be as the office manager of a smallish enterprise - where I could be Queen of not too much.

I'm in the same boat -- everything comes in shades of gray. I wouldn't be good in the military, either, because I'm not one to blindly follow instructions. I like order and repetition, though.

As with Kurt, my forte lies in the field of chocolate I believe.

Megan said...

I'm good at putting papers in order. As long as they aren't my own papers.

Barbara said...

I like organizing and creating order too.

Vive le difference!

I always believe you're telling the truth, always. I don't doubt that Some Guy Named Bob is real.
