Reason #172 Why I Love My Job

My Assistant

It’s 10am on a Monday morning.  It’s a beautiful sunny day. All of my neighbors are at work. I’m working too, but I don’t have a case of the Mondays like I bet a lot of my neighbours do.

Instead of office chatter, the whir of photocopiers, and the insistent ringing of 20 phones, I’ve got my iPod cranking out whatever tunes I feel like listening to at whatever volume I want. Oh, and birds. Lots of birds. And my dog assistant occasionally yelling (barking) at said birds.

Did I mention that I’m working?

Some of you may be thinking that I’m just working on my tan. Well, that’s true, but I’m also working on legitimate work. Lately I’ve been busy with a lot of mobile app testing. That means that I can work from anywhere, at any time. I don’t need an office or a lot of equipment, and I’m not restricted by 9-5 CST. For me that means freedom. For my clients it means cost savings, which in itself is a type of freedom. I get to do what I love on my own terms with minimal overhead, and I can pass those savings on to them.

It’s a win-win.

Anyway, I better rotate my chair. I’d hate to get a sunburn at work.
