You Work Where You Can

Feb 25, 2012
You Work Where You Can

Those who know me know that I didn’t have the best childhood and my relationship with my parents isn’t all that great. I left the house when I was 18 because I recognized staying would have been detrimental to my health but despite all that, I have to say I am so grateful for all the values my parents instilled in me. They taught me right from wrong, when to stand up and when to walk away, and the importance of hard work.

I learned from my mother and father that you take the jobs that are given to you even if it’s something you think is beneath you like hanging address signs. It’s work and you work where you can.

Now a days I am aghast at how many people believe they’re entitled to specific jobs and pay because they have a college degree. Sorry but that piece of paper doesn’t mean anything. You need the experience to back it and if that means taking a crap internship, you do it. Sadly though, many people don’t have these values and as a result, they toss away opportunities because they think they deserve better. I wish they’re parents had taught them what I learned– they’d be better off for it.

I know exactly what you mean! I work with a bunch of people who have little work ethic and are always complaining that they are only being paid $10 an hour. I’m sorry, but for the amount of “work” they actually do, they should be happy they are getting paid that much. It’s so frustrating to me that I get paid almost the same as people who don’t even try to do a good job.
