What Kind of Job

A friend’s daughter was asked what she wanted to be once she was a grown-up. She took her time to think about it. Others suggested some jobs, like doctor, journalist etc. Her reaction, Neehhh, too tiring.

I don’t know whether this is universal or not for kids these days. I only know that when I was that age “tiring” was not one of the benchmarks about my possible future job. It is now though.

Making computer games was something she would consider. She is 10.

    when i was that age, everybody in the class was educated to say ‘i want to be a scientist’!
    now it sounds ridiculous to me, cos that’s almost one of the most tiring n boring jobs i could think of ;)

    When I was that age I wanted to be a fireman or a police man, I’ve got to agree with the 10 year old they just seem so tiring…lol
