    Jobs You Wish You'd Had

    What jobs do you wish you'd had when you were younger?

    Some jobs I wish I'd had.

    • gas station jockey
    • electrical/telephone lineman
    • gofer
    • bicycle courier
    • Pony Express rider
    • mammoth hunter
    • atlatl/bowmaker/slingmaker
    • blacksmith
    • logger
    • raftboat pilot
    • privateer
    • anything in a helicopter
    • test pilot
    • sergeant-at-arms
    • knight's squire
    • beer taster/beer brewer
    • automotive mechanic
    • pool boy
    • just about anything on any ship of any historical period, except for the barrel boy or a stoker

    What I don't want to see is the Bills winning a Super Bowl. As long as I'm alive that doesn't happen.

    Colonel - if you moved to Japan you'd be just the right age to start that job, and you'd have 20 years of job security ahead of you to look forward to.

    A more succinct way to put it:

    Right age, wrong country, move to Japan.

    That's the office where the way-too-serious people work, the types who don't have any fun, and then enforce their no-fun way-too-serious worldview on everyone else.
