PARENT- Job Description


  This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way,

  I don't believe any of us would have done it!!!!



  Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma

  Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop




  Long term, team players needed, for challenging,

  permanent work in an

  often chaotic environment.

  Candidates must possess excellent communication

  and organizational skills and be willing to work

  variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends

  and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.

  Some overnight travel required, including trips to

  primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports
tournaments in far away cities!

  Travel expenses not reimbursed.

  Extensive courier duties also required.




  The rest of your life.

  Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily,

  until someone needs $5.

  Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.

  Also, must possess the physical stamina of a

  pack mule

  and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat

  in case, this time, the screams from

  the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.

  Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges,

  such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets

  and stuck zippers.

  Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and

  coordinate production of multiple homework projects.

  Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings

  for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.

  Must be willing to be indispensable one minute,

  and embarrassment the next.

  Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a

  half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.

  Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

  Must assume final, complete accountability for

  the quality of the end product.

  Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and

  janitorial work throughout the facility.





  Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without
complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills,

  so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you




  None required unfortunately.

  On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.




  Get this!  You pay them!

  Offering frequent raises and bonuses.

  A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because

  of the assumption that college will help them

  become financially independent.

  When you die, you give them whatever is left.

  The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that

  you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more..




  While no health or dental insurance, no pension,

  no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and

  no stock options are offered;

  this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth,
unconditional love,

  and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.
