    Is That the Job You Want?
    Is That the Job You Want? It is amazing the diversity of jobs we have had and will perform. Some of us strive for that position always. Others wind up there by happenstance. For some, it is because they don’t have alternatives.Even as a high school kid, I took some jobs...

    Jam packed with employee stories from many angles, and what really strikes me is the honor you still have for your beloved father. He had core values, I suspect he was a man of God, and he followed the Code of Honor. I never waitressed, but my first formal job (aside from picking garlic in Gilroy, California with the migrant farm workers) was at McDonalds. Much like a university education, I learned principles that I later applied to the Los Angeles County Jail Ward for the 'fresh' arrested and 'scraped off the streets." You have all the key points here. The only other point I would like to gently add is that one needs to pick up the 'culture' of the environment. If the patients in the Jail Ward could hold me hostage and cause a full-blown 'lockdown' of that 15 cm steel door, hey, I need to shoe them who is boss. At first, I thought the LAPD were rather brutal at clobbering a convict to the floor, but I quickly learned that the same person I was feeling empathy for knew he was HIV Positive and was on PCP (elephant tranquilizer) and wanted to bite off our hands. So your story on the hand-that-almost-got-amputated, it resonates. Gave me flashbacks for a moment there. Fantastic writing - You Should Write a Book!

    Well said on lessons learned!
    And Management, please remember that your staff is a reflection of your abilities. Like a sport(s) team, the players maybe in perfect shape and the best of the best however if the coach provides a poor playbook and expects his players to compensate for his/ her incompetence... ...well we all know the outcome.

    "Don't look down on manual labourers." This is definitely true. In my experience they are your good plumbers, electricians, car mechanics and the like. Great article @Ira Friedman!

    If you show that you like the way the company works, your boss and your boss's bosses will be happier to make you an important part of it. Also, get to know your co workers. If you seek to understand your co workers, you may avoid potential disagreements.

    Please note: I don't mind if we actually 'don't Share' for just a week or so, to give me time to 'catch up' before it goes to other Hives. Brain injury, you know. Please be patient with me. Thanks! 🍯
