Job Description

PARENT
Job Description

This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way, I don't believe
any of us would have done it!!!!

POSITION :
Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma,Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop

JOB DESCRIPTION :

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.

RESPONSIBILITIES :

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 th e phys ical 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,an embarrassment the next.

Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end
product.
Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work
throughout the facility.

POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT & PROMOTION :

None.
Your job is to remain in the same position for years, witho ut
complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that
those in your charge can ultimately surpass you

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE :

None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.

WAGES AND COMPENSATION :

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.

BENEFITS :

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.


Forward this on to all the PARENTS you know, in appreciation for
everything they do on a daily basis, letting them know they are
appreciated for the fabulous job they do.... or forward with love to
anyone thinking of applying for the job.

** AND A FOOTNOTE **
THERE IS NO RETIREMENT -- EVER!!!
If you are fortunate enough you will become grandparents!
