What a way to make a living

As I was walking out the door at 5 sharp the other day, my boss asked how I was liking the area. I realized that if I didn’t have a boyfriend to go home to every night (and his martial arts classes to go to), that I’d be pretty bored and lonely between 5 and 10 every evening.

At the newspaper job, I felt like there was no way I could have a family because I didn’t have time or energy to do much else when I was getting off work at 7 or 8 each night.

So my analysis is, those life-sucking reporting jobs are good for young single people with nothing else to do. If you don’t want your job to equal your life, you get off at 5 and spend the evening with your honey.
