People sometimes say to me that my job (Resident Instructor at a group home for developmentally disabled adults) must be so rewarding. While it is, at times I still really feel like saying this:

It's still work people! LOL

Hauser LOL,

Andy, I understand how you feel. I work in a hospital and have for almost 40 years. I like helping people and it keeps my perspective grounded as I can always find someone worse off than me. I have heard that comment countess times and I agree with your statement. It is still work. I cannot count the number of people I have been instrumentas in helping to recover from one thing and another and a gratifying as that is some nights I come home and just fall into bed exhausted from the physical and mental workout the job has given me. Fortunately it pays well.
