Thanks for the article. I will have to remember this once school starts in the fall and when I finally get back to work.

You know, where I worked it was pretty physical.  unloading liquor trucks, which felt pretty good really.   It was a great workout.

Have always heard the term "cushy desk job" and always thought that would drive me crazy.

When I broke my hip, they put me in the office for awhile.  Cushy desk job my @ss.  I was more exhausted staring at a computer screen all day.

I got laid-off from a physical factory job with some heavy lifting involved(don't miss that). Realizing that I can't do that anymore, I went back to school so I could get one of those "cushy desk jobs". I will be graduating next spring and hopefully straight into a new career. I will have to take a test during the summer so I can become registered in my field, which means higher pay than without taking the test. But either way it will be nice to see a pay check coming in again.

Hey Baker,

hope you didn't think I was dissing desk jobs.....my point was....I found that harder than my physical job.  Mind draining, body exhausting.

so the cushy desk job?  not so cushy.

Graduating next spring!!!!  it's been a long road for you......lots of chaos.....but the goal is in sight!  yay!!

How are the chompers doing?  any better?

I don't miss the heavy lifting either......50-75 lb cases.....truckloads of 2-3000 cases, sometimes twice a day......and then the beer truck would show up lol.

non-stop slugging.....did me in.

Bun, I always had the same thoughts on desk jobs and never thought that I would have one. But I can't go back to the physical labor when I use a cane from time to time and cannot be on my feet for 8 hours. I need to do something since I'm not disabled just unemployed. Sitting in classes for 5 hrs a day 2 days a week should help get me ready for a job. I'm still having a hard time seeing myself sitting a desk all day.

I used to have this argument with hubby. Hubby has a very physical job. To him I sat at a desk all day in front of the computer. But sitting and doing paperwork was only part of my job. We had a big facility and I was alway put and about. Maybe if I had stayed in my office more I wouldn't have such hip problems now. But working your mind is just has tiring has lifting boxes. I only wished I had my power chair when I was working that would have made things a lot easier

Absolutely agree CupCake.

When I was in the office, the day seemed twice as long.....hip, back, legs, feet, eyes and brain ached.

Gained lots of respect for office workers after that.

Actually, there is pride in ALL work.

Not to mention when you work in an office you always have to have a smile on your face. When working on the dock I could let a few curse words fly when I got mad
