DESCRIPTION OF A JOB VACANCY FOR A MOTHER'S POST
Mother, Mum, Mama, Mommy or Ma
JOB DESCRIPTION :
Long-term team player needed for challenging permanent work in an often chaotic environment.
Candidate must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour on-call shifts.
Some overnight travel required including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities.
Travel expenses will not be reimbursed.
Extensive courier duties also required.
For the rest of your life.
Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs a couple of bucks. Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.
Also, must possess the physical stamina of a packed 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 from someone just crying wolf.
Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges such as small gadget repairs, mysteriously sluggish or stucked 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 and embarrassed the next.
Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys and battery operated devices.
Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
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 :
Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you.
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE :
None required, fortunately or unfortunately.
On-the-job training guaranteed for life on a continually exhausting basis.
WAGES AND COMPENSATION :
Get this right - 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.
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 and free hugs for life if you play your cards right.
Forward this on to all the Mums you know in appreciation for the tough job and everything they do on a daily basis.
Let them know they are appreciated.
