Employer: ACOSTA

This one seems pretty awesome. Any job that involves working with a “plan-o-gram” has to be cool. The possibility of “special projects” is very exciting as well. And I have tremendous experience with stooping and kneeling on a daily basis. I haven’t sat for more than 10 minutes in about a year, but I have a lot of experience driving a car for extended periods of time (mostly between Atlanta and Baton Rouge). As for communicating well with others – hey, read The Wisdom!

I suppose the gist of this job is that you drive around to stores and make sure the products of ACOSTA clients are displayed correctly (according to the plan-o-gram), have the right specials posted and stuff like that. I’d rank this position fairly high up the chain in that mythical “if all jobs paid the same amount” consideration. Alas, I doubt this position pays all that well – and I’ll have to see about lifting those 60 pounds. Lifting 24.5 pounds a thousand times a day is no problem, though.

    Warning! Warning!

    Actual Wisdom to impart here:

    Make sure you don’t lift and hold the kid on the same side all the time. I made that mistake for the first 4-5 years and have left-shoulder problems these 14 years later.
