Got this in my e-mail

Since it's a Monday thought I would post it.

I Don't Wanna Work...

1. My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned. I couldn't concentrate.

2. Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

3. After that, I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it - mainly because it was a sew-sew job.

4. Next, I tried working in a muffler factory, but that was too exhausting.

5. Then, I tried to be a chef - figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just didn't have the thyme.

6. I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it I couldn't cut the mustard.

7. My best job was a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

8. I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patience.

9. Next, was a job in a shoe factory. I tried but I just didn't fit in.

10. I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

11. I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.

12. So then I got a job in a workout center, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

13. After many years of trying to find steady work, I finally got a job as a historian - until I realized there was no future in it.

14. My last job was working in Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

15. SO, I TRIED RETIREMENT AND FOUND THAT I'M PERFECT FOR THE JOB!

I love those puns! It's so good to realise that a lot of words have two or more meanings! Thanks for making my day! I was all morning busy packing, so now I decided to have a break.

They're good!

Number 4 had me baffled for a while because here a muffler is a scarf. I kept trying to think of the connection between scarves and being tired. I assume a muffler must be something to do with sound reduction.

Dear Patty ~~ I am so sorry you had a couple of nasty comments sent to you.
I loved that list and No.15is one for a lot of us - - Retired.
Thanks for your comments - my frig is well covered, but I live alone and the kids keep buying me more and more. Sorry you have snow so early as I guess it makes life hard for you. Take good care and I hope you are sleeping wel.
Love, Merle.

Oh Groan!! Those were funny. Sign me up for the Retirement job. Although I don't have any previous experience - I'm sure it is something that I would pick up quite quickly! ;-)
