Those Crazy Kids

This week, I had the distinct pleasure of spending a day at an elementary school for career week. I went from classroom to classroom talking about my job. The kids ranged in grade level from kindergarten to 3rd grade. Boy, are they funny when they’re that age. And boy do they ask some funny questions. Here were a few of my favorites:
Student: “Do you ever have one of those days when you just want to quit?”
Another student: “Do you ever have a bad day and wonder why you chose that job?”
A student who didn’t ask what he really wanted to ask: “When the aliens … what do you like about your job?”
Student: “Do you have a good boss?”
Me: “Yes, I have a very nice boss.”
Different student: “My dad has a nice boss. He is the boss.”
Student: “I was born in Maryland.”
Me: “Me too. What city?”
Student: “Pennsylvania.”
Student: “When my dog gets wet, he smells like a wet dog.”
At least no one asked me something as uncomfortable as what was asked of a guest from one of our hospitals:
Student: “Do your doctors ever accidentally kill people?”
Crazy kids.
