This woman is living the (Mr. Darcy) dream!
I saw this Help Wanted flyer in my local grocery store the other day and it made me smile.
The most unusual hours I ever worked were on a swing shift from 4pm to midnight as a copyeditor and proofreader for yellow-page phone directory ads.
There was a day shift too (I shared a desk and a computer with the day shift employee), but as one could earn a few cents more per hour, I decided to work the swing shift.
On my shift, the company building was always dark, empty, quiet, and calm—the only occupants were two small teams of graphic designers and copyeditors. The idea was efficiency—the swing shift copyeditors worked on the ads that had just been produced by the day shift graphic designers and vise versa.
What other jobs out there have unexpectedly unusual working hours?
A great way to store stud earrings and keep them together so that you don’t have to spend time hunting for the other half of a pair in your jewelry box trays is to put each pair into a button.
These particular buttons are 7/8″ in diameter and the distance between the two holes is 5/16″, which makes them big enough to accommodate all my stud earrings.
A package of about 20 basic plastic 7/8″ two-hole buttons cost me around $2 at my local JoAnn store. The fact that they were purple was just a bonus!
