What's the best job you've ever had?
this past weekend I got to reminisce with a medic I used to work with on a private ambulance service in southern Illinois. we talked quite a bit about what we've done since then.
his path was medic->police officer->line cook->head chef
my path was E.R. tech->medic->comp sci student->software tester
looking back, being a medic was, hands down, the best job I've ever had. the people I worked with were amazing and hilarious (that dark humor not everyone appreciates). the job was full of chaos and constant challenges and for some weird reason, I just really liked starting IV's. and the stories...oh, the stories. if only the inside of an ambulance could talk. unfortunately, I had to move on because the pay was incredibly awful (I found out I made as much as an assistant manager at taco bell).
so, what's the best job you've ever had? are you still doing it? if not, why did you leave?
