We're all outstanding in our fields
When you are having one of those days when work just kind of sucks and you think your job is a dead end, I have found a job that will make your life seem really good.
While in South Africa, we were driving along this road near the border where there were orange farms.
As we were driving about every 20 yards we would see people just standing in the field...
We finally stopped, curious about what they were doing.
When we asked them, they told us their job is to run off the baboons when they tried to steal the oranges.
That's what they did day in and day out, stand in these fields and run off the baboons.
Compared to this, most jobs aren't so bad. As a matter of fact, some days standing in a field smelling orange blossoms, and looking out for baboons doesn't sound so bad!
