Benefits of not working 9-5

Warning: If you’re a 9-5 worker, you might not want to read this.

I don’t work 9-5.  It’s just not my thing.  Some might miss the “benefits.”  The funny thing is, I think I have better benefits.  For example:

1 – I can get my hair cut at 2 in the afternoon on a Wednesday (which I did today).

2 – I can have a piano lesson at 2:30 on a Tuesday.  Then, when I get there and my teacher says, “I haven’t been out of the house in a while,” I can go shopping with her for two hours, and then have my lesson (which I did yesterday).

3 – I can spend two hours in bed on a Thursday morning finishing a good book (did that last week).

4 – I can teach an adult education class on a topic I love on Wednesday mornings (which I’ll be doing in the spring).

5 – I can decide I’m not going to work today, and don’t have to ask anyone for the day off (which I did a lot over the summer).

6 – I can go to the library on a Thursday morning.  Or the bank.  Or the bookstore… get the idea.

7 – I can meet Grandma at 4  pm on a Tuesday to show her the Walkway Over the Hudson for the first time.

Basically, I can do everything during off-peak times.  Plenty of parking, no lines, no waiting, excellent service.

I have no problem paying for my own health insurance if I get the perks above instead:)
