What Part of Your Job Do You Hate Most?

Jason English

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. In my 7th grade English class, we were assigned pen pals from the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. We must have gotten a late start, because we only exchanged letters once. (I guess calling us "pals" was a stretch.) Did you keep in touch with a pen pal? Did you ever meet in person?

2. If you could go back and relive one weekend of your life, which weekend would you choose? Would you change anything?

3. Let's pretend you're a high school senior trying to decide where to go to college. Now let's pretend you can only apply to fictional colleges from movies, books and TV shows. What would be your top choice? Your safety school?

4. In the interest of making your life slightly better, your boss says you can eliminate one responsibility from your current job. What would it be?

Last week I asked for suggestions for questions, which I'll be using for the next two Friday Happy Hours (paternity leave starts next week). Many thanks for the great ideas! Have a great weekend!
