CROSSING GUARD * Children*
by Sharyn Anderson
Since my retirement, l have tried a few different part-time jobs eg. community nursing, because that was my career for 25 years. However, l found this stressful, not the work l did but the travelling time from 1 client to the next client!
2 hours here & 2 hours there, so l stopped that and then was a nanny for 2 young girls after school every day. That was ok but the older child (9) was hard to get on with, she wanted to be the boss, would not let me do my job! At the end of the school year that was it for me.
So recently l applied for a position as a crossing guard for school children going to and from school, 2 hrs. a day, 40 hours a month, can pay for my car, insurance, gas money.
l'm so happy, get up every morning same time ~ something to do ~ it is great ~ cause before l would get up when l did with nothing going on ~ ask myself " what should l do today?" Now l won't be doing that anymore!
Hopefully this job will work, l can't see any reason why it shouldn't. Wish me luck ~~ l am 65 and just can't afford to retire & l still have a lot of energy and l enjoy children as long as they no the meaning of the word respect.
