fter all, it's

surgery.
You may have said
this when witness-
ing a job being per-
formed that didn't
seem to take much
SY
skill. But do not be
MANELLO so quick to assume.
(Since people are so
Editorial
funny, this article
Assistant
will not be.)
People tend to
judge other's jobs with little or no
understanding of what training is
involved or what the work truly
entails.
Have you ever stood
before a painting and
said, "My toddler
could do a better
job"? This is so
glib, especially
when you do not
like — or
understand —
the style.
(Besides, your
toddler is the
most talented
in every-
thing, as well
we know.)
Do we see
the work
involved?
The tech-
nique? The
attempt to
communi-
cate or pres-
ent an emo-
tion?
We get the plumber's bill and are
in shock at the charges for such
minor repairs. Could you get under
the sink in such a contorted posi-
tion and manage the repair without
flooding your kitchen? If so, then
why didn't you?
Before you complain about "those
garbage men," consider that you
should be pleased that there is
someone to do the job at all. (Have

"your entertainment partner"

you ever been in a garbage workers
strike situation? That puts whole
new light on it.) Are you so sure
you could lift all that stuff for eight
hours a day and still return to work
the next day?
To the person who knows that all
teachers are just "glorified babysit-
ters," let me ask them to take over
one group of 35 teenagers for only
one day and try to teach them
something. Now multiply that by
several groups, add to the mix the
lack of respect engendered by par-
ents that shows in the kids' attitudes
and then tell me that it's a snap.
When explain-
ing the impor-
tance of dead-
lines to a read-
er, I was treat-
ed to, "I don't
understand how
you get a paper
out each week;
you people just
have too many
rules." And if his
paper were
delayed because
we held up
printing to get
things in "late," he
wouldn't mind a bit.
Sure! One person just could
not understand why his "three-
lines" could not be put in;
just squeeze it onto a page. ),
She works as a reception-
ist? Why, anyone can
answer a phone and direct
visitors to the right place.
Try it before you say a word
more and remember that not every-
one is as nice as you when making a
call or seeking help.
Don't be fooled by the outward
display of demands of a career
choice. If it seems simple, maybe it's
because the person doing it is skilled
at what is being done. Yes, maybe
you could do it, and then again ...
maybe it is brain surgery.
