Advantages of Being a Temp
You’re only lending your soul, not selling it.
You won’t be there when the fruits of your labor turn rotten.
Trying on a different personality at each new job site.
You don’t have to continually fork over part of your paycheck for co-workers’ weddings, babies, birthdays and anniversaries, or children’s school, scouts, athletic, and band fund-raising efforts.
No one gives you clothes emblazoned with the company logo and then expects you to wear them.
You can avoid the internal “war.” I once Temp’d at an office so divided and filled with hate, one half wouldn’t even speak with the other… it was my job to convey messages between the enemy camps.
Your true Pointy-Haired Boss is usually miles away…and the “customer” PHB can (often) be ignored.
Overtime at time and a half! Woo-Hoo!
Leaving at 4:30.
You get to hear the words, “Good job” and, ‘Please stay” frequently.
You don’t give a rat’s hoohaa what the stock is doing.
Eight Words: “It was like that when I got here.”
