The Search For the Perfect Job

This is the story of Nathan’s search for the perfect job. He had just graduated from high school when he started his quest. His first job was as a waiter. He didn’t mind serving food, but what bothered him was that sometimes the clients got angry at him, so he quit.

After that, he tried to work as a mechanic. He didn’t know very much about cars, but he learned quickly. Nathan loved that job. Nevertheless, he found its flaw: he didn’t like getting grease on his hands.

Later on, Nathan tried working as a chef. That job didn’t last very long since he was not a good cook. He was fired on his third day.

Soon after that, he decided to try becoming a police officer. Big mistake! He soon realized that the training was very tough. He wasn’t strong enough for that kind of job. Other than that, he had a big discipline problem; he was constantly getting into fights with other people, so he was kicked out of the police academy.

After all these experiences, Nathan came to the conclusion that the perfect job does not exist.
