WHAT IF I WERE A FIREMAN? OR A BUS DRIVER?

I find it extremely a tad annoying when people are surprised that I don’t typically get weekends and public holidays off work.

As a doctor, I would expect them to be shocked upon hearing that I work nine to five, Monday to Friday, not the other way round.

Someone actually once complained that it wasn’t fair that we were made to work public holidays and I asked them whether they would think it alright if they were to take ill on a public holiday  and on getting to the hospital, were turned back because the doctors were off for the day.

I didn’t receive any reply, of course, so I shook my head, turned and walked away.
