Governmental Regualtors don’t have it that easy people!…health inspector/sanitarian

Ok… so I graduated from a fine public university in the great state of N.C in 2000 and became a health inspector or Sanitarian.

I worked in the field for 5 years and by the end was absolutely dying to get out!!! Luckily a reprive came at the hands of a job offer in South Korea for my husband.

Why you ask was I dying to leave my job??? I don’t know how many times the individuals whom I inspected would thoughtlessly say,”Man, I wish I had your job. You get paid to sit on your butt all day! How much do you get paid to do that?” or the classic “My tax dollars pay your salary!” when someone got pissed. These 2 phrases automatically told me #1, they thought I was lazy and had a fat butt and #2 they thought they were my boss! You try to reason or inspect someone who thinks that your lazy and their employee and see how it works for you!

Add to this the fact that many of the guys I inspected probably made more than me with only high school degrees, and you’de see why being a regulator wasn’t all it was cracked up to be!
I got a 4 year degree for this?!?

I’m looking at going into nursing but we’ll see. I don’t want to jump from the frying pan into the proverbial fire!
