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."
