Hello, Royals Review peeps. It is Monday afternoon. There is no game tonight. I know that more than one of you are reading this whilst on your day job, and more power to you if that’s the case. So, we’ll have a special work-themed version of the classic off day off topic thread in honor of, well, Monday being Monday.


  1. What is the worst job you’ve had, and what is the best job you’ve had? Why?
  2. In an alternate life, you made a few key decisions differently. What are you doing professionally in this life?
  3. How old were you when you first had a job, and what was it?
  4. What’s one profession that is generally considered to be “cool” that you would never want to do, even if you had the skillset for it?
  5. Which one of your hobbies could you realistically turn into a job? Alternatively, have you ever chosen to keep a hobby a hobby and refused to monetize it?

BONUS: Would you rather work as a flight attendant or a semi truck driver?
