South African tweep opens up about how she quit her professional career to be a petrol attendant and she is proud of her choice.
In a country where jobs are so scares, we are often treated as just a number because we are easily replaced. Tweep @Ayanda_Bianca6 opened tweeted that she quit her job as a graphic designer to be a petrol attendant as it was’ draining her blood and using her’.
Ayanda has a degree in graphic design but works as a petrol attendant as it is less stressful on her personal life and works out to be more rewarding in the end.
Her tweet shows us that sometimes a simple job like a petrol attendant, can be more fulfilling than working a ‘more respected’ job like a graphic designer.
We take jobs for status and forget to look after our personal sanity and dignity. She has stood up for those who have chosen ‘simpler’ jobs in turn for their personal dignity over selling your soul for a title.
Fellow tweeps respected her for her post and reassured her that her job as a petrol attendant is not embarrassing.
Tweep @iamKaylor replied to her tweet saying: ‘There's nothing embarrassing mama .You have a job and that's that.’
At the end of the day, our personal happiness has no price and we all need to remember that sometimes.
