A Happy Minimum?

Being a 60-plus woman myself, I was at first cheering Carole Bennett in her quest to find a job in this town at her age. But then I thought, wait a minute, did she say she was “bored”? After all those careers, jobs, businesses owned, she now finds herself bored? Rather than volunteer, become a mentor to our youth or take art classes, she decides to take a minimum wage job from, most likely, a college kid, single mother, or underemployed person so she will not be bored.

I’m happy for her that she is no longer bored; however, I cannot help but think she is so typical of a lot of people in this town who do not have to struggle to survive here. Clearly she has enough income to live and not have to work any longer and, like I said, I’m happy for her. She worked hard for that privilege, and she deserves it. I just wish that she had chosen a more charitable way to cure her boredom.
