In my experience, the hardest job is that of a work-at-home mom. It sounds ideal (I can have a career and see my kids!) when in actuality it's more like trying to manage the expectations of a child who thinks you are available (she's right there!) when in fact you are not.
When your children reach school age, I hear there is still the expectation you will take care of all household duties while doing the job that actually earns you a paycheck. That's two full-time jobs, in case anyone is keeping track.
It's easy to see why someone would want to quit. Job, motherhood, housekeeper, whatever.
Have you seen the video of 25-year-old Marina Shifrin quitting her job at Next Media Animation in epic fashion? It went viral this week and features Marina dancing through her office to Gone by Kanye West.
For those who haven't seen it, I'm gonna post it here to bring you up to speed…
Well, Marina's video (aka Quit-eo) just inspired Brenna from Suburban Snapshots to create a video of her own. It's the work-at-home-mom version because Brenna is tired of cleaning toilets while fielding conference calls.
She's also got some pretty good dance moves…
I predict Brenna's video isn't the last "quit-eo". I'd like to see a quit-eo from a teacher. Or an employee at American Apparel. Or, hmmmm…. perhaps a member of Congress???
