The actual job? A mom.
Slacker has unlimited respect for stay at home moms. It’s a very hard job because you constantly have to do something for the kids. He himself was a gardener at a motel. He said the job was technically the grounds keeper, which was watering the one plant and pulling weeds from sidewalk cracks. There was no gardening really involved so they had him sweep the parking lot.
Steve thinks you bring being mom on yourself and you don’t pay taxes for being a mom. He was rock picker. Before farmers would plow fields he would have to pick up rocks and fill up a bucket of them again and again. It was a windy, dirty, and dusty job that was miserable.
I used to have to babysit for 10 kids between the ages of 2-7 every single week and only made 20$. There was never a week where one of the kids wasn’t in tears, fighting, or injured.
