If your grandchildren would describe what you do/did for a living, how would they describe it?

I work with 3 computer screens with boxes and numbers showing, and my hands are like an octupus with phone, radio, keyboard and mouse. If all the boxes and numbers are behaving, sometimes I get a chance to chat on GN!

Granny goes to school and shouts at people. She makes them be quiet and do writing.

My GC would say I cut fabric into little pieces, mix them up, sew them back together and say it is a blanket.

My granny goes to work to hurt ladies. She makes them lie on a bed or chair and plucks them with wax, needles and an electrical contraption.
Then she makes them promise to come back next month.😱

Nannie used to clear up dog poo, feed hundreds of dogs and then play with them.

Grannie plays with mud and she sometimes helps us to make animals and bowls with it and then she cooks them in her oven.

Mine would say that Nanny would sometimes have to shout at people to get them to send her some money, then, when she gave the money to somebody else they would say”thank you very much , I never thought I would see that
money again”

Like GagaJo, 'Grandma used to go to school and make the children work very hard doing writing and sums.'

DD used to think that DH (her daddy) was a spy as he worked for the Queen in a secret job.

Nanny drives a big van very very fast, doesn't stop at traffic lights and shouts "nee nah nee nah nee nah! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

LullyDully Fri 10-Apr-20 08:28:50

Granny doesn't do anything.

NaN reads to children and tells them off and blows a whistle!

My Granddaughters tell people I talk to old people on the 'phone about the weather. I'm Warden of a sheltered housing scheme.

Missfoodlove Fri 10-Apr-20 09:45:07

jdga Please explain! Cannot figure it out

Grannybags Fri 10-Apr-20 09:48:12

Our Granddaughter once said "I know Grandad sits in his office upstairs all day but what do you do when I'm not here?"!

Grannybags Fri 10-Apr-20 09:49:43

By the way we were both retired at the time and Grandad was just keeping out of the way so he didn't have to play pirates or whatever!

I am given money for telling lies.

cossybabe Fri 10-Apr-20 10:17:08

I used to work for a pharmaceutical company - my children called me a drug pusher

Caro57 Fri 10-Apr-20 10:20:41

Mine would say I talk to people about their having a camera put 'where the sun doesn't shine'

Mollygo Fri 10-Apr-20 10:21:42

Grandma sits in front of a screen and pushes buttons to make things happen on the internet. Sometimes she shows other people how to push the buttons too.

Tracyhhblue Fri 10-Apr-20 10:22:45

I tell people off when they are not working hard enough or when they say they’re sick but are telling porkie pies.

I crisis manage on a daily basis, resolving issues others find impossible to deal with (missing shoes, pens, papers). I also ensure the smooth running of the business by making sure there are adequate catering facilities and the menu is to the liking of clients. Clean clothes and bedding are a minute away for residents thanks to my mastery of the laundry equipment. I have considerable negotiation and conflict resolution skills, dealing daily with disputes over ownership of electrical items and controls. I also ensure the health and safety of residents by providing a thorough cleaning service, medical advice and assistance and equipment. Additionally I also upskill the residents currently by providing educationally beneficial master classes in various subjects including cookery, mathematics, art, English, science etc.
