Did you ever have a job where you hated having to enforce its rules? I certainly have.
This reminded me of one of the characters in my new book, The Jade Castle. Miss Porter is a social services agent responsible for determining the safety of children in homes. She’s the case worker for the main character of my book, Bekk, who’s older brother is now his guardian, since their parents death a year prior. Of course they aren’t a fan of Miss Porter, since she has the power to split the brothers up, but it’s part of her job.
So my Theoretical Thursday is this:
If you could pick any job where the person who is being ‘judged’ has to switch with the person DOING the job for that specific instance, what occupation would you pick? (Side note, no one can hurt the other one. This isn’t for revenge, it’s to facilitate understanding of what they are going through.)
This was a tough one for me. I think with all the issues involving police, I would choose that profession.
