Looking for a job...

Still looking for a new job. I'm signed up to all these employment web sites that send you jobs that fit your critera, and it's amazing what comes under the "Lab Technician" Umbrealla. A jobs well a job title - caught my eye today.

ARTIFICIAL EYE MAKER - TECHNICAL OFFICER.

So being the nosey parker I am, I went and checked it out further.

Essential: Minimum High School Certificate; Good Communication skills; Completion of 12 months training for Apprentice Artificial Eye Maker or Dental Technician.
Desirable: Previous experience as an artificial eye maker; Medical terminology; Laboratory Experience.

How on earth do you get to be an Apprentice to an Artifical Eye Maker? And what's the connection between Artifical Eye Making and Dental Work? Have I been wrong all these years - is the eye bone connected to the jaw bone? And the hip bone is connected to the arm bone?

I'm just baffled by this. I cannont imagine who would want to make eyes? When someone is five, do y'think instead of wanting to be a fireman, they're wishing to be eye-making??

What an interesting sounding job that would be. I wish I had eye making experience.

The truely sad thing about all this is the more I think about artifical eyes, the more I wish I knew this was a viable career back when I was in high school. I would adore this! Think of all the interesting people you'd meet! Think of the interesting things you'd...see!

And I bet you'd have to do artifical eyes for animals and taxidermists and everything!!

I frighten myself sometimes.

It'd be a great conversation stopper:

"So what do you do?"

"Oh, I'm a legal secretary. What about you?"

"I'm an artificial eye maker."

Pregnant pause.

"I make artificial eyes."

"Oh...right."

"Heh, bet you almost said 'I see' there, huh?"

Legal secretary smiles and sidles away.
