World's Best Knitting Jobs

You are looking at what must be the world's best knitting job. We were leaving a parking garage last week. When we arrived at a similar booth as pictured here, the man put down his book, took our ticket, fed it into a computer, and collected two dollars. He picked up his novel, pushed the button to open the gate, and waved us on. I thought to myself, being the single minded creature that I am, 'Boy, that must be a great job for knitting!' I began to imagine myself bringing my carefully prepared lunch, my knitting bag and a cooler of ice tea, (we drink sweet iced tea here in the south...or 'Coke'...not 'soda' or 'pop'). Anyhoo, I think the only real drawback would be the pay...what, maybe six or seven dollars per hour? And, that there isn't much room in there. Bet there might be enough for a laptop, though! So you could possibly blog and knit!
'kay, think I am getting a little carried away, here. Can you tell I haven't knit much lately? Hope you guys are having a good weekend. No free magazines yet at my new job, but I am working on that. I opened a crate of magazines yesterday to set-up a store-which-shall-remain-nameless, and low and behold, what do you think was right on top? Interweave Knits fall issue...in plastic, cause it has a neat little pattern bookof scarves for free. Of course, it isn't as free as I hope to get it!! You can bet the knitting section of every store gets very special attention from me. Yummy!

Eh, not sure I'm ready for that job in the booth, sucking fumes all day, despite the knitting opportunities. That's creative thinking on your part, though!

I never thought of that....hmmmm...too bad we don't have parking garages in our town.
