You might be a youth worker if…
you’ve ever claimed Rolling Stone as a professional expense.
people who’ve just met you ask, “What do you do with the rest of your day?” or “So do you get paid for that?”
you work all year to raise funds for your “dream trip” to Haiti.
“work” includes sampling rides at an amusement park.
you rarely shop for toilet paper because it magically appears on a tree in your yard,
the #1 thing you hear on a long trip is “not McDonald’s.”
the word “family” or “families” was tacked on to your title in the last three years.
you use the words “Jello wrestling” to refer to a job responsibility.
you can write a recommendation letter faster than your signature.
you’ve lost count of the number of times you’ve seen The Princess Bride.
your vacation almost always involves a borrowed beach house, cabin, or ranch.
you have more travel stories than a trucker and better driving skills than a New York cabbie.
