Here Are The Unofficial Job Titles You Had While You Lived With Your Parents
Lets be real, most of us lived with our parents for more than 18 years but we probably took for granted how much they helped us strengthen our resume. Yep! More than you could imagine…
If there’s one job you’ve developed years of experience in after living with your parents, it’s in Information Technology (IT).
You nourished these skills every time you helped your dad fix the television or set up the wifi. You also got a ton of experience showing your mom how to upload a picture onto her Facebook account. You are, and always will be, their personal IT department.
And your set of skills only expanded after taking on the full-time position as translator.
If your parents weren’t 100% fluent in English, then you were the one handling all important paper work and phone calls for them.
When it came to urgent mandados, you became your parents’ personal GPS.
There was no need for Google Maps or even Apple Maps, because they had you.
But if your mom or dad didn’t feel like driving at all, then you would take on the position as her chauffeur.
And this was the most stressful job ever, because you had to listen to them yell and complain about your driving skills.
After so many hours, you would even hit overtime with your weekend job as janitor.
Mom doesn’t care if you already work as a full-time student. Your clock is her extra loud music and you’re getting up at 7 a.m. on the dot.
And just when you thought you had a few vacation days to relax, you then had to head to your part-time job as babysitter to your younger siblings or primos.
Your days off of school were spent with crying babies, dirty diapers and hundreds of baby wipes.
In addition to babysitting, you were also responsible for being the intel informant every time you were left in charge of your siblings.
As the intel informant AKA the chismosa, you were responsible for notifying your parents every time your siblings misbehaved.
But once you grew tired of being indoors and making phone calls all day, you then moved on to different outdoor, volunteer opportunities.
As a mechanical engineer intern, you learned the names of every tool and became proficient at holding your dad’s beer whenever needed.
Even though it was hard work, all of the labor really helped you get in great shape.
Business trips to la tienda with your mom were probably the most exhausting.
But no matter how many tasks your parents assigned you, it would be enough to pay them back for what they do for you.
