Is the grass greener on the other side? Let's play a game to find out.

I am a nurse and am jealous of office workers. I want to be an office worker so I can sit, relax, take breaks, and drink coffee while working.

is the grass greener on the other side? You tell me and to keep it going... what do you dream or wish for and why???

  • Yes, but it's green because it is full of cow pies and you have to step in every one of them to get through the pasture to find another fence with green grass on the other side of it!

  • Honestly the grass is beautiful on my side. I LOVE my life as a stay-at-home Mommy and Wife. I wouldn't trade it for anything. :)

  • I love being a SAHM but sometimes I wonder if having more money would really make our family better off. We don't go without, but I would love to be able to just go buy whatever we wanted lol. Not crazy, just like lots of new school clothes for the kids, better school supplies, all that kind of stuff. But I do value my time as being a SAHM over having more money, so I don't think my grass would be greener lol.

  • The grass may be greener on the other side, but you still gotta mow it!

  • lol, I am an STNA and I wanna be a nurse sometimes. There is this one nurse at work though that is a TOTAL bitch!! I'm going to college in the fall to be a surgical tech though and I think that whether or not the grass is greener on the other side is a matter of oppinion. I am happy doing what I do because I love my residents

  • As a nurse, you probably feel like you've accomplished something at the end of the day, helping top make people better etc. I just get to come back to a desk full of paperwork every day.
