He Says/ She Says: New Career

She says: I think I want to change careers.
He says: And do what?
She says: Be a doctor, well, a physician assistant.
He says: Why?
She says: Because I’ve always thought it would be cool to be a doctor, and rich.
He says: Well I think it would be cool to be a sports broadcaster so I’m going to quit my career and do that.
She says: Are you making fun of me?

So maybe it’s another phase of mine, but he can’t be keepin a woman down.

OMG…I have actually had this conversation with MY husband before! Yes PA and sports caster and all!! And yes he was making fun of me and made me cry…I was like 7 months pregnant LOL

Lol. Your hubs is too cool. He reminds me of mine! I keep telling my hubs that I still would like to be a cashier at wal-mart someday. It’s just something about scanning stuff while talking and figuring out what folks are cooking based on their items that appeals to me. He says I can do it as long as I don’t mind keeping both jobs. Not the point.
Anywho, PA’s have all the perks of a doctor as far as giving orders and prescriptions. The pay isn’t too bad either!

Andrea says:

My DH would be the same, I love how he always plays devil’s advocate to help me really think something through and then totally backs me up when I go for it.

PA can be an awesome job, very demanding as well, I’m sure you’d be great at it too if you decide to go for it.

Dalia says:

you and your hubby crack me up!! I know how you feel, i get the same reactions from my husband.

Mrs. K says:

That’s why God put these men in our lives. I can appreciate the realness. My hubby does it all the time. But for real, if you are REALLY thinking about becoming a doctor or PA go for it! Being a doctor is a tough job though–I am one and I’m married to one. I guess we all think about doing something different at times. My husband always wanted to be a pro baseball player but he sometimes say his future career is a math teacher or a janitor (he goes back and forth). Of course, I hope he sticks with his current day job until we at least pay off our gazillion dollars in student loans debt. I’ve always wanted to be a waitress. We’ll see 🙂

Sarah says:

I’d recommend NP over PA. I think you would miss the news though!

Kellie says:

My dream career is to be a news reporter. Can I have your job when you switch careers? Like seriously I’m just looking for a break. Majored in Journalism however I don’t have a tape to show for a job. Any advice?

Emily says:

I’m an NP and while I love my job, I’m not currently working with patients because I couldn’t find the right fit when I moved (I’m working at a college of nursing instead and love it!). Just remember that with any job in the medical field, the hours are going to be pretty sucky (long days, weekends, holidays). I have no doubt that you could do it! (Of course, there are exceptions to all rules…maybe you’d find the perfect fit!)

Your husband is hilarious! love He Says/She Says. Kinda adds humor to the book I have to read called They Say/I Say….pretty drrrry.
