I have never had a job but my personal definition of work is getting up in the morning, or whenever the work begins, and taking time out of my day in order to bring home a source of income or paycheck to support myself and/or my family. One memory I have that is important to my social construction of the concept of work is when my grandfather retired from his job of being a bus driver… for about a week. He went straight back in order to not only get more money, because he received an extra check, but also because he enjoyed it and had been working there for so long. The only thing I cannot really understand about work is whether one should enjoy it or not. I always heard that the way to know whether you have a job is if you hate the work you’re doing. The only way to have a career is to have a work that you enjoy.
