16 Sep If real jobs were the same as on Home & Away
One of the most Important tv series in Australia is Home & Away, It have been on from 1988, almost 30 years, for you that are a follower of this show, just YOU can understand what we are talking about here.
If real-life jobs were the same as they are represented on Home & Away, we would
All love our careers. I want to work in Summer Bay because:
– Doctors: can fix most injuries within minutes with just a bandage. A really serious
injury means the person goes to hospital and is in a coma for a few nights, but you
still just bandage them up and they come good.
– Chefs and waiters at the diner: only ever work the lunchtime shift and spend almost
all of it gossiping with the customers. Most customers only ever order an OJ, and
even then they leave without drinking it, so it’s easy work.
– Caravan park owner: the only work involved is handing out the key when someone
arrives. You don’t even need to do this very often, as most of the guests are friends
who need somewhere to stay after moving out of Irene’s house.
– Bait shop owner: Alf has the most cruisy job. He puts the “open” sign out in the
morning, and takes it in at night. What a career.
– Boat tour operator: to be fair, this was a tough gig for Alf. He only did tours
occasionally and it almost always resulted in someone falling overboard, getting lost
at sea, or stranded on a deserted island.
– Teacher: a very popular job for the characters of Home & Away. No qualifications
required – a lot take the job directly out of high school, or after working at the diner,
without bothering with a teaching degree. The job includes walking the corridors,
chatting with students, and if ratings are low, having an affair with a student.
– School principal: same as teacher except they walk with a clipboard in their hand.
Expect a promotion to principal of Summer Bay High after teaching for a year or two.
-High school student: typical day involves walking along the beach to school, hanging
around the lockers, then remembering that every period is a free period so walking
back down the beach to the diner.
– University student: getting into Yabbie Creek Uni is a sure sign of being written out
of the show. The best way to stay in Summer Bay is to keep repeating the final year of
high school for four years.
– Lifeguard: walk along the beach. Not much chance of getting wet as the beach has
lots of walkers, a few surfers, and no swimmers. This job is ideal for getting the heart-
throb characters to get their gear off more often.
-Gym instructor: there’s only 2 pieces of equipment in the gym so very little
instructing is required. Should consider getting a second job at Noah’s Bar in the surf
club next door.
– Police officer: for a small town, Summer Bay has some pretty hardcore crime going
on. This job is always interesting as there’s only one police officer to handle the
whole gamut from traffic duty to murder investigations.
