I'm much less ambitious than the rest of you. If I ever have to return to work after FIRE because of the need for medical insurance then I would only work where I would not have to use my brain and where I would not be in an “office” setting.

Well I think I might enjoy an "I'm lazier than you are" contest with you, Leolo. I'm not at all ambitious. Teaching just seems like an easy way to bring in a few bucks without much effort.

I'd be happy with the video rental store job, too. I do like jobs that don't require any thinking. One of my favorite jobs was working at a factory. I could easily do the work without thinking too much about it, so my mind was free to dream. It also required enough hard physical labor that I didn't need any exercise otherwise.

The only problem with these "mindless" jobs is that they seem to involve more hours than I really want to put in. So maybe by teaching, I'm really lazier than you. ;-)
