Paleo-Anthropology is Better than Office Work

1. Anthropologists actually have a good reason for getting up early in the morning. They have to dig up all those bones before the African sun melts their scientist faces. Where as data can be entered at anytime and yet they still require you to be there at 9:00am.

2. Pithhelmets and comfortable, khaki shorts are prohibited in your office.

3. Fossilized people don’t need their phone messages nor do they have expense reports.

4. It is conceivable that an anthropologist could secure a grant to dig a whole to China. Could you imagine getting paid to pursue your childhood dream?

5. Anthropologists frequently work outside.

6. Scorpions, rattlesnakes, and malaria are better than CEO, CFO, COO and human resource personnel.

7. Bones don’t file well into green hanging folders.

8. Anthropologists frequently work with Europeans and Europeans believe in afternoon napping—Score!
