Don’t tell me about work.

I was born to it. I love to work. I enjoy working, I take pride in my work and I love when others enjoy what I do and appreciate it. I hate it when they don’t. This, in very few words, is Yossi.

I guess it is part genetic and part educational, since I come from a long lineage of “working classes”, even if my personal memory does not carry beyond my grandparents.

My grandfathers, both maternal and paternal, worked - practically speaking - to the day they died of old age. One was a tailor, the other dealt in old ironmongery. My parents worked for as long as I remember. In poor Romania they practically worked around the clock to provide for our needs, some of it low-technical labor, some pure black. In Israel, my father met several types of hell when his legs got covered by burning bitumen while covering roofs, when sinking bare hands in the worst of chemicals while cleaning airplane motors, when working second shift in a slaughterhouse cleaning barrels full of blood and walls covered with entrails, with my mother and myself alongside him.

My mother started her “career” in Israel carrying on her back sacks weighing a few tens of kilograms - call it pounds if you wish - of textile material home, where she had to do all kinds of repairs to and then carry back. About a mile away. No sir, no car, no carriage, no bicycle - on foot. And later, when they closed the damn place, she went looking for work in a town further away, waking up 5am, taking the bus to work, back at 7pm. With my father taking care of all domestic duties, and with Saturdays holily dedicated to... house cleaning. She worked to the day she died. And she loved it. I know that if she lived one hundred years she would have worked one hundred years.

I inherited it. That love, dedication, enthusiasm of doing. I brought it all to my various work places and some bosses made their “fortunes” on my qualities. Some others, assholes, did not. Life.

During my professional life I accumulated hundreds of complimentary/appreciation/thanks messages, in a variety of forms: memos, telexes, faxes, and later on - emails, sms’s. While in between jobs, I had to go through the inevitable CV “creation” and while doing it I stumbled upon the original (yet not much appreciated, lol) idea of adding an appreciative quotation per year - mixing sources, expressions, etc. Just for the fun of it, I will do here the same. After all - as said, I take pride in good work. I am beyond workaholic - I am insane.
