Being an adult isn’t always a lot of fun. There are things to do, places to be, bills to pay. For most of us, that requires having a job, and most of the time, those jobs aren’t the most exciting things in the world. But when you have responsibilities, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.
Especially when you’re a parent.
Kids don’t always understand the things their parents do to ensure there’s a roof over their head, and food on the table. And even if you were to tell your kids all about it, odds are they won’t care all that much.
One dad proved this theory and posted the evidence on Facebook, in a hilarious video of him describing his job and everything it entails to his tiny little baby.
In the video, Kevin Payne is holding his infant in his arms and giving the little tot the lowdown on Daddy’s “really quite exciting” role on the Technology Resiliency Team at a bank. He spends a few minutes detailing the intricacies of the position.
He explains that he ensures “that various applications in the bank, based on criticality, have… built-in resiliency between data centers.”
As he regales the child with the less than thrilling description, the kid starts nodding off. Dad jostles him awake and continues, and as he goes on, the terminology he uses gets more and more sophisticated. And boring.
The kid keeps slipping out of consciousness, and it’s hard to blame him as his dad babbles on and on about disaster recovery, and data centers, and zzzzzzzzzzzz.
“In order to ensure that our applications are resilient between data centers on both production and DR infrastructure…”
Hilariously, Dad keeps waking the kid to make sure he’s listening, because he wouldn’t even have the super boring gig if he didn’t need it just to keep the kid in diapers so that baby better give him the respect he deserves! He drives a Dodge Stratus!
