Who doesn’t love Parks and Recreation? It has to be one of the most ingenious shows that never fails to make us laugh even though it is based on something that could be so very boring – a parks and recreation government department! This got us thinking, if every parks department had a Leslie Knope then we would all be applying to work there and here is why.
They Never Seem To Work
The whole parks and rec team never seem to actually work… which is amazing! We wish we could have a job where you go in and just have fun every day.
When They Do Its Fun
But if things do get down to business, it is always fun like organising events and doing crazy campaigns which is tons better than any other job we can think of.
Always Eating Yummy Things
Yep, it’s all about those giant waffles, bacon and burgers; who could say no?! Even though we’d get so fat it would be so worth it!
We’d Spend Everyday Around Andy aka Christ Pratt
He is hilarious, ina band, good looking and the resident shoe shine guy that would always be able to cheer you up, make you a song or just give you a giggle.
And Get A Shoe Shine
So naturally, we would have to get our shoes shined! This is such a random thing to do but would be super cool to get down at work.
Ron Would Be The Coolest Boss
Ron Swanson is the ideal boss, he doesn’t really care what is going on, loves breakfast food and is a pretty chilled character. So, naturally, we would want to work for him.
And Tom Would Keep Us Entertained
Tom always has a new business venture, gossip or general crazy phase going on which would lighten up our Monday mornings and never fail to keep us entertained.
They Have Fun Staff Outings
Hunting trips, camping, picnics, you name it and the parks and recreation team have probably done it; with a lot of banter along the way of course.
You’d Never Have Work Stress
You wouldn’t have any stress from work to take home and worry about as the whole office either does not care or just takes life so lightly that they wouldn’t let it bother them, which is actually really great.
Uniform? Anything Goes
There would be no more stressing over uniform or wearing uncomfy smart clothes as anything goes in the parks and recreation office… even pillows taped round your head!
We Could Laugh At Jerry
C’mon, it might seem harsh but we would so have to join in on the banter and have a laugh at Jerry too. He can’t help but land himself in those awkward and embarassing situations and we would so have to laugh.
The Staff Are Like A Family
The staff are all there for each other in bad times, times or need or to cheer each other up and they really are like a strong family unit which is amazing to find in a work place.
Finally, To Be Besties With Leslie Knope
She has to be one the funniest, coolest and most inspiring people to be able to work for and we know that if we worked in the parks and rec office, she would literally be the biggest and main reason; because Leslie Knope is fabulous.
