So you're a social worker. That means your life tends to be more "work" than "social" because there's no doubt you've opted for a career that takes long hours of hard work, emotional strain and the feeling that you're being stretched in a hundred different directions. You're doing something that benefits other people and makes the world a little better, a little bit at a time.
One thing's certain about your job, you never know what is going to walk through the door each day. And most of what does would be enough to curl anybody's hair. Just when you think that you've heard and seen it all, something happens to make you realize that you just don't have a clue about people and what they're capable of.
Some of you might even have a double feature of horror every day. That's right, on top of a job that features the worst of humanity and high burnout levels, you might also have children. Which is worse? We're not going to guess but we'll tip our hats to you. Better yet, we'll tip you a tee or hoodie that says, "Social Worker and Mother. Nothing Scares Me."
You're taking care of people on double shifts, and the only thing we're wondering is how the heck you do it. It's got to be a steady diet of coffee and energy drinks, along with the ability to function without sleep. Maybe the explanation is simpler, like you have superpowers. Yeah, that must be it. We even have a tee or hoodie that explains it: "Social Worker by Day, Supermom by Night."
At least you know you can handle it. You wouldn't be in this job if you didn't have brains and compassion to spare. That's why "God Took Some of the Smartest Women and Made Them Social Workers."
All joking aside, your family is what really matters the most to you. And if you're married, you've found a support system that will always be there for you. You know that "Real Men Marry Social Workers," and they're strong enough to take the fallout from your long days.
At I Love Apparel, we know you work hard and don't get the pay or respect you deserve. That's why we're going to make it all better with some great social worker-themed tees and hoodies that will keep you smiling no matter what the day brings.
