Sometimes you have to ask yourself – is it just the Monday morning shift getting you down? Or should you consider a career shift? Because if you’re considering of what path to take, you might just want to consider becoming a dancing traffic enforcer.

Ang akong pangayo ra gyud sa Ginoo nga dili ko tapdan ug sakit, nga hatagan ko ug maayong panglawas para makaserbisyo pa ko nila (My family is very important. All I ask from God is that I won’t get sick and that He will keep me healthy so I can serve my family),” he said.
