    2. That technology has made your job redundant.

    3. That you spend your days reading.

    4. That you either look like this...

    5. Or like this:

    6. That if your focus is children's books, it's all playtime.

    7. That you only work in libraries or public schools.

    8. That you don't need an advanced degree.

    9. That the job is easy.

    10. That you're technology averse.

    11. That you have to be of a certain age.

    12. That you're a bunch of prudes.

    13. That you're an introverted loner.
