I believe you left out one very important description: "And other duties as assigned". (This is an actual addition to a job description which is an unfair catch all to mean whatever the person in charge determines).
ps my word verification is "unpai" which of course is like the description--unpaid!

Once again you have made me laugh. You are an excellent wordsmith.

Add in 'drag your ass into work every day to pay said bills' and that describes my life, too. I do the Interior design and exterior maintenance very badly :(
