Many people find desk jobs boring and feel like they would be better off doing any other job. It could be working with kids in a school or working at a hospital, or being a travel vlogger. And that's exactly how this preschool teacher feels. She loves her job of being a teacher and she can not even imagine sitting at a desk and working the whole day.

The text overlay on the video reads, “I'll never understand an office job, I make 23$ an hour, hanging outside with the coolest 4-year-olds, I talk about dinosaurs and unicorns on the daily... Desk job? Could NEVER be me." The song, "Customer Service" by Sugar Pit plays in the background.

The video went viral with about 659.7k views and 53.8k likes. It is captioned, "And I can make my living doing this." Many people on TikTok had different thoughts about desk jobs. @heyitsadimari commented, "I get paid 32 an hour at my office job and I could never hang out with kids." @ohmymolly14 shared, "Desk jobs can provide a lot of stability + benefits, which can be very appealing to certain people." @user44131546067 said, "The overstimulation when they start to scream and cry, at the same time, I could never." @talduh expressed, "I would rather sit behind a desk for 17 hours a day than be stuck with kids... and I'm currently a nanny." 

Many also agreed with Payson and wanted to know how she was being paid so much. @meggentryart wrote, "I get paid to teach art and it literally brings me so much joy, can't imagine anything else, haha." @absentlymindedlyabby commented, "Preschools where I live pay $16. If it paid 23, I'd definitely switch." @mbdaviis pointed out, "I'm a nanny and cannot imagine not enjoying the sun and books and being free." @fairyonaberry said, "I could never be at a desk all day. I love the crazy kid energy."

In one video, a student asks their teacher, "Why do you always wear all your pants all the way up?" Everyone has a good laugh about it and then the teacher replies, "Listen to me, high-waisted and low-waist pants are more flattering than low-rise. The low rise should have stayed in the early 2000s and early '90s. It did not need to come back." Her colleague then responds, "She gave you a fashion statement. Let me just be honest, I don't want my crack out and I got a fupa... so I'm pulling them up." The video ends with everyone again laughing after listening to her answer.
