Liftbridge Control Center

Lift bridge over the Mississippi River in St Paul. This control center lift bridge crosses the Mississippi River. Downtown St Paul is to my right. I couldn't imagine sitting in that small building all day for a job, waiting for boats to pass so I could push a button to lift the bridge and allow large boats to pass through. I certainly could not, but would this be something you could do for a living?

Great pic. Someone very communicative and interactive by nature could be in trouble with a job like that. But people do jobs that we cannot imagine ourselves doing to earn a living.
