When Turtles and Snails Collide

Your new job is air traffic controller on a planet where everyone gets around in huge hot air balloons rather than cars or trucks. It’s a busy job. There is one day when you feel a bit tired and the balloon bus nearly collides with the balloon oil tanker… luckily you woke up in time and were able to get them to fan each other away, safely.

It isn’t the most boring job you could think of, though it might be the slowest paced job. Whatever accidents there are take a few minutes to happen versus a few seconds in a car back on Earth. Well, you have time… what would be the slowest paced job, the job where nothing happens very quickly? Not counting the Maytag repairman, that was just fiction after all.
