I've talked over with the world, and they feel the same way about you.

I mean all the people in it. Collectively. Real hard. Real sudden. No time for them to brace themselves. Fist to face.

Maybe nothing. Maybe something real bad. The law of averages says that you all deserve it.

No. I have a job where I have to interact with people. I'm not people person. They're worse than usual today and my morale isn't exactly skyrocketing.

Ug, the public is the worst. The people that came to my library all had a sense of entitlement. I worked with them for 7 years before I got out. So if you want help, we'll go door to door punching people.

Brass knuckles, baby. Every jaw we break is one step on the road to contentment.

No way. Today I feel like I'm fourteen and I just got out of school and I'm just about to play some SNES. Today I feel the Holy Spirit inside me. Man I feel awesome.

And, yes, it's awesome.

Try being in charge of changing your newspaper's comic lineup sometime. You'll love it!

At least you get to see people. I'm in the middle of writing a letter to the FDA, and am chained to my desk until it's done. The only thing getting me through right now is hot chocolate and the Battleship Potemkin score by the Pet Shop Boys.

I have only a day and a half left before four weeks of vacation, so I'm pretty pleased with the world. We get 32 days off every year where I work. The Swedish government is a kind mistress if you treat her right.

I like customer service. Most desk jobs sound unrelentingly boring... plus I worked as a photo lab tech for six or so months, and it was the worst part of the two year tenure at my first job.

I like to think of myself as more of a Hobbes.

Hobbes was right in that we are all horrible creatures. He was wrong in that he thought the best solution to that was to have the most horrible amongst us running the show.

Let's not talk about work, shall we? At least you haven't been able to go home at all for 3 weeks because of your job.

Better yet, at least you didn't just start a job right out of college that's the first step in a career you already know you don't want.

You say this so certainly. How do you know that's not the case for me too?

I want to kick it in the balls.

Or punch it in the tit, if the world is female. I.. don't know.

Can I join in the punching?

I finally managed to scrounge up a part-time job in my new home, and within two days lost it the day before I was going to start thanks to nepotism.

Geez, that does suck. Punch away.

Care to spill some of the juicy details?

my car broke at my brothers college town, three hours and many hundreds of miles south, on saturday. engine troubles. mechanic checked it out, forgot to cap the oil pan, so we had even more issues. after much fucking around, it got fixed, and when the mechanic was test driving it to make sure, some douche in a brand new truck backed into my car and fucked up the hood to the tune of 1500 bucks of repairs.

this, an hour before i drove down there to pick it up, so i wasted my day, my time, the gas, and all sorts of stuff, and came back with no car.

so fucking pissed.

Care to spill some of the juicy details?

I applied for a job at the local drug store for part-time work (gotta support the freelancing till I get a studio job whenever), and after passing the math test and a quick chat with the owner and a manager was quickly hired. Got written into the schedule and everything.

Was due to start this morning, but yesterday afternoon, a mere day and a half after getting hired, the manager called me to say that the owner's daughter really needed a job, and he'd decided to give it to her instead. She apologized and said they'd keep me on file, and that was that.

So once more I'm jobless, the freelance is sparse and the studios that haven't outright rejected me are taking their sweet time. Wheeeeee.

Well...I guess I don't. I was trying to make you feel better with my own misery, I guess. Can I at least join in on the punching, too?

I think, as far as the short-term goes, Shivam's winning ("winning" not really being a good thing, sadly).

Of course you may join in the punching, C-Man. There're faces enough to go around. Punch till your arms are stumps.

I'd like to buy the world a coke.


Or, at least that's what I think of whenever I see this thread title.

I'm a Pepsi person myself.

Unless it's a Vanilla Coke.

I'm sure the Coca-Cola company appreciates your sentiment.

In an era where my husband was desperate for a job, he finally landed one with very decent pay. As soon as he was hired, the company was busted for fraud.
