Gut Rumbles

disturbing photo

Sometimes, I feel a little bit guilty about not crawling out of bed every morning at 0430, to shower, shave, dress and drive 28 miles to work at LEAST a 10-hour day at a job that I grew to hate more and more every day that I continued to do it. When those feelings hit me today, I usually supress them by taking a nap, or eating a Mexican popcicle.

Now I have another cure for my feelings of guilt. I can go see this picture and refresh my memory about what working in a corporate environment REALLY is like. Yeah. It SUCKS ASS.

Despite 20+ years of working in a corporate environment, I never did develop a taste for ass. The sad fact is... in THAT world, you can't be a "mover" if you don't Hoover... and I didn't. I'm just glad that I had the chance to bail out the way I did when I did.

I may not have a job anymore, but I have a MUCH better taste in my mouth.


"Disturbing photo" is an understatement. Oy!

The three reasons I never got into management where I work (Orange County Public Utilities): I don't kiss-ass, back stab or lie!

Cap Harley--- those are the THREE COMMANDMENTS of corporate success. If you can't kiss ass, backstab or lie...well, you're just fucked.

Been there, tried NOT to do that. Got fucked by people who did.

So this is where all my new visitors are coming from! Judging from the turnout, there are an appalling number of people out there who have never had the pleasure of seeing a man wedge his face between another man's cinnibuns.

I'll have to continue to bear that burden alone I suppose, until I can finally quit my job.

Wish me luck, Acidman. And thanks for the link.
