Tag Archives: someone help me get a great job please!


you know how it is when you learn something new all of the sudden it seems to pop up everywhere?  or, you get a red car and all you notice on the road is red cars just like yours.  since i’ve been looking for a job, i can’t help but to notice all of the jobs people are doing that i never really paid attention to.   like the security guard who sits in the port-a-potty all day long (see port-a-potty post).

i very well remember being unemployed while living in california.  i resorted to selling roofs for home depot.  i’m not sure what i was thinking when i accepted the offer after they informed me that i would sell the new roof to my prospect after  i climbed up and measured the square footage myself.   that is the kind of thing  people resort to out of desperation.  that is the last time i was desperate for a job.   i’m sure the port-a-potty guard never envisioned himself in his current position either.

just the other day i got really scared for my future employment when i saw this:


 “The great mystery is not that we should have been thrown down here at random between the profusion of matter and that of the stars; it is that from our very prison we should draw,  from our own selves, images powerful enough to deny our nothingness”
