Jobs Not Named Steve
I have never worked a job I liked.
Anyone who tells you that is lying
I have worked jobs that were tolerable
and those that were not.
The pay was always lousy
and many of the conditions too.
The workers always played against each other
or imagining it.
And the one job where they wanted
me to join management,
I quit and moved to a whole
new city entirely.
A job is necessary and hopefully temporary,
that is all.
Anyone who says any different is trapped
or crazy or your boss.
