to laughing out loud @1130pm
80% of the reason i go out @127pm
is 2pick brains of local constituents &stump 4pulling back reigns on a gov out of control
walking 2horse shoe, i run into tripod that started at horse shoe that night -they're on their way out of town now.. jim, karissa, &"elvis" i name him, for that hair curl -lucky guy.
jim says, "..but we don't like your hat."
that's ok -good thing you're not a totalitarian.
they crack up &realize that, oh yeah we can still banter.
"how are you ok with giving the gov a part of your paycheck you'll never see?" #ss
most people are super weirded out, but that's ok by me. a stranger with no intentions?! that'd kinda weird me out, too! actual boots on the ground, rob called it once.
we must meet the people where they are.
that should like, be a thing / who will supply that demand? i hope you make tons of guap
no more coffee @529pm
5 yrs residential / 10 yrs employment history - ya never think this stuff matters, ya know?
"help wanted" @651pm
signs these days state characteristics employers are seeking in new hire, like "hard working." BAHA! nothing i detest more than redundancy, &yet, with an entitled generation brainwashed into thinking they are worth $15/hr, it serves employer best to set expectations right away. you're not better than fetchin' someone's covfefe for a year.
just the other day, lady walks into office looking to make some easy dough off referral program we offer. (i should mention, this town has a serious drug problem &weekly junkies come in looking for freebies: A.C., bathroom, coffee /water machine). this 1 was creative: she walks in w/sunglasses on (1st clue) &skims brochures 4 opportunities.
welcome.. how can i help?
hold on, /she doesn't look up, gives her pointer finger &eventually meanders over. suggests, under her breath (2nd clue) that I give her a referral code, that she'd give me a cut of her winnings. (i find it in my heart not to laugh in her face, but really, who does this? who thinks things are free? but, druggies have a will &they will find a way).
um, this is a professional environment. i don't need $20.
oh, so you'll do it for free?
no. here in America, we help ourselves.
stunned, the lady still in sunglasses hurls some expletives on her way out.
have a nice day! my coworker says (to everybody leaving).
PISSED, she says, "no i won't!"
later, coworkers see her in the park, asking STRANGERS to partake in the program 4her. no shame. imagine if she worked this hard for a j-o-b. but townies will keep giving these people dollars &loose change &have them continue living day-to-day when they really need dignity, humble pie &a job that builds their character. at least think about it, lady.
help wanted /i don't think she wants it, but we can pray that God keeps a knockin'.
