Working for the... Crap, I have to work this weekend too.

Have you ever thought about how backwards our system is?

I have. In passing a few times, but never really in depth. Until now. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for any work at this point in time, especially when I look around and see people losing their jobs left and right, but I am in shock at the actual amount of work I have to do. I thought this was going to be easy! Psh. It seems like our collective pay scale is reversed. Those who do the most work, manual labor, construction and such, have limited earning potential. If you sit in a chair and make phone calls and sign papers, you can make millions.

The older I get, the more I appreciate hippies.

I think I am just upset because I have the distinct pleasure of making coffee during the Superbowl. But all work is dignified, right? Unless you're like a prostitute or a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
