No rant here, just some “groaners” and hopefully a few chuckles.
Working Man (or Woman) Blues
My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned … couldn’t concentrate.
Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn’t hack it, so …they gave me the ax.
After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn’t suited for it. Mainly because …it was a so-so job.
Next I tried working in a muffler factory, but that …was exhausting.
I wanted to be a barber, but …I just couldn’t cut it.
Then I tried to be a chef — figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just …didn’t have the thyme.
I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I…couldn’t cut the mustard.
My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found …I wasn’t noteworthy.
I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I…didn’t have any patients.
Next was a job in a shoe factory; I tried but I …just didn’t fit in.
I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I …couldn’t live on my net income.
Thought about becoming a witch, so I …tried that for a spell.
I managed to get a good job working for a pool-maintenance company, but the work was …just too draining.
I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes, but I was fired because I …wasn’t up to it.
So then I got a job in a fitness-center, but they said I …wasn’t fit for the job.
Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking and I …was discharged.
After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was …no future in it.
My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it …was always the same old grind.
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Romans 13:9
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.
– Mahatma Gandhi
In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
