New Career Goals

Posted in eff this, self realization, work with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by thedith

Lately, I’ve been really into the idea of selling out and going corporate.  To hell with helping others and trying to make the world a more positive place; fuck the non-profit, not-for-profit, and NGO world — I just want to make piles of cash at a ginormous, heartless, corporation, so I can go swimming in my gold coin vault like my name is Scrooge McDuck.

I’ll take 3 martini lunches, and tell people “my assistant will take care of that” and everyone will look at me like I’m crazy, because uh, I AM the assistant, and why am I always coming back from lunch drunk?

This. Is the dream.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Kids Are Hilarious

6 year old I babysit:  Where were you?

Me:  The front desk people wouldn’t let me up, so I had to wait downstairs.

6 year old: That’s stupid.  You should have just come up.  I’ll tell them tomorrow to do that.  They should know that by now.

Me:  Thanks.  I appreciate that.

6 year old: (looking at my bare legs) It’s cold.  Why aren’t you wearing leggings or tights?

Me:  It was actually really nice out today and I didn’t feel like it.  It’s the perk of being a grown up.

6 year old:  Lucky.  Well, you should shave your legs.  They look scratchy.
