paper-pusher

i like to describe my job as "glorified data entry." of course it's more than that, but i think this glib little phrase sets forth the core, the seed of my job that sprouted into a gazillion other things. i mentioned this to a friend/co-worker once (one with a much more lofty-sounding title). "hardly glorified," he sniffed.

smiles vanished.

at that point i realized that jobs are kind of like siblings. NOBODY can make fun of them except the owner of the job (or sib of the sib) in question. ain't nobody can talk shit about my brother or my job but me. you can mock what i do, but don't you dare do it in front of me.

that said, you are free to mock my coworkers and my brother's friends all you want, either in my presence or out of it.
