Sentence of the Year.... So Far

I thank God daily that I do not participate in the physical workplace of today's America. I just barely got away by the skin of my teeth after the Millennium turned.

It is a hell unimagined by my grandfather and I think only hinted at in my father's day. They would both turn over in their graves to see what we are today.

Yeah Casey, I got out four years ago, seemed like I'd never make it before some sort of heavy iron grates slammed shut in front of me.

BTW that blend picture is incomplete. There are no fat people or old ones or ugly ones.
Flagrant use of euphemisms doesn't make the truth any easier to accept.

Maybe the author is some sort of —ist: Fatist, old-ageist. He should have used Barbie dolls.

Maybe that's why we need Bernie now more than ever: age is the next frontier of diversity.

Nah. Strike that. Libs want stainless steel and odorless comity. Nothing that smacks of individuality; besides, the old men have the power. Rage against that, too. Now Bernie is out.

They want must be hell in their minds. So frig gin confusing.

I only associate with work entities via pixels and have been self employed since 1986.

To go *somewhere* chosen by someone else and do *something* chosen by someone else for an amount of consideration chosen by someone else is insanity, as evidenced by what you see everywhere now.

For most people, it seems, someone else makes all of the major decisions.

Is it any wonder that no one knows what to do and everybody looks to others for direction?

@Chas, there's a reason there are no fats, olds, uglies in that picture. They don't conform.

Only fully moldable minds need apply, and only for the predesignated proper time period.

There is no place here for *individuals*.

And when BigCo. 'empowers its customers' it is just offloading work that should have been done by BigCo's employees, had they not been cashiered in favor of 3rd world built 'apps', 'webforms', 'self serve kiosks' ad infinitum.
