Prison VS. Work
Just in case you ever got the two mixed up, This should make things a
bit more clear....
IN PRISON...you spend the majority of your time in an 8X10 cell.
AT WORK...you spend the majority of your time in a 6X8 cubicle.
IN PRISON...you get three meals a day.
AT WORK...you only get a break for one meal and you pay for it.
IN PRISON...you get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK...you get more work for good behavior.
IN PRISON...the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK...you must carry around a security card and open all the doors
IN PRISON...you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK...you get fired for watching TV and playing games.
IN PRISON...you get your own toilet.
AT WORK... you have to share with some idiot who pees on the toilet.
IN PRISON...they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK...you can't speak to your family.
IN PRISON...all expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work
AT WORK...you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they
deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.
IN PRISON...you spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
AT WORK...you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside
IN PRISON...you must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK...they are called managers.
What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple.
Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter.
