So, basically your reply when asked to supply facts to back your claim is "No, I can't be bothered. You must gather the facts to back my statements yourself".

Tricky line of reasoning.

My very first paying job was shoveling horse shit into the back of a truck. It was difficult and exhausting work and did not pay very well. The metal shovel itself was huge and heavy and hard to handle. Sometimes, the weather was cold, which only made it more difficult.

Now, I scoop up cat shit with a very light weight and small plastic scoop. The work is much easier, and I get to be indoors, so the weather is no longer a factor.

Additionally, my clients seem to appreciate my work more - the horses never expressed any gratitude whatsoever, but the cats seem to, although I might be deluding myself.

I guess what I am saying is that, with enough hard work and perseverance, it is possible to advance in life and achieve your dreams.

You just need to set your goals high enough.

The size of the goal is inversely proportional to the size of the shit-shovel. Got it!

For TrojZyr, some of my work;






These are from my own imagination, I often have to copy copyrighted characters, but I prefer doing my own stuff. It's nicer when our customers have someimagination! laugh

Thankyou, I take enormous pleasure in it! laugh And I have a pay rise coming, plus there's the bonus that what with my expert whingeing, I am soon to be getting a little workshop of my own, away from teh noisy machinery and awful radio stations of the main factory. Actually, they don't play much radio now because of me. Apart from the machines, I get to work in relative peace, free from the idiocy of the local airwaves rubbish.

I will and have bust my ass. I will never quit and have not called in sick in over a year. I have always looked at my jobs as a transition from one thing to the next bigger and better thing. I think it was President Roosevelt who once said that "there are many ways of moving forward". If you are sitting still then you mine as well be dead. I am not talking about sitting on your ass enjoying the spoils of your riches but I am speaking of settling for less.

I have worked a variety of jobs and one single book that has played a role throughout all of them is THE SATANIC WITCH. I cannot thank Dr. LaVey enough for writing this. This book has allowed me to fine tune the art of misdirection as well as my Lesser Magic in order to receive job promotions.

I currently work in a very scientific field as well as a professional salesman.

Very impressive. I particularly like the first one, where the devious-looking man is sheltering behind the magician he is paying to invoke mayhem against the inhabitant of the castle.

Well, that’s how I read it.

Dilbert Eat Your Heart Out

For my main job, I sell matchsticks in the town square. The pay sucks, but the benefits are great, and I'll admit I would probably sell more of them if they weren't used first.

But when I really need money, I sell blood. Okay, I know, I know that's pretty low on the totem pole, and you're probably sneering at me right now.

Yeah, okay, it's pretty shameful, but...

At least it's not my blood. wink
