Yesterday I ran into a guy I used to work with at the data slaughterhouse at the hockey rink. After exchanging pleasantries (“pleasantries” being me talking smack after we shut his team his team out 4-0), I asked him how everything was going. I knew that he was still toiling away in that godforsaken hellhole and I was curious if things were as I remembered them. He dropped this gem on me:
“Once I stopped caring about what was happening around me, I was a lot happier. When I cared, management knew it and they crushed my soul.”
Good to hear that nothing has changed since the day I was laid off.
