At right, a sign posted outside a blocky building near the hotel where M and I stayed in SLC last weekend. If I took drugs, I know that sign would keep me out. If I'd been hired there, I'd go up to the door of the building and yell, "Hey, where's my boss?" and when my boss showed up, I'd explain: "Sorry, I came here to report for work, but I use drugs, so the sign says I have to stay outside."
I'm tempted to make a big copy of this sign and put it up next to the coffee machine at work. Or maybe the medicine cabinet that has aspirin and such in it.
In other news, this just in, from a spam message I received today:
we are specialised on live ornamental fishes with more tham 10 years of experience !!
Which is good, 'cause fishes with less tham 10 years of experience tend not to be very good workers. They probably use drugs, too.
And this from another spam:
Sick of your STUPID friends on BIG money because they went to college? Are you INTELLIGENT, not earning enough or can't land a JOB interview? Does the prospect of studying hard and wasting years of your life and THOUSANDS of dollars so you MIGHT get a decent career sound dumb? Would you rather be earning the BIG money NOW?
I don't think I have any STUPID friends, really; what I'm sick of is the STUPID drug-using fishes with less tham 10 years of experience, who are on BIG money because they went to college. They wasted years of their life and THOUSANDS of dollars and now they can't even enter the office 'cause they use drugs! Stupid fishes.
(Except that reminds me of George Hitchcock again. "They're not illiterate, those fish. . . . They know a thing or two." But by now you probably think I am on drugs, so I'll stop.)
