How the world works
I was shelving in the fiction section, at the "P's" in "Twain, Mark" to be more specific, when one of my big time managers walked by. We both sighed in the exact same way at the exact same time. Then we regarded each other.
"I'm standing here," I said "Tired of shelving, thinking how fun it might be to make big decisions and boss everyone around."
"And I'm standing here," My boss said "Tired of petty responsibilities, and refereeing infighting, while longing for the zen-like peace of shelving."
Then we realized that we just happened to look exactly alike! So we swapped jackets and glasses and agreed to change jobs for a week.
"I'll be keeping my salary though." My boss said.

Post a Comment
If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
