Time for a career change

Well my friends, business is not very good at the Video Poker and Chicken Fried Steak House where I've been working for the last 23 or so years. The economy is terrible and, I'm sorry, but I don't think Obbama's socialism is going to help us. Last night only three people showed up for our weekly Krazy Keno Kaper - Pete, Tracheotomy Trixy, and Glad Hands Steve. It was the most business we've done all month.

I made less than five dollars in tips for the whole night. You trying not only paying your own bills but taking care of seven cats on that kind of money. You couldn't! And some of my cats are special needs. Mrs. Felchington, my pure bread SiaPerz that I paid $600 for at Scamp's has something stuck to her butt fur that won't come off and I can't afford to take her to the groomer. Little Paul Awesome Pawsome the III hasn't peed in the litter box since 1998, and China Doll Pink Nipples pees ALL THE TIME.

So, I am thinking it's time for me to go back to school. I graduated from Weed High School in 1983, and a few years after that I started working on an Animal Care Technition program that Gloria from that Archie Bunker show sold on the TV. Studying animal medicine was a little too hard though and I got bored, so I dropped out of it and decided to try the "draw me" art school that I found on a matchbook cover. I did an AWESOME job drawing the pirate, and I totally got accepted into the Draw Me school but then I found out it cost $500 so I said f-that and got the job at the Video Poker and Chicken Fried Steak House. And the rest, they say, makes history.

But now it is time for a change! I'm meeting up with Reggie tonight and we're going to talk long and hard over some McGriddles about my talents and my dreams and whether or not TV VCR repair is still a viable market. By this time tomorrow I hope to be well on my way to my new dream job...

job market
I think they're hiring at Sewickly's Addition. Staff has been quitting like crazy since they rehired that one guy (owner's son, I believe) who slipped rufies to a couple of patrons and a coworker. One suggestion: hydrate before you show up because you might never make it home.
