Sucking the Teat


To pay the bills (here, I laugh to keep myself from crying) I work in printing. I've done this for almost 30 years to one degree or another, and it's a dying industry. Perhaps rightly so. On top of that, I'm a state employee in a state where the state legislature looks at state employees not as a valuable resource, but as leeches sucking the teat. It's rather disheartening to wake up every day to go to work for people who don't care if you live or die and actively make attempts to destroy your life and livelihood.  "So, go find another job!" I've been trying to do just that for five years. Go figure.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
