wal-mart employee strikes back

I just got this from Kez. He found it on-line this morning (I don’t know where), along with the following text: “I work at Wal-Mart and it sucks ass, I do what I can to make up for it. Today I bought some reflective mail sign letters to put on my car, it was funny because I handed the cashier guy the letters one by one. Well, I guess you can tell what my car is going to say…”

    strange… such intelligence and the best job he can land is at walmart??? This guy’s a real free thinker with management potential written all over him, a real breath of fresh air.

    John, does my firend, the former Atlanta Brave Mike Bell, know that you’ve been using his computer all weekend? Should I be concerned for his safety?

    Oh goodness. That is wonderful.

    JG, is there a stigma associated with working at WalMart? I mean, isn’t it a good, all-american place to work?

    I’m a plaintiff’s attorney (medmal). After George Bush puts me and my profession permanently out of business (which ought to come right after this filibuster nonsense), perhaps I’ll be eligible for an opportunity to expand my horizons at WalMart.

    We did the math not too long ago, Mr. Getto, and I think we determined that, given their growth and the rate at which they churn employees, every man and woman in America will have worked for Wal-Mart by 2020… I’ll see you at orientation.

    I’m already lookin’ forward to it. Never was that good at math . . .

    Last “orientation” I went to was for law school over ten years ago. I still fondly recall being told by a young woman next to me in line that “Existentialism is dead.” We became immediate friends. After working for (as she put it) Darth Vader at the Death Star (making a fortune, mind you), she is currently a sole practitioner in Pueblo, CO running a law office out of a coffee shop. If the WalMart thing doesn’t work out, maybe I’ll join her in a few years.

    Coincidentally, she has a “Buck Fush” bumper sticker on her car.

    hmm so trial lawyers don’t like bush? The same ones who work for Darth Vader? Who do they like? the dems.. why is that?

    John: She actually wasn’t a trial lawyer. She worked at a very Republican (and well-connected) firm in Chicago. She did ERISA law.

    As to supporting the Dems, I don’t get why the Federalists and Repubs hate the Constitution so much. All attorneys (Dem, Repub or “other”) take an oath to uphold it (as do our elected reps). Seems to me if one doesn’t like it, one ought to work to change it. What I don’t like is trying to ignore or sidestep it by legislating around it, or packing the courts in an effort to get it re-written without meeting the rqmts for amending it. Which is what this filibuster thing was really about, in my view.

    Well said, Mr. Getto.
