Just one more employee?
I just keep telling myself... it's paying the bills, it's paying the bills, it's paying the bills, it's paying the...
I mean sure, we're TECHNICALLY given them... but it's SO hideously understaffed and overworked *for a miserable 10.50 an hour to boot), that there's simply not enough time to go for a break. Hell, one day I didn't have time to go to the fucking WASHROOM when I needed to for about 4 hours.
Not only that, but I asked... and they're not hiring ANY more people! I mean... what the hell, man?!? Oh, and don't think I get to go home at the end of the day either. Absolutely everyone there basically has to work overtime to get the work finished.
Oh, and for the curious... while I'm working here, I won't be divulging the name of the company. Let's just say that I help stuff get across the border. SHould I work elsewhere sometime in the future, remind me, and I'll be sure to let everyone know.
Why do I stay, you ask? Because it's not a temp job, and I honestly can't afford to quit anything for quite a while... so I have to sit there and take it while smiling the entire time. Aaaaand there's pretty much not a damned thing I can do about it. Isn't life fun?!?
Metroid, Samus, Kraid, and the rest of 'em are all property of Nintendo, who to my knowledge wouldn't do anything such as sue me or shut poor Planet Zebeth down, because they're so damn nice, and Metroid kicks ass : }
This particular comic strip was made solely by me, by that happy little program known as KolourPaint. Yes, the one that everyone runs in fear from. That's why the comic looks the way it does.
