According to personnel records, I(we) am(are) an “Electronics Repairman”. Sounds like a highly paid TV shop job, eh? Yeah, we make pretty good money. And that’s as far as it goes with a lot of guys(and a few gals). Take the money and run.

Made a Mistake with My Career Choice

I like giving care to people but truthfully, people are more grateful to the guy who changed their oil in their car than to the nurse who suctioned their mothers throat so she could breath.
