Here's a quote from Ryan The Temp of the The Office that I live by lately:

"If I had to, I could clean out my desk in 5 seconds and nobody would know I had ever been here. And I'd forget too."

Peter Gibbons: Our high school guidance counselor used to ask us what you'd do if you had a million dollars and you didn't have to work. And invariably what you'd say was supposed to be your career. So, if you wanted to fix old cars then you're supposed to be an auto mechanic.
Samir: So what did you say?
Peter Gibbons: I never had an answer. I guess that's why I'm working at Initech.

So to all those white collar slaves, if you had to do it differently what would you rather be doing; providing that you still had to financially support yourself. Firefighter? Lumberjack? Entrepreneur? Author?

I'd do author. I think I may have the skills, but I know I don't have the discipline.

So to all those white collar slaves, if you had to do it differently what would you rather be doing - all things being equal; same pay, same benefits & providing that you still had to financially support yourself. Firefighter? Lumberjack? Entrepreneur? Author?

I'd do author. I think I may have the skills, but I know I don't have the discipline.

Or maybe I'd just double post for a living.

i love my field of work. but...perhaps my job doesn't fit under the typical "white collar" label. i guess i'm more business casual. i do have an office to myself though, that's kinda hot.

I have a "cubical" all to myself... although the walls aren't very high and I sit in front of the printer/fax machine so every bozo here has to walk by my desk and "borrow" my pen...

Random co-worker (looks at my picture from the U2 concert): Wow, you must really like U2, who is your favorite?
Me: I dunno, I like them all...
Co-worker: I don't really like them all that much, Bone-O is kind of annoying... I like that Ipod song...
Me:

actually no! it is frigid in here. so i open up the windows (which is apparently illegal...i'm an outlaw) and since my desk is in front of the windows all the heat comes straight to me.

I forgot to make a cover page for my TPS Reports.

That was the end of my white collar days.

I do freelance now. Maybe you've read my stuff, under the biline of "Jane Doe."

I have a powerful office, befitting someone of my powerful status here at work.

I issue commands from here. The power I feel is immense...but, fleeting....and afterwards, I need comforting, really.

But, nobody ever issues me a hug.

Just imagine that every O in your memos are hugs and every X is a kiss.

I'd be Arthur. He was awesome, just a little drunk English fella. I could fake the accent, especially after a few drinks.

If you've seen some of these FYM threads, you can interpret pretty much anything to say anything you want.

We got moved out of FYM, though, because FYM is too busy handling Placenta threads.

Apparently this topic was a little too "mind-freeing" for some...
