There's so much to tell, where do I begin?

A Rebuttal

I recently caught my local news and saw what could be dubbed a “hit piece” on the local film commissioner, who I know personally. While I do not consider us to be close friends, I do know him to be a stand-up guy. So, when the local TV watchdog decided to raise eyebrows by suggesting … Continue reading

The Etiquette Of Rejection or Your Role In The World

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts . . .William Shakespeare The work place is a collection of people brought together to do different things to reach a common goal: to produce revenue … Continue reading

The Roller Coaster

Alesia began the following Monday morning with a compulsory training session for her five new employees. Safely out in the field and structuring my day as I found fit, I was not required to attend, but encouraged to stop in some time during the week to meet everyone. On Wednesday afternoon I dropped in to … Continue reading

The Disposable Employee

After a few weeks working for Alesia I knew I was disposable because every one else she hired also appeared to be disposable.  The only reason I didn’t know it immediately is because I have hope for the greater good and faith in human decency. That hope and faith did not last long. My very … Continue reading

The Coupon Slave

The easy part about making the transition from cemetery sales to advertising sales was not being paid for anything.  It did not matter at all where I spent my time. Technically I was still employed at the cemetery.  Because I refused to quit and my sales manager Sandra apparently had no power to fire me … Continue reading

Ask My Opinion On Profanity And That’s What You’ll Get

I was recently asked about my experience with profanity at work.  I thought it was a fun Q & A and decided to share my thoughts here.  I could go on and on about it, but I think I’ll save some of that for later posts. Should we, as employees, swear at work? Whether or … Continue reading

Thank You For Visiting

If you have stumbled across this and like what you read, thank you!  I am glad you enjoy it. I hope you had a chance to read my Unpublicized Blog as well as all of The Corporate American Slavery Business Review.  This blog started as a way to cope with my work situation at the … Continue reading

The American Way

Obviously, I am employable, but not by anybody who wants to pay for an employee. This is the general consensus among those who will actually hire me.  For a career salesman, like myself, thousands of jobs exist.  Having spent much of my career seeking out finer opportunities I know this to be true.  There is … Continue reading

Monday Morning Meetings

Once you are on the government dole it is necessary to seek out employment.  Something I was doing anyway, so not a real problem to keep track of where I applied for work and who had not called me.  It is all a click, cut and paste away. While seeking work I still sought out … Continue reading

My Catch-22

Even with draw balance of $2,877.90, the highest Sandra had ever seen, she would not fire me.  She sat across from me at her desk and told me that my draw would be cut off, then asked me what my plans were.  It was as if she expected me to quit.  I told her I … Continue reading

The Chains of Necessity

I can not pay my bills.  Nor do I qualify for bankruptcy.  I have two jobs and have made no money in the last two weeks.  I must be doing something wrong. Working straight commission?  Is that it?  Could be.  But what else do you do when these are the only jobs anyone will hire … Continue reading

The Slave Awakens

I am a slave. I do not want to be a slave, but I know that I am one. I do not want to offend those whose heritage may be rooted in slavery.  Slavery certainly leaves a bruise that even time will not heal completely.  So to those whose ancestors suffered in chains, I say to … Continue reading

Four. One hundred jobs and counting.

For those now keeping track, as you can see, I have been away from blogging for several months and did not keep to the daily schedule I had tried to force myself into.  I had more important things to do than write down my thoughts for public consumption.  Pity that others have so much free … Continue reading

Three. A belated update.

Being a supreme procrastinator I am finding it difficult to maintain a daily schedule writing a blog.  Obviously people who can maintain such schedules are either being paid to do so or have nothing better to do.  So I am foregoing the “Days” in my title line and am going to just continue to number … Continue reading

Page Two. A far fetched idea.

So I missed a day, well, not really, I got to writing late, so here it is after midnight and I am ready to post my blog.  But I just did a lot of writing. I felt compelled to write in response to a New York Times article posted on Yahoo entitled “Financial Advice Gleaned … Continue reading

Page One. Imagine.

If a tree falls in the woods and there is nobody to hear it – will it make a sound?  Of course it will.  Science proves that sound waves carry and indeed never die.  Every sound ever made, every radio and television broadcast is still alive on some minute wavelength that may never be heard … Continue reading
