Enjoyed the insight of this collection of short and digestible essays, with regards to the author's employment history. The down-to-earth tone and there were many things that "rang true", such as:
1) "I've looked into becoming a radiology tech, an interpreter for the deaf, a massage therapist, a yoga instructor, a court reporter, a medical transcriptionist, and a lab technician. Basically anything that requires me to go to a trade school for 18-24 months." (pg-11)
2) Pro vs. Con of "being older than [one's] 22-year-old boss," (pg-35)
3) What people really get up to at records stores (lol!)
As I approach my mid-twenties, I can totally appreciate the ups and downs of being in and out of crappy jobs (throughout my teens, it was never a dream, but a requirement, that I would eventually find a career that I actually enjoyed).
I don't wanna give away any spoilers (especially with endings), but I'll say here that I especially enjoyed the conclusion of this book. I'll say that it ties in wonderfully and positively to The Toilet Business's opening paragraph -- so kudos to SWB on that!
