Uh. I was the person who runs the It's A Small World ride at Disneyland for several years and totally enjoyed myself. Clearly the author has something against perky, repetitious singing dolls, but nonetheless the rest of the book is a hoot.
An edgy, irreverent, 'right on' view on what drives us all crazy from 9-5. Made me feel a whole lot better about being a nuclear waste processor. Get this book and you'll never have another instance of awkward silence at your next dinner party. A must have!!
Amusing take on how things could be much worse then simply being stuck in a cubicle.
This is a great book! I never realized that anything was worse than being a veteranarian's janitorial assistant! This is a nice, cheap, coffee table book for home or the office!
You won't complain about your job ever again after reading this book. A very funny read and perfect for those co-workers who think they've got the worst job in the world.
