Spilling coffee on my brown pants, anyway( they're brown)

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]That was my day and now is my day as I read "belzebubs comics" inbetween yesterday's notes and drink coffee in the dark. I spilled some- heard the drops hit my pants ( which blocked it from the couch, t g) but it doesn't matter as my pants are faded brown with some washed-look/won't come out, ever caulk-spots.

Yes, I am a member of the underclass- why, a guy, a window/door installer w/ a heavy El Salvador 'lilt' said to me yesterday "You work like me- like normal people-" It was both a question and a statement of surprise in the middle of it. Yes, Caucasians are actually capable of using their hands for something other than writing checks or "poon-yeh-ter-ro", cabron. We used to do all these jobs before there was even such a thing as El Salvador or Ronald, 'dickfuck'-Reagan and the death squads. Welcome to America. [/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I would never say anything like that to him, though. Those cultures are way too different- and we're way too offensive/open with our opinions. [/FONT][/FONT]

[/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]And it's all relative, you know, your position or whatever. I mean compared to a Trump or some other really rich guy you are a peon, too; whatever your profession. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I mean, have you ever done the math on how much some people- lots of people that are not you, make? [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Like... I have one friend that back before he hung himself, made 3 mil a-year, salary ( yes, but that's beside the point- another story). [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Try dividing that by twelve ( months), then by thirty( days), then by four( how much a-week) and you realize that 3 mil is ridiculous when compared your typical 6 six figures. And how about the math for 30 mil? Or how about a hundred mil? You can't even comprehend... [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]So there's peons, and then there's peons; gfy. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]That's my day...

Hey, Kev, I know what you mean. I just finished a rant in Lounge along similar lines. Few know what work is. My job is to remind my family. Why I wrote that poem, in workshop, for them to know about my father. And, he could fix anything....because he had to.
 
Listened to music. I have a gut feeling you have a headache. Smiles.
