    Some jobs, having pride in it seems like the only thing that would keep a person going, I dunno.

    Aside from something like "supermodel blowjob tester," what job isn't that way?

    A job someone genuinely enjoys. Yeah, opinions, but I mean, nobody wants to stand stand there working a concession stand, but I imagine knowing you can do the job damn well makes it easier to keep from getting to you.

    Going into a shitty job with the mindset that "I'll just do this bit to keep me busy and then go home." For years would make me kill someone, is what I mean.

    My job is making video games, which is the job I've always wanted. But a deep desire to do interesting and high-quality work within the medium is what keeps me here. If I didn't have that, there would be no reason to do this, and it would just be "What the fuck, I have to crunch again? This is bullshit!"

    High-five for awesome jobs, duder.

    But has Defender actually done an awesome job? I don't know, he never seems to talk very positively about any games he has insider knowledge about!

    But you don't know which games those are, because I don't always say. And even if I do have insider knowledge, it isn't necessarily because I worked on them. I do know other people in this field.

    Also, awesome job hi5, The Geek.

    Ok, so the simpler version is faster to post. But I saw an opening to use this old comic again.

    And now it's gone. Hope you kept backups.

    Oh god, this comic

    Saw plenty of this at Gamestop, but my favorite is the guy who brought in a copy of FFVII and tried to sell it to us

    "Do you still take PS1 games?"

    "No sir, we do not."

    "But this is FFVII."

    "I can see that, sir."

    "It's worth a lot."

    "I'm sure it is, sir."

    "You could buy this off me and sell it on eBay for, like, $300."

    "Perhaps you should try selling it on eBay then, sir."

    Listing at $300 would have to compete with quite a few copies in the $30-$40 range over there. Maybe if it were some misprint edition 1st pressing in mint quality could you get up that high.

    Also reminds me that I haven't read Acts of Gord in a while.

    Wow, somebody didn't take economics 101. Seriously the guy's trying to sell you something for like $20 when he thinks it's worth $300? What the fuck? Or does he just think that you're that stupid?

    when I worked at a pizza place people would have pretty crazy requests

    one guy had a picture of his girlfriend and wanted me to do a portrait of her in pepperoni and peppers

    he didn't want to pay more than the $5 buffet buy-in he'd already paid though

    another time a girl wanted sun-dried tomatoes on her pizza

    I told her we had regular tomatoes, from the salad bar, and I'd put those on

    she was like "no, I want them dried"

    I said listen, the oven is 450 degrees. It'll burn paper. It should dry out the tomatoes. Or you could bring some in, and I'd be happy to put them on the pizza.

    To which she replied "no, I want them sun-dried. Can you put some in a cup, like outside, for a few hours, and we could come back, and then you could put those on? You'd have to check on them so flies don't get in them or anything"

    "No."

    Your job performance is a reflection of you. If you do lazy work, even if that work is filling popcorn bags, you're probably a lazy person.

    If I don't wanna do something I do it half assed. Or not at all.
    I put afford into the things I care about.

    It's quite nice to not be so tense and forced all the time like Defender for example.

    no that is being relaxed, which is sometimes related to being lazy, but you most certainly don't have to be lazy to be relaxed.

    Yeah, I mean, why put any afford into anything? I'm sure it won't ever come back to bite you in the ass, and since you don't care about other people, you know, don't bother.

    More importantly, you don't have to live your life as a constant race to be successful or happy. That's just how some people enjoy it. They rush from place to place, project to project, and love the hell out of it. That being said, you definitely don't need to go either extreme. There is the in between, where you do good work, but don't run the risk of high blood pressure.

    I personally find it a bit ridiculous to take pride in a menial job you hate, but you can take pride in the fact that you do it well.
