Points of View

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on July 28, 2008

A friend sent me something with this at the bottom; food for thought.
Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, this comparison chart should make things a little bit clearer:
@ PRISONYou spend most of your time in a 10X10 cell 

@ WORKYou spend most of your time in a 6X6 cubicle 

@ PRISONYou get three fully paid for meals a day 

@ WORKYou get a break for one meal, andyou have to pay for it 

@ PRISONFor good behavior, you get time off 

@ WORKFor good behavior, you get more work 

@ PRISONThe guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you 

@ WORKYou must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself 

@ PRISONYou can watch TV and play games 

@ WORKYou could get fired for watching
TV and playing games 

@ PRISONYou get your own toilet 

@ WORKYou have to share the toilet with
people who pee on the seat 

@ PRISONThey allow your family and friends to visit 

@ WORKYou aren’t even supposed
to speak to your family 

@ PRISONAll expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required on your part 

@ WORKYou must pay all your expenses to go
to work, and they deduct taxes from
your salary to pay for prisoners 

@ PRISONYou spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out 

@ WORKYou spend most of your time wanting
to get out and go inside bars 

@ PRISONYou must deal with sadistic wardens 

@ WORKThey are called ‘managers’

    LOL! It would be even funnier if it weren’t so TRUE! 😀

  3. So glad that you laughed R, especially on a Monday! We could match up just about anything with a few variables and make it look better or worse. The one that gives me the biggest chuckle is the getting into or out of bars!!!!
