Excerpt from “Waxing Pathetic”

Now that I think of it, I really have been fired from every job I ever had.  Why? Because I refuse to act like a moron and work amongst real morons. Like I would be the one who would stand there and say, “Why are you doing it that way?” I wanted to totally revamp any school I worked in, starting with the lighting. Fluorescent lighting is so uncomplementary to skin tone, and it’s unhealthy overall. And the walls are boooring, that ugly drab cream color is totally uninspiring. And don’t even get me started on the crap in the cafeteria. That shit should not be served to any human being, not even inmates. What? Are kids criminals or something? And rows of desks? No. This is not the way things are done in Palo Alto.
