exit strategy

"so did you hear j just say she's leaving?"

"what? i was sitting 2.5 feet away from her all night and i didn't catch that! where is she going?"

"oh she's leaving the business completely, going to work for some law firm downtown on trial graphics or something."

"wow. can you imagine? must be daytime hours and a consistent schedule!"

"yeah, and she probably doesn't have to work holidays."

"i'll bet the pay is better, too."

"when's her last day?"

"next saturday."

"isn't it sad that when somebody leaves it just makes the rest of us think about what we'd rather be doing and instead of doing anything about it, we sit here and obsess about the fact that they had the exit velocity to make it happen?"

"and she's not going to have to go to the dungeon, either!"

"dammit. tonight is my last night after like SEVEN weeks. i hope they don't make me go back for her rotation, too."

Capitalism is an economic system where CEOs get a million dollar bonus because they improved productivity by making you do the work of two people.

Workers of the world unite.

i gotta add that it aint an exit strategy its just exchanging one evil for a different evil!!!

my exist strategy involves a self sufficient scuba boat that i plan to live on as I travel the southseas giving lessons to the poor and unfortunate that are only able to escape for 2 weeks out of the year

Yes, why do we feel that way when others leave? As if they're off to greener pastures and we're stuck in the swamp.

I'm starting to wonder what it is you do. What is dungeon duty? Probably I knew at some point, and my mind is just refusing to cooperate.

It's scary to pick up and leave, even if you're miserable. Let's take a deep breath together and find dream jobs!

i wait for reports in a dungeon.

frankly, it's starting to wear on me. i sure could use a break. and a dream job. hopefully in an office with windows.
