Thread Name: BS: GET A JOB...
Subject: RE: BS: GET A JOB...
Seems like a perfect place to post a song I just wrote:

The Over 50, Job Huntin' Blues

Well I'm now way over 50
And I'll work for any wage.
I'm now way over 50
And I'll work for any wage.
All the good jobs have been taken
By people who are half my age.

They said, "Come back on Tuesday,
We just might have something then."
"Come back here on Tuesday,
We just might have something then."
But when Tuesday rolled around, I tell ya,
They said same damned thing again.

I showed them my diploma;
Showed them letters, one, two, three.
Showed them my diploma,
Showed them letters, one, two, three.
But all they had to say was,
"Hm-m, these make no mention of our specialty."

"You see, we take pride in our product.
Only the best can make it well.
We take pride in our product.
Only the best can make it well.
So if you've never flipped a burgerů"
I told him, "You go straight to hell!"

So I guess I'll keep on lookin'
I've gotta pay the rent some kinda way.
I guess I'll keep on lookin'
I've gotta pay the rent some kinda way.
But if I don't find something soon,
My Atkins diet'll be blown away.
