I hope things are going better for you than this today!

The Engineer's Song

(Sung to the tune of "The Beverly Hillbillies")

Come and listen to the story 'bout a man named Jed,
  A poor college kid, barely kept his family fed,
  Then one day he was talking to a recruiter,
  He said, "they'll pay ya big bucks if ya work on a computer",

  Well the first thing ya know, ol' Jed's an Engineer,
  The kinfolk said, "Jed, move away from here."
  They said, "Arizona is the place ya oughta be,"
  So he bought some doughnuts and he moved to Ahwautukee
  Motorola that is . . dry heat . . no amusement parks.

  On his first day at work they stuck him in a cube,
  Fed him more doughnuts and sat him at a tube.
  They said, "Your project's late but we know just what to do,
  Instead of 40 hours, we'll work you fifty-two!"
  OT that is . . unpaid . . . Mandatory

  The weeks rolled by and things were looking bad,
  Some schedules slipped and some managers were mad,
  They called another meeting and decided on a fix,
  The answer was simple, "we'll work him sixty-six."
  Tired that is . . stressed out . . . no social life

  Months turned into years and his hair was turning gray,
  Jed worked hard while his life slipped away,
  Waiting to retire when he turned sixty-four,
  Instead he got a call and they escorted him out the door
  Laid-off that is . . . debriefed . . . unemployed . . .

Have a great weekend. Invent something. Don't blow yourself up in the process.
