Our Life in Toons

Check out Ed Brisson's Sob Story (via bookslut).

"Do you have anything by Moby Dick?" reminds me of the new cashier we had just before I left who was frantically looking for "Shakespeare" by Julius Ceasar.

See, this was after they instituted the psych test for new applicants. We got alot of gullable, noncynical dunderheads, but not too many folks who knew anything about books.

Note: all the managers took the "test" just for fun and half of them failed.

DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE TEST. I haven't taken it, although I keep saying I will. I really want to know what it is about the test that selects for people with absolutely no work ethic. I also don't think it does a great job (as it is supposed) of selecting for honesty. We've hired more than one sociopath since the test was instituted. As for measuring intelligence or knowledge of books -- it doesn't. Period.

Hmmm. I guess I did get started on the test.

Well, this is interesting. I did a blog search for starbucks barista espresso machine and found your site. When I get some time I'll come back and find out where starbucks barista espresso machine appears and how it relates - if it even does. Take care - nice work.
