The employer of the useless

Due to my utter lack of marketable skills, all my life people have tried to steer me toward government "jobs".

Just out of high school, I even looked into taking the post office test before being told I wouldn't be considered for hire because I wasn't a "veteran", so there wasn't any point. I'm now glad I didn't.

Once, a friend tried to get me a job with the state parks department. It turned out the only thing the guy interviewing me was interested in was getting me alone in a tent- which I picked up on during the interview, so the proposed camping trip "to see what the job entailed" never occurred.

And, people have told me I should be a teacher or other things that generally end up being government "jobs". I won't consider it.

But I do find it amusing that being pretty much useless results in being told to get a job with government. It's safe. It's lucrative. And apparently, you don't have to be of any use to anyone to collect the check financed by theft.

It irks me that the library is funded by taxation rather than voluntary means, but iot's one of the few government-ish jobs that actually serves a useful purpose despite being monopolized by the state.

I love libraries, but I hate that they are under the thumb of the State. Imagine how much more they could do if freed!
