I will be appearing with many twisted and wonderful literary lunatics at Working for the Weakened, which I hope none of my my current or past employers attend. I will be appearing all four nights — that’s two weekends in a row.
Four nights of employment horror stories — I’ve got four thousand nights’ worth of ’em, and a large number of their attendant early mornings. Did I ever tell you, for instance, about the 500 pages of 20-digit serial numbers from oceangoing rail containers? The drug-addled HIV education meeting in Concord? Pull up an ergonomic chair, motherfucker, but don’t even try to get comfortable.
