What’s really great about my life is I get up every single morning in a 5 bedroom home that is paid for in full. After a shower, in my master bath
overlooking the pond, I make my way down to the granite topped, and cherry wood cabinet kitchen, where Maria is making breakfast. My 3rd wife doesn't
actually like to cook, so giving a job to someone that needs it is a wonderful feeling. Whatever is left over from our meals Maria is always welcome
to take them home too.
After breakfast, I gather my things for work, but decide I’ll go in late because that’s what everyone else does. As I get in my brand new BMW I
realize that it’s already last year’s model, so I’ll have to remedy this in the next month or so. No worries though because I’ll be getting a
few bonuses from my job, and for keeping my mouth shut.
Having a job that allows me lots of free time, credit cards for all my meals, expenses and full medical coverage has been a dream come true. What’s
amazing about my job is that even if I make lots of mistakes I still get my paycheck, 401k and will get a full pension and medical till I die.
The foundations I lay are mostly weak, but it doesn't matter because that is what my bosses tell me to do, so I do it without question, even though I
know deep down that what I’m building will crumble and is unstable; I smile like everything is ok, because everyone else I work with does.
I questioned our workmanship a few times early on, but I was told that if I brought it up again they would make my life difficult, so it’s best to
keep my mouth shut now. Poor workmanship doesn't matter because we can blame it on poor job materials, or other contractors and someone else will fix
it sooner or later, so no worries.
Another great perk is we don’t have to read the blueprints anymore; we just have to show up for work and pretend that we know what’s on the
blueprints. The architects tell us that we shouldn't worry about what’s in the blueprints, and to tell the homeowners not to worry either, because
everything will turn out for the best.
I’m so glad that homeowners are too busy with their chaotic lives to actually questions us, or see what’s going on, because if they did then maybe
we’d have to start reading and understanding those complicated blueprints. Did I mention that I really don’t know anything about building, and
that I was a baker before I got this job?
I have heard rumors that the houses we build are crumbling all over and hurting people, but really it’s not our fault because the contractors that
came after us should have re-enforced the foundations, with all that extra money they are getting paid. I really can’t believe those idiots didn't
see the problems.
I just heard from my boss that materials are going up, and the homeowners are complaining about paying more money for our work, this is making me a
bit angry because I have my bills to pay. How dare these people question our work, we know our jobs better than them, so if they think they can build
a better building, then step up to the plate.
The boss and the architect have told everyone, in our company, not to worry, because he has come up with a wonderful speech to inform homeowners, that
in order to have a solid foundation, that we’ll need more money to get the job done. And with all of the chaos from falling buildings, and people
dying it will be an easy sell, because when people are in fear for their lives, they’ll pretty much do anything.
Thank goodness I don’t have to live in those shacks and deal with all of their problems.
I think my next color should be white, with tan leather interiors what do you think?
