either my spine just cracked or my brain did

I am finding myself unable to cope with a job that I can do, and can do easily, and have done for quite a long time.
The feeling, of course, does not stem from being treated badly and worked like a slave but from my own want of character.
I do, you see, understand.

If ye lament a psychosomatic lack of character, be glad at least that you are a character. It's an amazingly good replica!

Or possibly even simulacrum.

Leave. Anything is better than that place. I can't believe I committed nearly 5 years of my life to that hole.

I was being very, very, very sarcastic, Martin. The culture of the place, as workplaces go, is very bad and very hard on the workers. Our bosses do not believe that there is such a thing a working people too hard. Ever.

I try, Rinns, but I come how utterly exhausted because the workload increases and increases and increases and, well, fools that we are, we try to be good employees and get the work done. I wish I worked in a place that was less immediate.

I really shouldn't comment on blogs moments after waking up, my reading skills are barely rudimentary at that point in the morning, and my sarcasm detector works not.

I can't imagine the pay is ever worth the stress.

The ultimate of all evils - Rent. And, of course, debt. All tied up and needing money.

Do you work in a sweatshop? Actually, it sounds much worse than that. It reminds me of one of those slave ships from the 18th century, with the big shirtless guards in black hoods lashing the employees with a leather whip and barking at them to row faster.

Is that pretty accurate?

It would be far more honest if they did beat us. Also, you know, more fun.
