The Transparent Aluminum Floor and the Broken Glass

When it comes to getting a job here in Flawer-Duh, unless you have a driver's license or are able-bodied, the only thing you can ever hope for is sucking dick for packing peanuts and a slice of moldy, stale bread if you're lucky, all while looking up at the transparent aluminum floor you'll never break with no hope of escape. That is Flawer-Duh for the poorly connected, non-white, and disabled.

I can't talk to anyone about it because they don't wanna hear it. They always tell me I have to stop looking at my glass as half-empty. The problem is that the glass isn't half empty or half full. It's broken. Nothing I do, say or attempt will change that in my lifetime because down here in Flawer-Duh, the crazy and stupid rule and they can't (and won't) be voted out.

I dare anyone to prove me wrong.

See ya around,

Aspie

@mimi

what is the meaning of "Flawer-Duh" ?

... sorry ... just asking.

"Florida", as pronounced by certain Southerners from that State, i.e. with their accent.

Aspie's using that to express his frustration at his situation there.

@mimi pronouced 'Flo-id-a.' So, we call it 'Flor-i-dumb' or 'Flor-i-duh' to show how corrupt and idiotic the state's politics are, plus the elected yahoos who push them. Aspie is correct: the political corruption in this state has lasted decades and is solidly entrenched. It's beyond pathetic! Rec'd!!

I think it's become time for you to seriously consider the only real solution to any problem tied to life in a Traitor State:

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

-- Christian Scriptures, Revelation 18:4

In other words, you want a decent crack at life, live where it snows, not where the palm tree grows. (Or in Southern California or Hawai'i, which would explain why those places are so crowded.)

North of the 37th Parallel. It's just a good idea. Unless you're in Korea. Wink

We winter down here around Tampa.

I think that this is like the cheap man's California. If I were to make it down here, I'd set up something where I was an elite level talent and ask for top dollar compensation.

They like that down here, and it's very transient. Given some talent, it could work to make a living.

Working for wage or scale, not so much.

@k9disc And part of the reason employers get away with all the shit they do is because Flawer-Duh is a so-called Right-to-Work state. Here, the ADA doesn't mean a damn thing.

Aspie: did you get Cant Stop the Macedonian Signal's note that she's putting together the First Florid-whatever Meetup for c99ers and other similar folks? I hope we can make it happen. It's important especially with November looming. It will be fun socially, too. Smile
