been one of those days ...

I was wrasslin' with more job applications today and getting into a very thick funk, not really getting much done for the amount of angst being generated. Then tonight I was off to a workshop and networking event featuring a Career Management person who had us doing some exercises, which were supposed to end up suggesting career opportunities to us. Of course, the only thing it suggested to me was:
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

The offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

I hate the army an' I hate the R.A.F.
I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat
I hate the civil service rules
And I won't open letter bombs for you

Bus driver....ambulance man....ticket inspector

They're gonna have to introduce conscription
They're gonna have to take away my prescription
If they wanna get me making toys
If they wanna get me, well, I got no choice

Careers
Careers
Careers

Ain't never gonna knock

(sigh) ... The Wife mentioned that she thought that we'd have all sorts of "free time" once somebody hired us, since we've been running nearly 24/7 (minus dealing with The Girls and some sleeping) on this damn job search for so long! Sheesh ... some days I wish I had a "prescription".
