Just taking a brief break from not working here… maybe I should go pressure-wash the devil now… this whole furniture process is frustrating. Not as frustrating as the idea of working for some company is, but frustrating nonetheless. For instance, right now what my father wants me to be doing is watching him work on table legs. Not me working or having any part in it, and since he’s unable to communicate in any meaningful way I won’t be able to do what he’s “showing” me on my own later, either. I’ll have a general idea of it, maybe pick up two of seven vital concepts, but when it comes time for me to do it on my own, I’ll have to start from scratch and figure it all out as though he had never shown me anything. Hooray!
So, consequently, I don’t feel my time is being used effectively. And even if I were to spend all day just following my father around, watching him work, I certainly wouldn’t consider it “hours worked” since I wouldn’t have gotten anything done myself. I have … a few minutes work I could maybe do on my lamp , then it’s just … pressure-washing the devil. Maybe trying to find some aliens to pressure-wash. Because this whole “furniture” thing isn’t really working out so good. Time to move to selling the devil and aliens. Who doesn’t want to fill their homes with the devil and with aliens?
