We can fix up this grenade, good as new!
Blog Guy, I’m a recent college graduate who needs career advice. I picked up a colorful brochure entitled “The Exciting Field of Refurbishing Rocket-Propelled Grenades,” and I wondered if I should look into that.
Kids, I know the brochures make it seem really glamorous, but I just can’t recommend this career path.
Sure, the black rubber gloves look cool, but you have to ask yourself why this man’s boss has located his office behind 450 massive truck tires.
But Blog Guy, in the brochure the man gets to work sitting down, which is important to me!
I know, but his job title also contains the word “rebel,” which you generally want to avoid. So, what was your major in college?
I have a degree in Film Studies.
Ah. Well, then you may as well go for the RPG career. Everybody should be a rebel at your age, anyway.
