Iâve spent the last three years sleeping until 3 p.m. and getting drunk at dive bars on your tax dollars. I feel much better now.
Whatâs my secret? Getting CANNED!
From blue collar to white collar, minimum wage to six figures, Franklin Schneider has held every type of jobâbriefly. Heâs detasseled corn in Iowa, served time at a doomed Internet start-up, and for one shining moment became the âMost Successful Telemarketer in America.â But his search for a fairly compensated, fulfilling position free of pointless drudgery taught him one thing: Such a job does not exist. And if it did, his boss would probably be an a**hole.
If youâve ever wanted to go out to lunch and never come backâ¦
If youâve ever wanted to respond honestly when a boss asks, âDo you think Iâm stupid?ââ¦
If youâve ever considered restarting a smoking habit just for an excuse to leave the building every thirty minutesâ¦
This is the book for you.
