In recent times I have had to deal with people...well ever since my parents took me away from my pack. So now that I have accustomed myself to the urbanized I wonder: Why is the Man all in my face. The Man can be in many forms but the most common and where I will start is Law/Government.
In Arizona, land of little water and the nocturnal lifestyle...smells dusty, there was a recent series of events. Firstly, a small local paper, The New Times, printed the address of a sheriff they thought was corrupt. The cop retaliated by arresting the owners of the New Times. Then the Arizona Republic decided to rebuttal by saying that finding address information was easy and put up the District Attorney's home address on their website(taken down). The DA was spear-heading the arrests, when the Republic attacked him, he immediately cried out to the media that reporters have no right to be giving away officials privacy away(even though the information is easily obtainable online). And then after all his complaining, he puts up his blog the address's of the owners of the AZ Republic.
How can the Man be so stupid? Everyone's address is on the internet, the Republic was pointing this out. Also arresting journalists? Maziltov son!
PART 2 (Work)
I recently started a job...they offered to pay...me...for bitch work at minimum wage, its a real shame that I graduated college. Since I get to bag other peoples groceries, which could probably be done by anyone with the IQ of 12. Not that I am on some high horse, it is just that I have worked my way up the bitch jobs: Paramount Kings Island, Burger King, Long's Drugs etc. To have to go back to the last in line is retarded. I have no motivation to work somewhere where I have to clean the bathrooms every 2 hours. My pack would be so ashamed (see). So my job sucks, (everyone complains about it, SO WHAT). I know, I know, I need to solve my job situation:
#1. Move back into the Forest. Gonna be hard though, I really like showers.
#2. Get Stabbed, my Safeway has plenty of vagrants, then I could sue Safeway. The only problem is I would have to wait months before I can win the court case and I would have to take one for the team. (Side Note: I spent a lot of time thinking about all likely situations and stabbing is by far the most likely.)
#3. Quit. This would be annoying since I did so much just to start working, it would be copping out, then I would be no better than the Man.
#4. Arson. No downside, everyone loves a good fire (e.g. Burning Man)
The Man controls Safeway, not only does it tell Safeway what they cannot do, but Safeway starts to follow the Man's example. They create an atmosphere of paranoia and fear. Every 15 minutes I am supposed to swipe my card to prove that I have been doing my rounds. Also they hire secret shoppers, who come into the store at least once a week and grade us on our performance. And if we do badly, we get the ax. I don't bend, I will slaughter them like a wolf among sheep!
Notes: Safeway smells like a refrigerator, with the faint smell of produce. The temperature is cooler than most, but comfortable to me. Florescent lights make me go crazy. The water tastes like blood, is it mind-control fluids or just their way of making equal opportunity to vampires?
