I’m just working for the man.

For the past two months I’ve been working for the U.S. Census going door to door collecting information from residents here in Jefferson County, Colorado. It’s my first “real” job outside of making pottery since I graduated from college in 1978 and the experience has had its share of highs and lows.  I generally like the work, but that small percentage of people who want to use you as a human punching bag can really make the job suck.  I’ve got this pipe dream of writing a “2010 Census Worker Confessional” comic book to share all the stories about the people I’ve encountered. It’s a long shot that this book will come to fruition but it’s fun to think about.  I think the best thing about working for the U.S. Census is the fact that it’s made me really appreciate that I make pottery for a living.

Today’s offering in my week long mug-aganza goes out to all those people who have crappy jobs in big byzantine corporations.  The federal government is one such organization and I can relate.  “We’re just hapless souls working for an evil corporation” can be found in the funny mugs section of the online store.
