We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Your job is a stepping stone to a better or higher paying job. Do your job like a professional no matter what your job is even if it is menial. Priority number one is to make your boss look good. Be on time or early to work every day. Act like you are happy with your job, your co-workers and your company. Leave your personal life and political beliefs at home. Be indispensable, be likeable and be dependable. Don't be an active player in office politics but be aware of it. Make opportunities for yourself, every problem is an opportunity.
