Sold my soul.........

I had the vague feeling that I sold my soul to the devil this weekend. $$ is tight - no job in sight!
I had a half a box of cheeze-its for supper the other night. Then, with only a few dollars in the pocket we did the deed. We bought double cheeseburgers at McDonalds. Then....to top off the weekend's evil, I applied for a job at Wal Mart.
What does this all mean? Have I succumbed to the evils of corporate America? Have I entered there through the portal of poverty?
I swore off Micky D's years ago. I shun Wal Mart as much as possible and would rather support the smaller guy as much as I can. Wal Mart has embodied corporate evil in many ways and their application process made me feel like I was signing up for the mark of the beast. You know, 666?
After the initial application questions of name, address, blah, blah, blah, you have to answer approximately sixty four questions. You answer in the form of strongly agree to strongly disagree. Questions that appeared to weed out pot smokers, thieves, and then anybody who would not willingly be a monkey in a blue Wal Mart vest. Pretty amazing. Even if you are not really interested in a Blue Vest job, go and fill out the application at the lay-away section. You take it on a computer and you don't have to talk to anyone. It takes ten to fifteen minutes. Tell me what you think...

Damn!
I personally love Wal-Mart, I'll admit it, but wouldn't want to work there.
That said, my sister works in their photostudios, so what do I know? She's pretty happy though and my ex-bf climbed the corporate ladder and now works in the marketing team in corporate Canada.

A job is a job. Really at this point if Unholy Bloodsuckers of America offered you a job, wouldn't you take it? Doesn't have to be forever but at least it will pull you over the rough patch.

Hi Tim

If the reason you have for taking any job -ANY JOB is to take care of yourself and your family then the goodness of your soul is very much intact. Sometimes we gotta do things for the greater good, even though they might appear - on the surface to be "selling out". Your primary motivation seems pure to me.

i agree with capegirl. your soul is good and strong, and whatever shit that happens out there, you're very much grounded. that's the important thing.
