The Daily Grind

You know what I don't like?  The daily grind.  I don't like that I have to do it and I don't like that someone named it "the daily grind."  Eff that guy.  The last thing I need is some well-known name that makes the thing that I already hate to do sound just as bad -- if not worse -- than it already is.  Grind?  It's like I'm in the stone ages using an enormous stone wheel to grind down corn so that I can make cornbread.  Eff that.  That sounds horrible.  Why the hell would I choose to do that every day.  I wouldn't.  I'd much rather go into a climate controlled office and sit at a desk in an interior office with no windows or ventilation and stare at a computer all day with my only respite from that dungeon being a few overly long, overly boring meetings.  That sucks, but at least I'm not grinding shit, right?  So eff "the daily grind" and the daily grind.  Plus, the people that actually say "the daily grind" are assholes.  They say it like it's the funniest thing they've ever heard.  "The Daily Grind, right?  Ha, ha, ha!"  It's like we're all in on some kind of inside joke where we all actually love our day jobs but pretend to hate them because that's what you're supposed to do.  Eff you.  I actually hate my day job so stop giving it names and making it sound like it's hilarious.  It's not.  It's a drag.  Should we call it "the daily drag"?  Is that any better?  Because we drag our asses around all day.  Why don't we just call it what it is?  Giving up.

Happy Holidays!
