You Want Fries with That?

Author: Prioleau Alexander

Review by: Mandy Apgar

Tired of his numbing job (albeit a well paying one), "Lowe" quits it and decides to embark on a quest - taking on the jobs that on which so much rides, pays little, and is derided much. Pizza delivery boy, scooper at an ice cream parlor plagued by idiotic college girls wanting free samples, construction laborer (God, this one was good as a former inspector of 10 years - he was only in a few days and picked out the bull perfectly), emergency room tech (same), how he kept applying but never heard from Wal Mart or an unnamed lumber big box retailer, fast food, even a cowboy. Immediately he realizes several key things - without the underpaid schlubs like myself working these jobs there would be serious trouble, yet things are so messed up. Paying for uniforms, no protection, little training, etc. is what is expected in many industries. Which was why, faced with mounting bills, he gave up his grand experiment and went back into a "tie job" working marketing.
