“Working in a music store (musical instruments),” one said. “Your days are spent listening to 50 people misplay 50 different riffs simultaneously as if they're all putting on their own concert.”


Another admitted, “I was hired as a baker and lasted two days after learning not only do we need to prepare and bake at 4:00 am, but the oven was HUGE.”


“Hey, finally, the case is before the judge, but the other party didn't show up. The next date that judge has given is three months away. And you don't work on one case until you solve it like How to Get Away with Murder.”
