Everyone has had “that job” at one time or another, maybe even right now. You hate your job, you hate your boss, you hate your co-workers. You can’t imagine having to do this work for the rest of your life. You’re sure that in ages past, this type of work was reserved for torturing enemy combatants. For me, that job was retail. I worked at Sears and my job was to make sure the clothes looked neat and appealing to buy. I know, going to Sears to buy clothes is like going to Best Buy to buy tacos. It was miserable nearly everyday I was there. The job was never done. There was always a table of a hundred jeans I could refold. To me, the job had no significance, no purpose, and the pay certainly wasn’t a reward. It almost makes you think that work in and of itself is a divine punishment.
Buzzwords are fun to explore even though I don’t pretend to understand them all; hipster, motherism, selfie, textonym, frostjack, exoplanet, the cloud. Some of these you may know (kudos to you), but more than likely many of you will have to look up most of them… I did! Our society is inventing new words like this all the time in order to keep up with our changing vocabulary.
