Portrait of a Dead End

This happy graph depicts the pay rate trajectory over the course of my brief career detour as an accounting clerk. Note the trend. My projections suggest that if I continue along this path, I'll eventually be working as an unpaid intern.

Let's go into the silver lining analysis...

While I was saddled with twice the responsibility on the second gig — overseeing the payroll of all those fucking god-awful pathetic background actors — I *should* be dealing with the least amount of responsibility on this latest gig. (Once the secondary payroll clerk comes in.)

More importantly, I'm not being afforded the level of comfort that would allow me to forget about my real career goals. I'm earning the bare minimum to keep lights on.

Watch me bite this goddamn fucking bullet.
