    Frank explains that he hates his job because basically he deals with something that comes out of a cows butt all day. A lot of people say that about their jobs. They just don't mean it literally.

    , Mariner! Awesome job!

    Great recap, Mariner! Bravo!

    What a strange little show, I might have to check it out...

    Great job, Mariner! Sounds like a very odd little show, but no matter . . . you turned in an excellent debut recap! I'm looking forward to reading along as the season progresses.

    The worst part was that the wagging tail made this little wooshing noise as it went back and forth. For a couple of hours it was okay. After 9 hours a day, it was driving me crazy.

    Great recap Mariner! I agree, a whole line of jokes were ruined by Rev Al keeping his hair in check

    Ben is first and basically just beats the crap out of five dummies. It looks like a performance one of my twelve year old cousins would turn in.

    Take This Job and Shovel It

    Next time on I Hate My Job, Al tells the four remaining contestants the next step is to quit their jobs. Frank who has four children and good employee benefits demonstrates that he has yet to read the latest relationship book, She Really Will be that Pissed at You by quitting without talking to his wife first. Josh who is "so over his job" as a preschool teacher tells us that hes not sure he can quit. He tells us what are they going to do if Im not here? Thrive?
    Great job Mariner.

    I had to quote the entire final paragraph as it had me rolling

    I'm just getting caught up, and love it. Your dog food job sounds dreadful, and I loved the SHAZAM! reference too.
