I've been thinking about the Rat Race. Can we really say we won the rat race? The rats don't actually know they're competing do they? They're just hungry and they're trying to get the piece of cheese at the end of the track (or maze). Or maybe they're just running in place on an exercise wheel 'cuz if they try to run anywhere else they crash into the walls of their cages. It's not like we're actually trying to beat the other people we're racing with, we just want to get off the track (out of the cage) sooner. The other people just fail to find the exit from the track.Of course, I haven't actually left the track yet, but I feel like I'm on my victory lap. Picking up roses, waving flags, shaking hands, eating cheese, having fun and planning my resignation letter. What do you all think? Is "I resign" too wordy?4goneFool
How about "Rat Race Graduate"?
What do you all think? Is "I resign" too wordy?I always thought it was nice how, when a middle manager is downsized, the company will sometimes let him continue to come to the office for a few months and make phone calls trying to get a new job. So in fairness I think you should put something in there about letting them use your phone to check around for a replacement.
LOLJust request vacation from xx/xx/xx till forever.nmckaynah, too wordy
I prefer "divorced from the rat race due to irreconcilable differences".Harley
After I have sucessfully "left the track", I will think of myself as a Survivor.-rkm
I like the "I won the rat race" and "vacation from XX/XX/XX till forever"I'm thinking about making shirts a little bit down the road. More to come on this in a couple of months, but try to think up some good images to go with this :))) 4aapl
