On top of the House: Part II

If you ever get a chance to go and get some work done on the roof, take my advice and pass!

The part where you are on the roof is good because you’ve got that nice view and everything. But it’s the aftermath that is back breaking!

I’ve spent pretty much the whole day cleaning up the mess that was left over from the old shingles. From 12pm until 10pm, I was loading up the van and then unloading it. And we’re not even done yet! There’s still another load left to do. But that load might have to wait until next week because if we take that to the trash station in Dundas on the weekday, it’s gotta cost us for a certain amount for a certain weight, but if we dump it at my dad’s workplace, it’s free.

All of this hard work got me thinking. Why is it that the hard working people are that, a hard worker? It seems like the hard workers have to keep on working hard in order to have it easy. Meanwhile, the ones who have it easy are the one who aren’t work that hard at all.

Why is it that my dad has to get up at 5am to get to work by 6 and work his ass off at his work place to make ends meet while other people are allowed to get up 3 hours later, have time to get coffee and then get to work by 9? That doesn’t make any sense at all!

Why is it that my dad drives around in a ’88 GMC van, that is starting to break down while those who work, not even half as hard, are driving around in a brand new Mercedes?

Wouldn’t it make more sense for the hard working people to be paid more than those who aren’t working that hard? A mechanic, who gets up early to go to a job where he may get injured should get paid more than a man who sleeps in and goes to a job where he juss sits there. What is it with the other job that requires such a high pay? Is it the possibility of getting Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? Or is the due to the fact that the chair not high so that your sitting at the right angle?

No matter which way you look at it, you can’t possibly tell me that some politican should be making more money than some hard working police officer. One job has a lot more danger and is a lot more stressful than the other and yet the pay is less?

It’s things like this that makes me wonder how this world is being run. The government is supposed to be run by the people, not the other way around! If I was a politician, I’d keep my promise and if I don’t, I’ll resign, it’s as simple as that. I’ll even have that in writing so that I can’t back out. What good am I if I’m not doing what I was voted in to do? That’s juss wrong. I bet they’re in politics just to make easy money. The government takes enough of our hard earning money, we don’t need to give them any more! I’d like to see my tax money put to good use and not to pay off some politican who’s not even doing his job! Or better yet, I’d like to see my tax money back in where it belongs, in my pocket! But eh, that’s me, if they were in my shoes, they probably wouldn’t last a day without your chocolate mocca latte.

  1. Karl Marx would tend to agree with you. I am however, not very Marx in my thinking. I’ll explain how I see it. Better off is all relative. By your dad working his ass off he is able to give his kids a better opportunity to reach the goals they wish to achieve. This is why it is the duty of every kid born to a hard working parent to not fuck off and do well in life, make some cash, and help their parents retire.
