Work = Prison

A co-worker sent this to me yesterday.

IN PRISON - you spend the majority of your time in an 8 x 10 cell.
AT WORK - you spend the majority of your time in a 6 x 8 cubicle.

IN PRISON - you get three meals a day.
AT WORK - you only get a break for one meal and you pay for it.

IN PRISON - you get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK - you get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON - the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK - you must carry around a security card and open all the doors yourself.

IN PRISON - you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK - you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON - you get your own toilet.
AT WORK - you have to share with some idiot who pees on the seat.

IN PRISON - they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK - you can't even speak to your family.

IN PRISON - the taxpayers pay all expenses with no work required.
AT WORK - you get to pay all the expenses to go to work, and then they deduct Taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON - you spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
AT WORK - you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.

IN PRISON - you must deal with sadistic wardens and guards.
AT WORK - they are called managers and brown-nosers.

A few of my own…

IN PRISON - No degree required
AT WORK - you spend several years and lots of money to get a degree before you can even get an entry-level position

IN PRISON - you get an exercise period scheduled into each day
AT WORK - you have to find time to exercise on your own time, at your own expense, in addition to the other things in your schedule

IN PRISON - you are issued a comfy jumpsuit, and it is washed for you
AT WORK - you have to purchase your own clothing, it’s usually expensive and uncomfortable (read: suit), and you have to wash/ dry clean it yourself

One from Victor…

IN PRISON – you are provided healthcare at the taxpayers’ expense
AT WORK – you have to pay for your own healthcare insurance or take the company’s crap program (if one is even offered)

Anybody got anything to add?
