"Modesto Area Express, can I help you?"

Well, today I sink into driver hell--I begin light duty, which means I get to sit around an office for 8 hours a day answering phone calls in which people ask me inane questions such as "does the bus stop here?" "when will the bus be coming by my house?", etc, etc. And no, I am not making these questions up--not even I could make up something that stupid! Patience is a virtue that I am going to be developing a LOT of over the next month...

There's a reason I choose not to work in an office-type job. The last time I checked murder was still a capital offense and I rather like my freedom. Maybe I'll just stick myself in the eye with a sharp pencil and then I can go home... Nah, they'd just tell me that I only need one eye to answer phones. Well, as the gladiators always used to say before they went into the arena, "Morituri te salutamus"!

Yeah, I guess not everybody is current on their Latin, eh? *grin* It means "We who about to die salute thee". It was an inside joke with my art teacher back in college...
