The Wise Guy

So, I'm talking to my son - -
not 'at', mind you, with - -
saying, 'Boy, if you hate your job
go ahead and quit.'

Just be sure to do them right
(this being his first job) ...
give them plenty of notice,
don't leave with a 'Bye, Bob! '

First gather applications
for a new position.
Don't plan to play Game Cube for
a month-long 'transition.'

He replied, 'Yeah, Mom, uh huh - -
mumble mumble - - *burp*.'
Said I: 'You're not making SENSE! '
He: 'Okay, but - - *slurp* - -
! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I'M MAKING DOLLARS! ! ! '
