Great Job Security

Great Job Security

I used to be an inside salesman. My job was to sell via phone and online, and to support several outside salespeople as well.

One day, one of the outside guys was in the office, and he and I were discussing clients. “I dunno how you do it,” he said. “Being chained to a desk all day? I couldn’t do it.”

We finished our chat, got a nice lunch on the company, and went our separate ways. But that “chained to a desk” comment stuck with me, and later that afternoon, in a seemingly endless meeting, I drew up the above cartoon.
