Awesome government jobs usually come with non-awesome union rules and dues as well as union leeches and parasites. Sorry to hear.

Take heart in knowing that the Liberty has probably more infractions and accidents than you'll ever know. Karma exsists and it's probably coming back to them in a shitty home life.

The Jag is just a fucking asshole.

Oh it definitely wasn't a union job. But it definitely was an asshole driving both the Jag and the Jeep and a really amazing guy driving a Saab beside and behind them.

Well... the City seems to be hiring again, if you apply now, you might get a job before September...

Sometimes I'm glad I take the TTC. As for the government job, I didn't get mine and then out of the blue they called me five months later, so you never know!

The TTC must have a sick sense of humour. "The Better Way" ??? It's an overcrowded, cluster*&%#@ off stress.

Jobs are for losers anyway. Go back to school and be poor for 10 more years. It's awesome.
