LOU BLOOM

Excuse me sir? I’m looking for a job. In fact, I’ve made up my mind to find a career I could grow into. Who am I? I’m a hard worker, I set high goals. And I’ve been told that I’m persistent. Now, I’m not fooling myself sir. Having raised with the self-esteem movement so popular in schools, I don’t expect my needs to be considered, but I know that today’s work culture no longer caters to the job loyalty that could be promised to earlier generations. What I believe sir, is that good things come to those who work their asses off. And that people such as yourself who reach the top of the mountain, didn’t just fall there. My motto is if you wanna win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket.

Did I say that I worked in a garage?
