Overheard on the El, #28

A: "Take it for granted that you cannot put food on the table without serving the devil in some way.  If you are eating and staying alive, your conscience should not be clear -- the devil is paying you, and you are earning your wages.

With that said, when you look at how hard it is for me to get and keep a job - how dim my prospects for employment are - you can safely say that I have not been a particularly effective servant of the devil.

And that's some consolation."
