Help needed

Today, I've been asking for help to close up store for the last 7 months, at the height of a global pandemic. My boss's excuse for no help? Joe Biden and the government is keeping everyone who would earn 10 dollars an hour from working, because they are all lazy. Joe wasn't president 7 months ago. FML

I recently started rereading George Orwell’s 1984 again for the first time in maybe 8 years. I remember reading it for the first time in middle school around 1998 and thinking that the whole “double think” shit was crazy and we would never see a world with people like that.

Rereading it now, it’s fucking scary how George Orwell writes about the brainwashed masses jizzing over “Big Brother” and doing whatever mental gymnastics they needed to to justify their crazy beliefs (which were basically whatever the “telescreens”/government told them to believe, even if it was categorically the opposite of what they had been told to believe yesterday, or even within the past 5 seconds) — and how that’s literally what our world looks like today.

I see people do this shit every day today and it boggles my mind. I’m sorry your boss is a dumbass fucking idiot, OP. And I’m sorry we live in a world where that kind of psychotic-ass thinking actually seems to be the new normal.

Translation - Cheapskate boss won’t pay a dime over minimum wage. And why should he hire someone to help out if you do all the work for no additional pay.

Start looking for a better job.
