Prison vs. Work

From the interesting blogging website, Bits and Pieces, 6/17/2009

Spending months or years in a prison environment is a serious, if not tragic circumstance. Much of the mission of The-SLAMMER is aimed at improving the lot of everyone spending time behind prison walls through exploration of reform, rehabilitation and recidivism issues. But perhaps a little humor too would also be helpful. Following is a portion of a rather funny comparison of life in prison versus a significant part of life outside . . . work. We hope all readers will enjoy it.

@ PRISON You spend most of your time in a 10X10 cell
@ WORK You spend most of your time in 6X6 cubicle

@ PRISON You get three fully paid for meals a day
@ WORK You get a break for one meal, and you have to pay for it

@ PRISON For good behavior, you get time off
@ WORK For good behavior, you get more work

@ PRISON The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you
@ WORK You must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself

@ PRISON You can watch TV and play games
@ WORK You could get fired for watching TV and playing games

@ PRISON You get your own toilet
@ WORK You have to share the toilet with people who pee on the seat

@ PRISON They allow your family and friends to visit
@ WORK You aren’t even supposed to speak to your family

@ PRISON All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required on your part
@ WORK You must pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

@ PRISON You spend most of your time inside bars wanting to get out
@ WORK You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars
