Gimme a Life Sucks

I was down this other day, doing the same thing over and over again, explaining the obvious to 17 different and definitely blessed souls, each of them bathing in the bliss, that is ignorance. No doubt we humiliate them by branding them managers. Only, and it is obvious, they dont get the pun.

What was funny though, was when one of them, during the lunch break came to me and started the smooth talk saying he understands how difficult it is to explain Mie scattering and 3rd order differential equations to people who think that very very old history is called chemistry. Ok that wasnt the funny part- so if you laughed at it, you may have lost it.

The funny part was, when he, in the same breath said this: “Persevere and one day, you will get to where we are”. I dont get it- is it fashionable to lose out on your zonking brains when you get to be a manager or is there a minimum dumb limit to be one? I am frustrated to say the least!!

I now know what Marvin must’ve felt like when he so famously said: Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they ask me to take you to the bridge. Call that job satisfaction, ’cause I don’t.

Here’s something that Adams has to say:

Marvin: I think you ought to know I’m feeling very depressed.
Trillian: Well, we have something that may take your mind off it.
Marvin: It won’t work, I have an exceptionally large mind.
Trillian: Yeah, we know.

Flicked from: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0371724/quotes .

That is precisely my point, the response from Trillian. Instead of all the load of crap that normally follows, why dotn people just go on and say, “yeah, we know”. And definitely not stop at that but proceed on to “Life Sucks”. So guys, gimme a Life sucks and make me feel better.

    Marvin guides us here too, case in point: Arthur and Fenchurch bump into Marvin who is in a dilapidated state:
    ————————-
    It groaned at them as they approached it, collapsing in the hot dry dust.

    “So much time,” it groaned, “oh so much time. And pain as well, so much of that, and so much time to suffer it in too. One or theother on its own I could probably manage. It’s the two together that really get me down. Oh hello, you again.”

    “Marvin?” said Arthur sharply, crouching down beside it. “Is that you?”

    “You were always one,” groaned the aged husk of robot, “for the the super-intelligent question, weren’t you?”
    ————————-

    As to these exclamations that life keeps throwing at us, didn’t Arthur say, “Did I do anything wrong today, or has the world always been like this and I’ve been too wrapped up in myself to notice?”
