Do you love dogs, and to a lesser degree, cats? And to a lesser degree, people? And to a lesser degree, obnoxious tourists?

Do you enjoy being observed by people from wealthier areas of this country as some kind of circus freak without dental benefits?

Are you numb to being constantly belittled, screamed at, and covered in spittle from power-mad, thin-skinned, red-faced blowhards?

COMPENSATION COMMENSURATE WITH EXPERIENCE: Compensation means "pay." Commensurate means "dependent" for you Jugheads out there.
