Lion Tamer

Lion Tamer

Years ago when there was high unemployment and you’d go and sign up to go on the dole, and you’d just left art school or finished your masters in gender studies, they kind of knew that you weren’t likely to get any type of work. So the staff at the job centre would put you down as a Lion Tamer, so there was no chance of you getting sent off to a job interview. It was a good system as it wasted nobody’s time. Now it’s all changed and they send you off to anything, just to keep everyone busy.
Wasting everyone’s time.
I miss the old days.
