ANOTHER NAME FOR MY JOB IS...

My occupation in graphics mostly involves designing and preparing custom art to be screen printed or embroidered on clothing such as shirts, jackets and hats.  We do a lot of jobs for businesses, schools and sports teams.  Most of my work is pretty routine.  Although every day is different, and the people where I work are a bunch of crazies.

Lately we've been printing shirts for county employees.  The design is just the county seal with the name of the job underneath such as "transportation," "roads and bridges" etc.  These people are probably not paid much and someone is not paid to think much.  Case in point.  Would you like to go about your day wearing a shirt with the logo below printed on your left chest?

HAHAHAHA! I've had a good laugh. The day is saved, and it's only 7:26pm. Thanks, Leenie.

Oh no! That would be horrible! And still, I can't help laughing! Does that make me terrible or what!

Uh, no. Gross. Wait - yes. If I didn't actually have that job? That would be a killer shirt!

Wonderful!! Perhaps the designer should have a shirt saying 'waste of space' (hope you have that expression as well, or the joke, such as it was, will have fallen a bit flat!)

Yes, so tempting to make a joke. How about ...county logos, great to have the business but such design talent going to waste!!
Bloom where you're planted they say, and you've done a great job. I'd find that logo challenging to design, to say "Here, slap that on your chest!!".Good one Leenie!
