passing time.....!

I found this thing on one of the sites I visit, and since I'd reflected on the same subject just very recently, I used (with some additions) the text to present you with some facts!


Prison vs. Work

IN spend the majority of your time in an 8x10
AT spend most of your time in a 6x8 cubicle.

IN get three meals a day.
AT only get a break for one meal and you
have to pay for it.

IN get time off for good behavior.
AT get rewarded for good behavior with
more work.

IN PRISON...a guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT must carry around a security card and
unlock and open all the doors yourself.

IN can watch TV and play games.
AT get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN get your own toilet.
AT have to share.

IN PRISON...they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT cannot even speak to your family and friends.

IN PRISON...all expenses are paid by taxpayers with no
work required.
AT get to pay all the expenses to go to work
and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for

IN spend most of your life looking through
bars from the inside wanting to get out.
AT spend most of your time wanting to get out
and go inside bars.

IN PRISON...there are wardens who are often sadistic.
AT WORK...they are called managers.

That was the original, and I'll throw a couple of others in

In prison, if you're ill, somebody will notice it!

Outside: Only the smell of putrefaction could attract

In prison, if you're ill, the hospital is right round the corner!

In prison, you won't have to pay a small fortune for daily
hospital accommodation!

In prison, your medecines are free!

In prison, when you die, they'll bury or burn you - free of

In prison you don't have to pay for surveillance.

In prison, the staff do less bad treatment of "clients"
than in many old people's homes, and for free....!

Only trouble - in prison they have to let you out
when your time's served, and you've got used to good service!
