Hoping To Be Fired

by Rachelle Allen

I should have asked more in-depth questions when I interviewed for this job. That's what happens when you're broke; you'll take anything.

Now I spend my days looking bitter and, during off hours with friends, answering their question, "Why the sour look?" with these words:

"I'm a lemon taster."
