Cardboard

i interviewed to work in the factory of a box company once. they moment i knew i didn’t have the job was when they - having seen my resume and everything else - asked me what experience i had in cardboard.

seriously.

so, i explained, in-depth, about how i had been using cardboard since i was a child. i loved storing things in it. building houses and mazes, using pieces to build projects and other crafts, etc.

you could see the anger and condescension in their eyes.

but what did they expect? that was, in truth, my experience in cardboard.

computers are cardboard.
