Comparatively speaking

(Attributed to Anon)

Why work is worse than prison.

In prison       You spend the majority of your time in an 8 x 10 cell
At work        You spend the majority of your time in a 6 x 8 cubicle

In prison       You get three meals a day
At work        You only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it

In prison       You get time off for good behaviour
At work        You get rewarded for good behaviour with more work

In prison       A guard unlocks and locks all the doors for you
At work        You must carry a security card and unlock and lock all the doors yourself

In prison       You can watch TV and play games
At work        You get fired for watching TV and playing games

In prison       You get your own toilet
At work        You have to share

In prison       Your family and friends are allowed to visit
At work        You cannot even speak to your family and friends

In prison       All expenses are paid by taxpayers with no work required
At work        You pay all the expenses to go to work and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners

In prison       You spend most of your life looking through bars and wanting to get out
At work        You 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 supervisors

In prison       You have unlimited time to read email
At work        You get fired if you get caught
