I worked for a railroad, but I didn’t have enough training, so I got sidetracked and derailed.

I worked for a bakery because I kneaded the dough, but I loafed.

I worked well in the vegetable section of a supermarket, but I was frozen out and canned.

I enjoyed my afterschool job as a bowling alley pinsetter, but the pay left me little to spare, so I went on strike.

I enjoy writing articles for the Juniper Berry, but I’m not always picked.
