It’s one thing to run into a corporate bastard because you expect them there. But these “meaningful” job Karens and Todds can be hard to deal with and THEY ARE FUCKING MERYL STREEP when it comes to acting decent to the right people.
Get your cooking on! People look down on trades but forge them. You’re right — satisfying people with a good meal is very meaningful work.
