Meet Bill

Mensagem por Ragnar Lothbrok em 2/9/2015, 22:34

Conheça o Bill, um americano médio. 


"In the modern age, we have the same 24 hours a day that every human has enjoyed for thousands of years. But when you look around, you might be forgiven for thinking that time has somehow sped up and that our days have grown shorter. People seem harried and worn out. If you ask them how they’re doing, “Busy, busy, busy!” is often the answer.
40% of Americans say they’re overworked, half feel there are too many tasks to complete each week, two-thirds feel they don’t have enough time for themselves or their spouses, and three-fourths say they don’t get to spend as much time with their kids as they’d like. And as far as the other parts of life, well, they can’t be bothered with them at all".

Deixei o link porque pra passar o texto pra cá necessita muitas edições.

Inclusive o Bill recebe uma ligação de ninguém menos que.... Rant Casey, reparem:

Then it’s a little more web surfing and one last check of his Facebook feed. Right before he turns in, Bill gets a text from a friend: “Hey man! Want to go mountain biking this Saturday?” “Sorry,” Bill replies, “I’m too busy. Maybe another time.”

[ltr]Making small talk? Too tiresome.
Going out and socializing, even with old friends? Ditto.
Throwing a party? Too much work.
Going to church or doing service? Too busy.
Following basic manners and acting civil? Too tired to make the effort.[/ltr]

A ideia do ''Trabalho Sombra'' também é muito boa 

''You perform shadow work whenever you do jobs that used to be done by a paid employee, but have now been outsourced to the consumer: pumping gas, booking a travel itinerary, bussing a table, and so on. We likewise do shadow work whenever we bank online or use an ATM instead of a teller, check-in to flights or a hotel using a kiosk rather than a human, and wait on hold for an hour to talk to a scarce customer service representative. When we can’t find a knowledgeable salesman to talk to and get a recommendation from at a big box store, and instead must take over his job and shop online, spending hours comparing model features and reading reviews, we’re doing shadow work then too. When we follow through on these online transactions, entering in our credit card number and address for the umpteenth thousandth time, we do yet more shadow work — this time as DIY cashiers.''

O Bill era um dos putos de quem eu falava no desabafo. Esse viado aí não comparece nem se houver sorteio de buceta num churrasco. "Ah meuô, tô pregado".
