Yeah, you caught me napping on the job. It’s no big deal. I’m Maya, Senior Guard Dog at Barley Darts. The pay sucks, but I get free room and board. At least the food ain’t half bad. Meals vary and I have time to choke ’em down.
The last couple of weeks have been tough. It’s been way too hot. The bugs won’t leave me alone. I hate those gosh-darn weed seeds, too. They’re at just the right height to get in my eyes. How the heck am I supposed to do my job? I tell ya, I’ll go blind at this rate. But I don’t dare complain. At least I have a job. That’s more than some folks.
I’m gettin’ close to retirement, too. Thank God! I don’t know how anyone puts up with all these young’uns. Just the other day, the bosses brought in another one. All these whippersnappers wanna do is run around! Heck, half the time they go in circles and never get anything done.
And they don’t show anyone respect. They constantly pick and poke at everything and everyone. Pfft. If the bosses expect me to teach them anything, they’re crazy! I can’t even keep ’em all in a straight line. Shoot! I gave up a long time ago.
