Graffit about Work and the Workplace

Graffiti Book Image

As an author and occasional professional speaker specializing in helping people be happy away from the traditional workplace, I have had an interest in good quotations about work and the workplace.

It naturally follows that interesting anonymous comments about the workplace in the form of graffiti also get my attention.

Some time ago I did a book called Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed: Graffiti for the Soul.
 
Firefly Books paid me a $5,000 advance to publish the book.
 
Much against my wishes, Firefly changed the title to Off the Wall: Graffiti for the Soul.
 
I now provide the content from that book as seven free e-books (in PDF format).
 
These seven free ebooks of graffiti (in PDF format and graffito fonts) have it all:

Wisdom. Ridicule. Sarcasm. Nonsense. Comedy. Mockery. Social commentary. Valuable insight. They are the ultimate compendium of creative college humor.

You can download the seven volumes of graffiti from the Graffiti for the Soul Series at the bottom of the page:
 
The following twelve items come from the e-books:

Workplace Graffiti to Remind You of the Typical Workplace

  • Working here is a nightmare. You want to wake up and leave but you need the sleep.
  • I owe. I owe. And off to work I go.
  • The thought of suicide has helped me get through many days at work.
  • Teamwork magically inspires our group to come up with solutions that are consistently and considerably dumber than any one of us.
  • My job is a big secret. Even I don't know what I am doing.
  • As long as we continue to work here, happiness is just an idea.
  • Can I trade this job for what's behind door Number 2?
  • I'm just working here till a good fast-food job opens up.
  • Like to meet new people? Like a change? Like excitement? Like a new job? Then screw up just one more time!
  • Around here, "progress" is everything getting worse at a slower rate than it used to.
  • I just took a self-improvement course and discovered I no longer need to punish, deceive, or compromise myself - unless I want to keep my job.
  • My work cubicle is just a padded cell without a door. I want my freedom and I want it now.

If you have just been fired from your job and are considering another job like it, the above comments may motivate you to consider something different that will lead to real career fulfillment.

We start early in the morning
And work until we have to go to bed.
If this is all there is to living,
We would all rather be dead.
 

Whenever you catch yourself yearning for the benefits that your old job provided, it's best to look at the other side of the coin. It's like reminiscing about an old love affair. We tend to remember the good things much more so than the bad ones.

So when you feel a little dejected because you miss the routine of your old job, consider all the things that you didn't like about the job.

More Workplace Graffiti

  • That raise you have been expecting is not expecting you.
  • You can tell a Union man by his hands. They are always in his pockets.
  • You can't blame this company's big mess on one person. This took real teamwork.
  • If you're in the rat race, remember there is no prize for outrunning a rat.
