    Boring job makes for a crappy summer - By: Ashley Spencer, Daily Cardinal, WI
    The strongest people learn to survive. If a plane ever crashes in the middle of a deserted island you must learn to drink your own pee, eat little animals’ insides, or, if you’re lucky, join the cast of Lost. The work place is not much different. Some days, the coffee tastes funky. Sometimes you eat questionable brownies a co-worker baked, one who you know for a fact neglects to wash her hands after she uses the bathroom.

    But because you have no cash, your only choice is to persevere. You must learn to endure pointless three hour meetings, restricting business attire, and the pervy co-worker who sweats profusely and sits way too close to you on the bus. It’s like working for Michael Scott sans any comedy or irony, so you must learn the other necessary rules of the “jungle.”
