don't quit your day job

The owner of a company I support walks in while I'm setting up a network printer. After some brief chat about how his family is, how business is, et cetera, he walks out and back in and says, "Jim, every day I wish I had your job instead of mine just a little bit more."

I look up at him quizzically and ask "what's got you down about your job?" and he says - I kid you not - "I am tired of dealing with incompetent jackasses."

I almost fucking DIED laughing, and advised him not to start a new career in IT.
