Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy. Garson hung around outside factory gates across the US in the s to talk to the workers who stacked ping pong paddles, canned tuna and bottled lipgloss.

When I was 15 I worked at a Mexican restaurant where I was the only non-male, non-Mexican on staff besides our manager, a 4'11" woman who would only speak Spanish to me even after I told her several times that I don't speak any Spanish.
