The Protestant Work Ethic

I am on summer break from Uni and currently staying with my father in a village in Cambridgeshire.

He has organised a summer vacation job for me at a local corner shop. I hate it. And I tell him so. Daily.

His standard response is "It'll be good for you, Pixie-san, to experience the work environment."

"If it is so good for me,  Daddy-sensi, why does it make me feel so shit? Huh?" is my standard reply.

Sometimes his Zen Koans just have no bearing on the reality of the situation.
