Shrinks And Cops

The only county jobs that are consistently available where I live are for psychiatrists at the Mental Health Department and sheriffs. Shrinks and cops. What does that tell you?

Actually, a couple of other standbys crop up every full moon or so — ‘mental health driver’ and kennel attendant. Chauffeuring around the mentally ill or scooping up shit at the dog pound, take your pick. Mom never said life would be easy. Since my DMV record is, ahem, how shall I put this, less than perfect, I’d better grab a shovel.

This is no world for a man of spirit, I tell you!
