Miami, Florida - October 17, 2001 (11:26am)   Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen, pour myself a cup of ambition and yawn and stretch and try to come to life. Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin’, out on the street the traffic starts jumpin’, the folks like me on the job from nine to five. Workin’ nine to five, what a way to make a living, barely gettin’ by it’s all takin’ and no givin’. They just use your mind and they never give you credit, it’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it. Nine to five, for service and devotion, you would think that I would deserve a fair promotion. Want to move ahead but the boss won’t seem to let me, I swear sometimes that man is out to get me. They let you dream just to watch ’em shatter, you’re just a step on the boss-man’s ladder but you got dreams he’ll never take away. You’re in the same boat with a lotta your friends, waitin’ for the day your ship’ll come in then the tide’s gonna turn and it’s all gonna roll your way. Workin’ nine to five what a way to make a livin’, barely gettin’ by it’s all takin’ and no givin’. They just use your mind and you never get the credit, it’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it Nine to five, yeah, they got you where they want you, there’s a better life and you think about it, don’t you. It’s a rich man’s game no matter what they call it and you spend your life puttin’ money in his wallet. Nine to five, whoa, what a way to make a livin’, barely gettin’ by it’s all takin’ and no givin’. They just use your mind and they never give you credit, it’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it. Nine to five, yeah, they got you where they want you, there’s a better life and you dream about it, don’t you. It’s a rich man’s game no matter what they call it and you spend your life puttin’ money in his wallet. Nine to five...I am the one wearing the black shirt with the cool musical tie with the piano keys. My colleagues and I are celebrating the completion of the Thomson Elite accounting conversion, which was a monumental task that took many months of intense hard work. We worked a lot more than just nine to five to get this job done. What a way to make a living! I’d rather be a musician as playing music is certainly a lot more fun than being stuck in an office for more than 40 hours a week, LOL! (Photo by Isabel Insua-Garcia)
