4)  The business's annual COFFEE expense is more than your wages.

5)  They're beginning to train DOGS to do your job.

6)  A resumé was not necessary, but a drug test WAS.

7)  Your parking space?  Pick any street.

8)  Benefits?  What benefits?  Who said anything about benefits?

9)  If in the unlikely event that you have an office, you get the oldest furniture in the building.  Often it's older than YOU are.

11) Your supervisor laughed behind your back when you showed up on your first day of work wearing a suit and tie.

12) Petty cash issues your paycheck.
