Working for a living is terrible even when you had very low expectations as a child, such as working as a middle manager in HR, which was always Guru’s dream. Not all children are lucky enough to have such mundane dreams though. Poor little Jessica Rosbrook is being primed for a life of bitter disappointment, having landed a job as a toy tester at the age of five.
Poor Jessica is sent the latest toys by toy firm Tomy. She plays with them and provides her feedback on how much she enjoyed the playing. It’s the perfect job! Guru would love to do it, so imagine how a five-year-old feels. For Jessica a life of terrible disappointment awaits, beginning with her next job after toy-tester, which is very unlikely to be toy-tester. Her parents would do well to acquaint themselves with the work of Seneca before her teenage years.
