So, today at the yard sale, Andrew and I were discussing jobs.
And then I came home, and mom and dad were watching Indiana Jones.
And I got to thinking.
There are a lot of people with shitty jobs in Steven Spielberg movies. Think about it.
Shindler’s List, Jurassic Park, Amistad, ET, Gremlins,The Color Purple, Arachnophobia, The Terminal….
Between people who have to deal with cleaning up dead spiders to dead….dinosaurs…(you totally thought I was going to say Jews, don’t lie)…there are a TON of shitty jobs.
I mean, in the Terminal there are McDonalds employees. The ultimate stereotype of the shitty job, there immortalized by Spielberg.
Hell, and some of them are slaves who aren’t even getting paid.
Hands down, the worst job has to be that poor knight in The Last Crusade.
I mean, seriously. The dude sits, all day, every day, in a hidden temple that has impassable obstacles and challenges JUST in case someone makes it in so he can give them instructions. They could have just made a plaque or something with instructions. Plus, I mean, you’d think they could have like, at least given him a book or something. The Bible would get pretty old, I think.
And on top of all of that, he doesn’t even really DO anything.
“He chose…poorly”. Well, no shit sherlock. Thank you for that brilliant observation. I thought the whole face-melting skeleton exploding bit meant that God was pleased with the selection.
Also, you’d think he could like, dust once in awhile. It’s not like he had anything better to do.
