Cathedral of depair
The prisoner's job, discussed further

The other day i mentioned to my editing tutor (northern irishman by the name of eddie, always reminds me of the frontman from Therapy?) that i had found myself a job finally. He asked me where, i informed him it was a cinema back home (i commute for 45 minutes on the train to Canterbury everyday)

"a multiplex?" said he,

"yep"

"Ah," he stated sadly, "they're soulless places."

He still thinks very fondly of his time as a projectionist in some art house cinema, about as far away from being a Team Member tearing tickets at Cineworld as you can be and still be in the same industry. Now every time i go back to work i think of Eddie's three word assesment and come to the conclusion that it is precisely accurate.

hardly any of the regular staff have been working there more than a year, people are already asking me how long i plan to hang around and two workers have quit since i started. Matt's older brother Kev, who has been there three years is the longest serving member of staff i can find.

Must be a pretty shitty place to work eh? well no, thats the odd thing. It's not too much hard work compared to say, a job in a bar or restaurant, or McDonalds (shudder).

I think that may be the key to my job satisfaction (in manner if speaking) my work at Gilligham FC was far more boring, and my summer Jobs with Beck and Pollitzer were much harder work. This job couldnt hope to compare to either of those when it comes to shittyness. The whiney buggers working at cineworld don't know they're born. Yet there is a pall of depression hanging over the place and it gets you after a while, the place isnt just soulless, eventually it's soul destroying. It's alarming to think i'm probably going to be here at least until i've finished uni, and by then i'll probably be one of the longest serving members of staff.
