Sweating it out on the country road

I thought I had it made when I got a task on the boardwalk.

I didn’t even have to be responsible for anything care about handling currency or ringing up tickets, they just wanted myself and others to chat people up and get them to play the basketball game.

I know you’ve seen it before, it’s a regulation sized basketball hoop about several feet away, and people see how several baskets they can make in under 2 fifths. It’s not even hard, it’s certainly a matter of trying to do it better than the guy next to you, so the people I was with and I do a pretty wonderful business. I wondered why no one else wanted this task, and that was because the office itself had air conditioner, and no one else wanted to be out in the hot sun that much, but neither did I, of course, once I realized there was an option for air conditioner but since I was the modern guy I got stuck with the hottest, sweatiest task… While the manager and the other workers get to chill and do paperwork in the glorious cooling of the office, I am treading the board and making the currency. Everyone else just works 1 fifth outside, then one fifth in the AC, however I do all 4 of my fifths out in the sun, how is that fair? I am thinking about applying to work in the video game arcade, with is 100% indoors and 100% air conditioned. I want to stay on the boardwalk, I like it here, however I certainly need more cooling in my life.
