So What Good Do You Do?

I was talking about my new job with Pepsi with my girlfriend Laura and she put it best when she said, "you're intelligent and you've got so much potential as a person, why aren't you helping society? What good are you doing besides making people fat"? I looked into her deep charming brown eyes and said "I don't know. I guess you're right". There are so many people that need help in the world and what am I doing to help? .....

Wrong! Silly me. It slipped my mind to respond that we bottle all of the Mid Atlantic Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper. I help bring flavor and the taste of Plano Texas to millions of Americans who inhabit some of the original 13 colonies.

In reality she is correct. What can you say to a girl who wants to devote her life to teaching and molding young minds in the poorest of the poor urban areas? Perhaps... would you like to show up to your job in a Beemer or a Saturn? As for the rest of our conversation, I vowed to Laura to become more creative and social oriented with my career in the future but for now I'll earn some bucks the corporate way.

let her know that one of your good friends spends his time bilking the poor people of the world out of their money. Viva Poker!

Now, I know you're not the type of guy who just wants to make big bucks to buy expensive cars and such. You would rather bike if you could anyways!
Haha.. you know I am happy for your new job :-)
