"The thought of sitting in front of a man behind a desk and telling him that I wanted a job, that I was qualified for a job, was too much for me. Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed.
So I stayed in bed and drank.
When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn't have you by the throat."
Factotum, Charles Bukowski
