Dustinland — The Other Side

Regarding this week’s Dustinland: You know, at the end of Office Space, the main dude from the movie solves his office worker blues by trading a white collar for a blue one and becoming a construction worker. I always thought that was a complete BS ending. Blue collar jobs suck just as much as white collar jobs — just for different reasons. At the end of the day, we’ve all had times when we’ve seen someone with a job that’s the complete opposite of ours and thought, man, I’d be happy doing that instead of this crap. Investment bankers get jealous of teachers, guys in bands get jealous of lawyers — everyone sees that other route as the way to happiness when their own road is going the wrong way. What’s the answer? Who knows? It’s different for everyone. Unless you win the lotto. That seems to work all around.

UPDATE: In what is becoming a pretty sweet trend, this strip is pretty hot on Digg right now. Thanks MakiMaki!
