Thank You For This Crummy Job

Over at The High Calling, David Rupert thanks God for his crummy job:

I sense that I’m not alone. During the recession my friends went from the rolls of short-term unemployed to long-term. Others were underemployed, finding work as temps or part time workers, benefits trimmed or stripped outright.
