First Jobs: True Tales of Bad Bosses, Quirky Coworkers, Big Breaks, and Small Paycheck

First Jobs
First Jobs is a series of stories involving the sometimes frustrating work arena.  Some of these jobs were ones that the author herself had undertaken and while Watts describes herself as a, "...wise-a--..." we didn't get a lot of that.  A wise-a-- has a responsibility, after all.  We overlook or even enjoy this quality when it makes us laugh and Watts didn't.  We do have a weird sense of humor though.

There were a few guffaws.  There were some clever moments.  However, there simply wasn't enough laughs and without those, this is simply a collection of work tales.

There are some interesting facets to this piece.  For example, it's interesting how the idea for the book came to be.  It's interesting to share in the experiences of another person.  If we were to meet Watts in person, we think that we would like her. 

We completely understand the premise for First Jobs and it's a great one.  We like it.  We wanted more funny.
