Fucking love this. I was born and raised blue collar, got into “good paying” desk job after years of working trade jobs…and man, you know what, I miss those old jobs, because I do indeed feel like a dying zoo animal.

Just today in fact I was telling a friend that I might get back into the trades. That’s real work you feel good about at the end of the day, and none of the damn routine.

Anyway, you crafted the Door man beautifully. I’ve been both him and the narrator before, and both these guys resonated with me.

Good stuff. I really enjoyed this.
