At my first and only corporate job interview the boss asked if I knew the company's purpose. Uh... collecting information to improve the railroad system? No, our purpose is to make money, he said. Once in Michigan I'd worked a month of night shifts inserting U-bolts on an assembly line and vowed never to work only or even primarily for money again. But now we needed money so I was relieved to get this data entry job with Price Williams in Silver Spring. Accurate coding was a mind game, dependable as regular paychecks. Lunch hours, evenings, weekends, holidays real life played out with family and friends on picnics and camping trips, at parties in homes, yards, parks, schools and churches.
