TriadCity Message of the Day
Enjoy standing in one place for great lengths of time?
Determined to make an honest living?
Inspired with entrepreneurial get-up-and-gumption?
We have just the NorthEastern job for you.
The management of the prestigious Parkweather Tower complex will pay you an honest hourly wage to impersonate the statue of your choice, inside its charming statue garden in the Park NorthEast. "Living Statues", as they say. This could be you!
What do you have to do?
Just go there, and don't move.
Every TriadCity hour, you'll be automatically paid the current U.S. national hourly minimum wage, in Dinars of course, for your honest hour's work. That's seven Dinars per TriadCity hour for just standing there. Hard to find anything more character-shaping, in a Horatio Alger kinda way.
Know what? You might even get tips! The nannies and law clerks and similar gentry you're there to amuse can sometimes be quite generous with their appreciation. Or not. Takes all kinds to make a world, hey?
You'll note that the other Thirds populate their statue gardens dissimilarly. NorthWest's contains amateurish wooden carvings of long-ago figures from history such as Harriet Tubman and Spartacus, probably contributed by local children. South's features holographic images of noted philanthropists including Bill and Melinda Gates, Alfred Nobel, Kylie Minogue, and Bono. 'Cause life's all about who you emulate.
None of these statues is remunerated for their labor, though. That's why many citizens of NorthEast demand, "An honest days' pay fer an honest days' work!"
