People in bullshit jobs experiencing existential crisis

PEOPLE in jobs that are total bollocks are wondering if they have wasted their lives, they have confirmed. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic ravages the world, digital transformation gurus and brand wealth managers are questioning if perhaps they should have done something more useful with their time on earth.

Global relationship consultant Julian Cook said: “When I was little I wanted to be a lorry driver. Instead I do this, which I always knew was a bit of a joke but I got a company car and a bonus so it was fine.

“But now I look at the state of the world and wonder what the f**k I’ve been doing coming up with social media strategies and ‘brand engagement battle plans’ when I could have been, I don’t know. Driving a lorry.”

Mixologist Nikki Hollis agreed: “I’ve trained for years to do this – to throw bottles in the air before pouring stuff out of them. What was I thinking?

“My sister works in Asda and is basically on the frontlines of humanity’s survival, while I’m chopping up limes in an empty bar and washing my hands every five minutes.”

As the existential panic spread across the country, estate agents and recruitment consultants confirmed that they are so monstrous that if they did not do this they would do something even worse.
