Mat Space

I have Office Space syndrome...I work just hard enough to not get fired.I train Jiu-Jitsu like it’s my job, and by that I mean I do just enough to not get fired! I’m kidding, I actually try to work as hard as I can, but if Jiu-Jitsu could fire me, it probably would’ve happened a long time ago. As a matter of fact, I doubt I would’ve have even been hired in the first place, I imagine the interview might’ve gone like this…

Jiu-Jitsu- “I’m sorry, but you seem to have absolutely no skills which qualify you to be a part of this company.”

Me- “But you have a wonderful on-the-job training program, and I promise that if you hire me, I will never quit!”

Well actually, that’s what I would say now, but six years ago it probably would’ve been more like this…

Jiu-Jitsu- “I’m sorry, but you seem to have absolutely no skills which qualify you to be a part of this company.”

Me- “You’re right. Goodbye.”

Thankfully, training at Lincoln BJJ isn’t anything like working at Initech! For one thing, no one ever has a case of the Monday’s, unless maybe class is cancelled on Monday for some reason. It’s also not like working at Chotskies, because I don’t like to wear much flair on my gi, and they’re perfectly okay with that!

Is this good for the company?It would actually be pretty stupid for Jiu-Jitsu to fire me, seeing as how I pay money to work at it, but sometimes I wonder if me being there is really good for the company. Even though Jiu-Jitsu will never be a job for me, I do wish that I could train as if it was, I’d be all like “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta!”. Fuckin’ A, man.
