First, let me just say I was glad I was not drinking anything while reading this. I refrained from that. My husband said he never heard me laugh so much from reading a book. At one point, I was literally in tears.
Jass Richards is brilliant with the snappy comebacks and the unending fountain of information she can spout forth. And I do mean that quite literally... the spouting part.
Jass takes you from job to job, from the psych halfway house, where her absolute sense of logic helps more patients than the people trained to work there, to the maintenance of a summer camp, where the woman weaves in and out of the kids, dancing, saying, "I don't have to deal with you! I don't have to deal with you!"
The quick wit, the sharp tongue, the acid words and sarcasm that literally oozes from her pores... beautiful. I laughed so hard I cried in some places. I do admit, there were a few parts where I got just a little lost, (sort of like when she traveled in Europe) but quickly regained my bearings as I read on.
Would I recommend this book? Do dogs have squeaky mice and bright green tennis balls? Yes. Yes they do. So yes, I would definitely tell you to read this book if you want a fun romp, a good laugh and a couple of pointers on how to get let go of a job you can no longer stand. You can get fired with style.

This book really made me laugh when I started it. I mean really laugh. It is a funny, sharp and witty story. However I eventually started getting tired of the heavy feminist angle. Constantly putting down men and also going further and putting down children and women who have them. Still it was full of very funny parts.

This book is loaded with jokes and even a good point here and there. I really liked the point when she was working with mental patients. Why do they put mentally disabled with mentally disturbed patients, it's like making "Corky room with Hitler."

Mostly I enjoyed it, I think it's a book to be savored slowly, it's always on...always moving...always funny. I think I just got burnt. I'm not done with it yet, but I am not going to delete. I will pick it up when I need a laugh.

Format: Paperback
Brett has trouble holding down a job. Mainly because she's an outspoken misantrope who is prone to turn a deadend job into a social engineering experiment. Sometimes with comically disasterous results, sometimes with comically successful results. (Like pairing up a compulsive shopper with a kleptomaniac for an outing at the mall.) I don't agree with everything she says, but I will defend her right to say it -- because she's hilarious!

My favorite part was when she taught a highschool girls' sex ed class that 70% of boys will lie to get sex, 80% won't use a condom, yet 90% are pro-life. She was reprimanded, of course. I think she should have gotten a medal.

You will likely be offended at one point or another, but if you are secure enough to laugh at your own sacred cows instead of just everyone else's, this is a must read.
