    I don't mind watching training videos if they have something to do with my job. I don't even mind the generic "workplace" videos meant to teach a lesson in the right and wrong way to get something done - they're at least good for a laugh in a Goofus and Gallant sort of way.

    But when a video starts off with an old cowboy riding through the fields talking about how much he loves his job . . . EEEUUUCCHHHHH.

    And I look down and see the video is half an hour long, with a fucking test at the end. This is going to be so douchey.

    New job at Marlboro, or auditioning for the Village People?

    This is really fucking ponderous. "If you can't do what you love, love what you do." Fucking die.

    I would have stood up and, when they asked me where I was going, said "I'm sold, being a cowboy looks awesome, I'll go do that".

    What fucking morons show a "motivational" video of people who love other careers? "As you can see, this cowboy, astronaut, and NBA player are all extremely happy with their lives. For the rest of you, please enjoy watching them laugh and smile for the next four minutes".

    I don't understand motivational videos and speeches and their huge popularity. What good does this boring yapping do?

    My job made us watch a video called "Give Them The Pickle". Yeah, there were jokes made.

    A little sample.

    They motivate people to self actualize, shift paradigms and achieve success.

    You’ll need to watch at least 100 hours of Ted talks if you’re ever going to be anything but a total loser.

    Bah, motivational speeches were exciting in the 1930s. Now they just fail to make any points.

    Fine, be that way. Don’t watch any Ted talks. Just be an asexual, and live with a bunch of cats until you die penniless and alone.

    See if I give a care.

    I was just asked to offer a rate for subtitling 55 hours of motivational videos. It's 55 hrs of an old man in a suit, speaking in a drone-like voice and waving his hands around a little bit.

    Maybe there is chance for me to be human after all.

    Is that your profession? You do video and subtitle stuff? Cuz I got some homemade snuff films, and the dialogue is garbled and hard to make out what with all the screaming and stuff.

    Take care of that humanity problem you’re facing too.

    I have a lot of experience in trying to understand garbling and screams.
