As a geologist whose first job was returning library books to shelves and who later had stints as a bag boy in an uncle's grocery store, I would be the last to underappreciate the efforts of the stacking professions. The following quote, however, is quite amusing on many levels:

"The next time somebody goes in - those smart people who say there's something wrong with this - they go into their supermarket, ask themselves this simple question, when they can't find the food they want on the shelves, who is more important - them, the geologist, or the person who stacked the shelves?"

But egads, what would the "snobbish"and "useless" job seeker do without the beneficence of the government secretary? After all making men small and needy is hard work.

Can one say the odds are stacked against you in finding suitable employment in the UK?

Heaven knows, the unimaginable waste of geological talent out in the North Sea that could be put to productive stacking is absolutely appalling!
