I'd do something about it if Workshop Patterns career is one of the great prob- ems of tife. Many men in middle age, after working a quarter century or more at one calling, wonder if they didn't perhaps make the wrong choice. They half-yearn to be something else. The office worker wonders if he wouldn't be happier if he had become an engineer. The traveling salesman wonders if he wouldn't get more kick out of living if he ran a shoe store. The doctor wonders if it wouldn't be better to be a business tycoon—and enjoy his own ulcers instead of having to treat those of others. money to contribute to worthwhile causes. You could scratch yourself in public, as the only spectators would be chipmunks and squirrels. You could flick cigar ashes on the floor and not get bawled out. You could take a shower without having to fight your way through a bathroom forest of drying nylon stockings.

You would never, never, never have to ask the boss for a raise. Each evening as the sun sank in glory you'd sit in your front porch rocker, patting your hound dog's head, as you broded over the one big decision of the day: "What shall I do tomorrow—go hunting, or go fishing?"
