I know this guy. He's a nice guy, and he drives a forklift. He prefers to earn his money by cooking, and has done so quite well in the past. He's also an aspiring artist - graphic novelist to be exact.
So he's a cook. He's an artist. But he currently earns his paychecks by driving a forklift, and he's okay with that. He calls it his "purgatory" job. It's not ideal, but he's also grateful enough to know that it could be much worse.
