After High School, but before College, I had a job working on a packaging line. It was third shift where you go in at Midnight and work till 8 AM. I was in the break room and I spotted the guy who was working on the line next to mine and since he looked like a decent guy, I asked him how long has he been working here. He told me ever since he got out of prison. I asked him why he went to prison and he said, “Murder”. I never spoke another word to him.
