“My job is secure. No one else wants it”

“My job is secure. No one else wants it” is a jocular line that has been printed on T-shirts and bumper stickers. “Certainly your job issecure, Argyle—no one else wants it!” was printed in the newspaper comic “Strictly Business” in November 1959.
 
“My job is secure. No one else wants it” became popular in 2005.
 
 
21 November 1959, Evening World-Herald (Omaha, NE), “Strictly Business” comic strip by Dale McFeatters, pg. 14, col. 6:
“Certainly your job issecure, Argyle—no one else wants it!”

ECONOMIC UPDATE: If your job is secure because nobody else wants it, I wouldn’t call that “Job Security.”

Among the expressions of entitlement and lack of motivation is a mug on a non-character’s desk reading “My job is secure — No one else wants it!” and another individual airing out her positivity based on it being casual Friday and another claiming she never drank before starting her current government position.
