	I have been here almost three years, since I got layed off from
	{strains of it's a small world after all start in the background)
	boss has been here 9 years but started out as a guy who moved
scenery around, then as a video editor, then worked my position under his
mentor. After the mentor left he moved up and I was hired. I think part of
the problem is that he is afraid to change anything because he cannot fix it
if it does break.
