I just have to get another job --- but what'll it be?
Genre

Characters

Synopsis
Moronica gets a job as a city street cleaner. She cleans her assigned area then decides to "re-arrange a few things to make the street look nicer," just as she does when she spring-cleans her apartment. The "few things" include a fire hydrant, traffic signs, etc. Moronica loses another job.

Indexer Notes

When the City Street Commissioner refuses to hire Moronica because she's a woman, she threatens to sue for discrimination, a rather progressive plot twist for the era.
