Quote of the Day: Curbing Desires During Unemployment?

Part of the frustration is this incredibly long build-up to nothing. Like, ‘Why did I spend 22 years getting A’s and studying for the chance to eat canned chili?’

… I was in the airport watching people move bags from the curb to the curbside check-in, thinking, ‘At least they do something all day long, and I have $450,000 in education and fancy everything, and I’m sitting around all day and watching 2.5 movies a day?’

Brad, a 28-year-old New York lawyer who was unemployed for six months. (Gavel bang: The Careerist.)
