People in this country really need to stop looking down at employment and work in general. Your job is not anymore important than mine, we all contribute to the economy in some regards. A garbageman picking up your trash is no different than a buser working at a fine dining restaurant.
I also find it funny that people think working say at a Burger King is a choice, you really don’t know that persons circumstances. They may have applied for all other open positions in their area and BK was the only one that would hire them. Do not be so quick to judge or look down upon others, you only perpetuate the class warfare and “Me against them” mentality that many Americans have adopted.
“Letting go of people or traditions is hard because you invest so much in them that to let go can be scary, but it can also be liberating; or essential to your happiness. If you don’t let go you can find yourself in a dark place, unable to kick your worst habits. And sometimes if we truly love someone we have to be okay with letting go. Jeffrey Chaucer wrote, “Time heals all wounds,” but what he failed to mention was the scars those wounds leave behind. The painful things that happen to us permanently leave their mark. They don’t necessarily hurt anymore but they’re always their as a reminder; as a memory. And as time passes, maybe the memory gets a little fuzzy. But we always have the scar to remind us it happened; that we lived through it; that we survived. And maybe I had some scars on me, but I felt like I was now ready to leave my mark on the world.”—Carrie Bradshaw, The Carrie Diaries (via maseratidownadeadendstreet)
