A commenter left me a missive about how anyone who wanted to work could. Which is just fucking bullshit.

It's a common belief among Republicans and others who have jobs, but it's total nonsense.

My reply:
I rarely disagree with comments, but this is an exception.


I've been turned down for jobs because I was under qualified, over qualified, too old, too young. And I'm a white Anglo male.

I know many who had rejection problems because of no permanent address or a phone number.

They had no permanent address or a phone number because they were fucking unemployed.

I welcome you to the goddamn real world.

Truth is, there's absolutely nothing funny about the graphic.

LOL. Same guy, I bet, left pretty much the same comment about the unemployment report where I blog. So I guess he found a job.

I'm safely past the "too young" barrier but overqualified, underqualified, too old, and too goddamn grumpy are still on the list.

Hang in.
