My son is a doctor/lawyer/dentist/architect……
These are good things. Apparently. Losers flip burgers. This is how we are raised.
This is your whole life. You gotta work hard to get there. It becomes your life. Gotta put in overtime to succeed.
Say I flip burgers. Metaphorically.
I get diarrhoea. I go talk about shit to my doctor.
I get booked for smoking pot. I get a public defender.
I get a paycheck. I buy a video game designed by someone who spend months writing code drinking coffee. I smoke pot and play it with a coworker.
I go out on the weekend. I drink Hennessey. I don't work everyday.
My life is a failure. I'm not a success.
Should I feel bad for exploiting these people who are providing for me? I am not jealous of them. I feel they are victims of propaganda and brainwashing. Should I feel that I am taking advantage of them?
