I heard a story from a parent yesterday that made me wonder just how ungrateful some can be. The story is, their son (who is married and has children) has been unemployed for a while as their previous place of work closed.
Luckily, they got a secure job with great benefits which started 3 weeks ago.
Now they are steaming mad about this new job a lot of people would love to have, because their coffee break is 5 minutes shorter than it is supposed to be...as a company meeting cut into that time.
Did they not suffer enough on unemployment over the last year to be happy and grateful for the opportunity to properly support their family? What (if any) is this person even thinking?
As much as I do not love what I do every single day I do it, I am grateful for it. Personally I think it is bad Karma to be dissing your new job like that.
On a fun note, D and I are off to test drive Subarus today. So if you see one whizzing by at a high rate of speed, it may just be us! : )
