Unique snowflake turns down 40k/year job, whines to the NYT about unemployment

FARK.com: (5470639) Unique snowflake turns down 40k/year job, whines to the NYT about unemployment


How nice it is to have your family pay for your college education and let you live at home, eat their food, use their Internet and whine about not having a line of super duper companies offer you a super duper salary for bringing nothing to the table. Moron. 


This guy would rather mow lawns here and there than take a $40,000/year job? Why not get a reserve commission and put a few years of active duty? He’s young and healthy, has a college degree and nothing else to do. When he finishes his service obligation he can add that to his resume and reap the benefits. 


Correction: in the article he states he was turned down by the Marines for having childhood asthma. Guess what? *I* had childhood asthma until my 11th birthday or so, and I still managed to serve 5 years out of my 6th year enlistment in the US Army before the asthma came back. Their rule was that you should had been asthma-free for at least 10 years.
