Unemployment is Excellent

Given a choice between getting a check every week for doing nothing and getting a check every week for flushing 40 hours of the prime of their lives down the toilet, they chose the latter. I mean, what kind of self-hating, masochistic Protestant bullshit is that?

Not only do I feel no guilt whatsoever about sucking from the state’s teat, I feel that I’m absolutely entitled to it. First of all, the employer that fired me pays for half of my unemployment, and fuck them.

the comments for that article are equally as brilliant as the essay. some of my favorites:

[Hey ernest gd stands for " good dick" just ask your mom, sister, and girlfriend]

[GD, face it : you couldn't get it up with a winch and horse doses of viagra, you human ape.]

[What a cliche - if you're going to fight convention, at least be original. This schtick was trite when I first heard it in "Reality Bites."
You pose as if you're rejecting "consumerism," as if this is some principled stand that justifies the fact that you use other people. You trot out cute little "firing" stories as if this builds your cred, to show that you really really mean it! What a poseur. You are just as hooked on consumerism as anyone else - you live in one of the world's most modern cities, you drink clean water and apparently eat decent food, you have credit cards -- yeah you're a true rebel, aren't you. Why don't you back up your state-of-nature bullshit and move to a second or third world country without a functioning government. And then, if you wrote something that didn't crib from Chomsky's high school term papers, you might have something original to say.
There are a number of people who work "9 to 5" but do so in a manner that helps other people or improves our society. And given that there are people with real problems, who struggle against real injustice (rather than a self-imposed ennui), it is virtually imposslbe for me not to hope that 50 years from now you are enjoying the fruit of your labor. ]
