“I’m sick and tired of meeting people and the first question out of their mouths is ‘What do you do for a living?’” Jack said. “I do what I do. That’s all they need to know.”
“I get it, Jack, but getting to know someone is often through finding out what they do, whether for a living or for fun,” Alicia said. “Besides, asking what someone does is just a first step to finding out who they really are.”
“Yeah, I know, Alica,” Jack admitted. “You’re right, of course. I’m just being overly sensitive because I’m unemployed at the moment.”
