He searched for a job for two years. Finally landed one. And then he quits his job to go get smelly in Zucotti Park. His message? He has none! He has no clear message just like all of the other clueless boobs draining city resources and trashing the urban landscape.

This guy is a loser. He reminds me of Cheers' "Woody"; not quite here and not quite there but a harmless boob nonetheless.

Working on his Masters? He typifies a lost generation inside of American Academia.

Being paid to help others find gainful employment didn't "have much of a future", according to him. Like being a bum is better? I'm sure his counselor at college told him the same thing mine told me; that I might not find a job in my area that was relevant to my major. Or that it might take more than three years to pay off the student loans. The smart student notices what's in demand, locally. Like how many local businesses are going to need or want to hire an interior decorator on a regular basis? Too bad reality hurts sometimes. This guy needs to stop pouting and get a backbone.
