Politician: What do you do all day?
Average Joe: You mean after work or school?
Politician: Yeah! after all that.
Average Joe: Nothing much. Read books, browse the web, and/or scare myself by watching some movies.
Politician: Do you know we are watching you?
Average Joe: I also wear make-up sometimes because I want to make a good impression.
Politician: No! I did not mean it that way.
Average Joe: Whatever! If you are watching me, then why won’t you pay for my undergarments. I mean I just have money for my food and books─the government is paying for education and shelter. But, that does not do anything at my end. After graduation, I have to figure out how to handle the Expectation Gap on my own. I am sure you are going to stay silent like a good wife even then.
Politician: (does not even think about all the stored money) You will be okay! It will let up on its own. Life has its ups and downs.
Average Joe: (does not know anything about stored money because he is too young) Thanks for the good wishes. My heart is at rest.
Politician: Oh great! You sound smart.
Average Joe: People excel not because they are smart but because they have emotional support. How do I get emotional support when your system keeps throwing me out despite all my qualifications, awards, and skills?
Politician: It will be alright in a couple of more years.
Average Joe: But, you have been telling me this since I was 20 years old. Seriously! I am 30 now.
Politician: You are too frank. This is why I don’t like talking to you at all.
Average Joe: Sometimes, we see reality through stereotypes and bluffs. If all the above that I say is untrustworthy, then why give me a chance at all?
Politician: I had no idea you are so angry just because you have to be a bartender after graduating, and I have to just fly around from one country to another.
Average Joe: I am not talking to you anymore. I am going to go home and watch “Dracula“. He is a hero, you know what I mean. And, he has real teeth. Nowadays, we are left without Dental care. It’s really that expensive. So, we must watch someone else’s teeth to receive proper motivational support. By the way, “Dracula” is better than the art galleries where the clothes of the Aboriginals are on display while your cops are busy raping and killing them. Rape is a social construct and the way people view women is taught and learned in a group setting. Hey! But, why am I telling you this? You are a politician. Shouldn’t you be more versed than just a frigging bartender.
