Dang--- three years ago, this was my family and me, minus the firearms joke. I was expecting, he got laid off and we came within three weeks of losing our home when he got another job. We'd have been evicted right around my due date. I am laughing at this because it's so real! The bad memory is being displaced!
Scott needs to show headhunters calling-- that was terrible. They were offering my husband jobs, but he'd have to give them 60%of his salary for three months, and he'd not be able to get a job for at least six weeks. When he got the other job on his own, they threatened him and he was nice but explained that food came first. They yelled at him and three days later called asking if he had references to see about hiring. I answered the phone and sent them to people to jerk their chains-- that was a Dogbert move! Scott could do a new character, "Harry the Headhunter" for a while and have some real fun with that.
Ohh come on. This is pure Gold. I think its fantastic that he's relating to common times as us.
Come on people, theres far worse things happening out there that we should be concerned about then a comic making us smile & laugh. I say more of it!
To some degree it's hitting home for me, because my property has gone into foreclosure as we speak. I am NOT; however, going to "boo" Scott for doing so. It just makes me feel like he's trying to relate. I mean, I don't know Adams' life story, so how am I to know that he didn't face hard times at some point?
No, this isn't gut-bustingly funny, but it's Dilbert being Dilbert, and that's good enough for me. And, like Pytry implies, we don't know how Adams' is setting this up. He may have us rolling on the floor in a couple of days about it.
