I was having a "moment" the other day at work. The comment I made was, "I'm not cut out for a 8 to 5 job! I should have been a trust fund baby!" Then, I realized that my parents were at fault for my 8 to 5 job because they were the reason why I was not born into a trust fund.
You see my logic.
While at the office, I promptly called my mom and said, "You and dad were very unfair in not allowing me to be a trust fund baby!" My mom, having known me all my life, laughed and hung up on me. I doubt she took my complaint seriously. I'm not really sure who else to complain to because I think my folks are the final decision makers on the trust fund issue.
Later that evening I am eating Chinese food with the same mother who laughed at my earlier comment. The entire meal was pleasant: good food, good company, and funny conversation. Then came time for the fortune cookie ceremonies that end the meal.
I cracked open my fortune cookie and almost started crying. I had no fortune.
The Chinese don't even want me to be a trust fund baby!
On the other hand, mom, after seeing my non-fortune fortune cookie, laughed hysterically.
