A man came to my store and purchased a fe w things. He was with his wife and another couple. He mentioned that he was a university professor (retired) and, making small talk, I said “Thank you for the important work that you do.”

He looked me in the eye and said, “Thank YOU for not being on welfare”

Huh? I have a college degree and speak several languages. Jobs can be hard to find, but they are out there!!

His wife explained to me that the man was just talking about how “milennials” don’t want to work.

Well, sir, I remember the year 2000 quite well! Thank you for thinking I am young enough to be a Millennial! And yes, I love my job. Welfare is there for people who need it. It is far better to be working, if you can find a job. So THANK YOU to everyone, all around the world, for having a job!
