The Mother Of All Listeners

(My mom is the type of person who only seems to ever listen to half the words in a sentence.)

Me: “[Coworker] is really bummed that her son had to move away to find work.”

Mom: “What does he do?”

Me: “He’s trying to get a job as a welder, but the shop in town won’t hire him because he just finished his apprenticeship and therefore has no ‘professional’ experience.”

Mom: “Why doesn’t he get an apprenticeship?”

Me: “He did.”

Mom: “Then how come no one will hire him?”

Me: “Because they want someone with more experience.”

Mom: “Then why doesn’t he move somewhere else where they will hire him?”
