Remembering that a situation could always be worse is pretty good advice. It helps prevents situations like this where you complain to someone who actually does have it worse. I’m not saying this is autobiographical or anything, but this pretty much happens to me at least once a week. I should shut up.
There’s just something funny to me about the fry cook at Chickentopia making Möbius strips.
CID: Could be worse, I'm 47 and working here.
BILLY: I didn't mean any offense.
CID: It's cool. I just wish I wasn't $50,000 in debt for an astrophysics PhD.
BILLY: What gets you through the day?
CID: Mostly making Möbius strips from the curly fries.
