Practicality of Education


Before you think this is just another zany plot line, there are many people out there with PhDs working fast food places like Chickentopia. Why? I’m not 100% sure. Sometimes they simply can’t find a job, anywhere. Others can’t find a job in the right location or at the right school they want. Still, they’re not alone. You’d be surprised at the percent of waiters who are college graduates. Or maybe not.

BILLY: After all that studying, Chickentopia ends up with you as an employee?
CID: Pretty much, and don't use dangling participles. I also have a PhD in English.

BILLY: You're $50,000 in debt from an astrophysics PhD and working fast food, and you go back for a second degree?

CID: Yeah, in hindsight I should have started with my third PhD in applied logic.
