Daniel: Oh you know... Doing the career thing. (Usually means giving up your soul and putting up with a tyrants bullshit just to pay rent because things were never handed to you for free...)
The majority of humans hate their careers, and up dying miserable. But hey, at least they paid off their mortgage.
Also, a pretentious way of saying "job".
1. A long period of servitude in exchange for operating capital and the promise of financial security and much needed health care coverage on release; golden handcuffs.
2. The mistakenly desired outcome of 16+ years of education.
3. An affliction whose symptoms are loss of life & liberty, general purpose misery, and resentment towards those who are unaffected.
4. A euphemism for 'professional labour camp'; these 'camps' are required to support capitalism's unsustainable drive for never ending growth.
- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
