loss of status

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I experienced the death of a teenage son, David, in close proximation to a time when my career as a food scientist was crashing. I was a father of David and a food scientist, and in tangled emotional darkness I came to reconcile with being the surviving father of David, and my profession status was new. I had to untangle who I am from the status I had achieved. One of the walk-away lessons was using less labels. I consider myself a University educated profession, and former food scientist. I do this without mentioning my University and I omit the companies I worked for. This omission of labels might seem minor, but during a job search labels are said and published relentlessly, so teaching myself to omit the labels required deliberate effort. All this preamble for one reason: Scott Pruitt is abusing the privileges of his job. In today’s news it’s been revealed he has an open-market-impossible screaming-great-deal place to rest when he’s in DC, and the living quarters are provided to him by a company who is regulated by his agency. What a dick. Pruitt accepted this favor . . . ¿Porque? . . because they ¿Like? him. What a fool. Pruitt is unable to separate himself from his status. Dear Señor Pruitt: You’re being a fool. The living quarters are not provided to you, because you’re likable or sexy. It’s the job you hold; it’s your status. Get it straight man. Sincerely, Tom Doody. I expect soon Pruitt will lose his job and the apartment that goes with it . . . . ciao Scott. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
