Great. So I get to take a bus downtown during rush hour, so I can listen to some bureaucrat wax orgasmic over the exciting career options available in the world of burger-flipping, or possibly clerical work. And if I don't take whatever shit job they drop me into they cancel my unemployment benefits.
