    Of course when you watch one it suggests more, but I've never heard of this. Why are we supposed to care? Most of them sound spoiled, lazy, and entitled. Some even sound too stupid to figure the job out.

    I'm fascinated with how people, mostly millenials it seems, but people of all ages, have "channels" that appear to consist of nothing but filling in strangers (some will have 100,000 subscribers) about the day to day goings on of their lives. They're wacky enough, but I'm wondering who all the people who subscribe are and why they are watching it. Reminds me of "The Truman Show".

    The difference I see today is that one used to be a little embarassed about failing at a job, even if it was just failing to properly assess one's prospects there and size up the work environment before taking the job. And oddly, most of them quit w/o first having another job. That tells me these are not people relying on wages to support themselves, which is again a somewhat new thing. At age 22 I was running a $1M small business. Some of these posts are from people older than that and they seem to have a hard time hacking cashier jobs.

    I feel it is a form of mass delusion, and so is an interesting thing to observe.

    They want the attention for their uselessness that others get for their excellence.

    At least we here at Dawgs' have the decency to mock and humiliate those who share their life's problems.

    Hey, it's sooooo easy now to show up at work, smoke these millennials, and walk away with all the goodies.
