Eh 30-something surfer dude: why are you on food stamps? You’re clearly able-bodied, with a nice truck, board and shorts. Why this feeling of entitlement? Is it just because you can get it (after you’ve omitted the gift income from mom and dad and your cash-only gigs)? You think it’s great to get a free ride now so you can play at the beach or do yoga? But entitlement slowly smothers your soul. And when you’re still scamming at age 50, it won’t be cool, it will be sad. But maybe before that, Maui will spit you out like a watermelon seed.
