Adam Carrolla said it best…
As many people may or may not know, I am a huge talk radio podcast junkie. I listen to tons of them; comedic, serious, genre specific- really doesn’t matter. So today I am listening to the latest and greatest from the Adam Carrolla Podcast (quite entertaining I might add) and they started talking about how people complain about how they get paid for essentially sitting around and doing nothing. Adam took umbrage with this (there’s my 50 cent word for the day mom!) and gave the following reply which I thought was pure genius.
“this is a delayed payday for all the years that I went out and swung a hammer, and then at night went to the groundling classes and paid for that(myself). Went to the acme theater where it cost me 3o bucks a month to be in Acme, …I didn’t have car insurance because I couldn’t afford it. All the freebies, all the late nights sitting around a diner, writing sketches for shows that no one would attend, that wouldn’t get me paid, that amounted to nothing. I am being paid back for that.”
So, the next time somebody asks you why you get paid so much for sitting around doing nothing, send them on over to uncle Adam’s podcast. I’m sure they would find it enlightening!
