You know those days, when you wake up and just wonder… “Why?”
- “Why do I need to get out of bed today?” - “I don’t like my job, why do I have to spend the time/effort to get up and get dressed, only to go sit in a cubicle for 8 hours?”

So, I'm tired of hearing this over and over again. You have these people who, just because they came out of a long-term marriage or relationship, think they have the right to judge a person who's single and over 30, or 40 for that matter.
