The unemploymentality is a transformative state of mind that is the result of a sudden loss of job. Initial symptoms include spite and resentment towards the ubiquitous “economy.” People in these early stages can often be found at bars and Speakeasys, their heads hung low over a pint. Later stages of the unemploymentality are subtle as it adapts to the individual’s social, political and cultural environment.
You may not be able to identify someone with the unemploymentality until you ask, “So, what do you do for a living?” At which point the person may rant, answer with sarcasm or avoid the question altogether. But don’t count these people out. They’re a resilient bunch. The advantages of the unemploymentality are countless hours that are often devoted to personal expression and creativity, once job boards and Craigslist have been exhausted for the day.
