    Even if the unemployment rate is realistically as high 15%, that still means 85% of us are doing something with our lives.....

    Are you proud of what you do for shelter and bread?

    I know... there are different kinds of pride. The pride I take right now in life is that of accomplishing a hard days work. The task I spend 40 hours of my life per week sweatin' over so that I have the time and resources to feed my habits is that of a modern clerk. Not much glamor... I help people with paperwork. I work for a huge organization, I'm busy as hell, and most of the time I feel like I really do help folks, so yeah, I'm proud of what I produce in America. You?

    Go to the grocery store? Why would I be proud of that?

    When I worked I never had a job I was ashamed of or that I felt negatively impacted my country or society.

    I go to the store for bread.

    I'm indifferent to that action, taking neither pride nor derission in it.

    you grocery store people stole my thoughts! to actually answer the question, yes, I am. it took about 3 years of no social life and 12 hours a day of studying to get where I am and the rewards its brought to me, our clients, and the other people in our small company are pretty awesome.

    Generally speaking, I'm proud of the loaves I bake...

    ...I do make homemade bread, once or twice a month.
