Ha ha, it’s funny because one of the most important real-world factors in accepting a job or deciding to pursue a career is the amount of wages you would receive from your employer in exchange for your labor — we’re not talking about volunteering, after all! — but Les has specifically forbidden his students from asking about it. It’s important to remember that in addition to being a smug creep and a terrible husband, Les is a pretty lousy teacher!
Sometimes you get so excited about the joke you thought up about “Ha ha, millennials are poor, probably because they’re lazy!” that you forget that millennials have no idea what a “checkbook” is.
