Or a kid just starting out with no resume of note yet and squarely in the lower-middle (i.e. low-net-tax-paying) class, such as yourself?
And on the secon note, yes, I am better than a person on food stamps. Better means "Of a more excellent or effective type or quality". Obviously, if I am not requiring public aid, I am more excellent and of a higher effective quality (employment wise) than the food stamp recipient. So are you. When did doing and being "better" become an unpardonable sin?
