Human: "I got a job at McDonald's so I could write about it."
Me: Laughs in a pretty detached way.
Human: "It's like,'performance art' or whatever."
Wow, that's awesome. You're definitely being "ironic" and not working at a shit job because of your professional and social incompetence. Scoffing at the "real" misfortune of others trying to support themselves, and possibly their children/ drug habits as your own personal, condescending art project is hilarious, not to mention novel. Definitely not "disgusting." Good job.
