The show centered around some families where the professional dads had lost their awesome jobs and couldn't find new ones. Well, couldn't find new ones in the exact place they wanted. They didn't want to relocate, so they weren't looking anywhere else. OMG WHAT? You want us to....move? But we like this gated community!
So they were living off their savings. This was spoken about as though they were living off the blood of sacrificed infants. Oh Good Heavens! NOT THE SAVINGS!!! Isn't that what savings is for? Maybe I'm wrong about that. One particularly touching part showed a man who had been forced to take a regular people job, at (horror of all ungodly horrors) Sears. He tearfully told the camera that when old colleagues who were still in the Professional Asshole Association or wherever he had worked came in to buy whatever the hell they sell at Sears he would hide so they did not see his shame. Literally, he would hide.
I don't know where I'm going with this. I guess just...holy shit we are spoiled in America.
