Somebody Hire This Man

SCENE: Jimmy is perusing today's listings on the usual suspects: CareerBuilder, Monster, the Department of Employment Insecurity, etc.

JIMMY: People who stay unemployed for six months or longer, how do they stand it? I'm going crazy.
ME: Oh really?
JIMMY: Don't get me wrong, I like being home, I like seeing you more and doing stuff around the house.
ME: Oh, then I've got more chores for you...
JIMMY: *ignores* But sometimes I just want to get out of the house and see other people!
ME: See other people?
JIMMY: Yes! I'm going stir-craz...
ME: *interrupts* Because I think seeing other people is a longer and far more serious conversation than this.
JIMMY: ... You know what I mean, woman!
