The irony will make you laugh!

DH and Jim got a game for the computer (with Jim's money), "The Sims Deluxe Edition". It's kind of a role-playing game. You create a character, the computer gets you going, and then you kind of vicariously live a "different" life through this character. And the computer imposes the consequences of whatever actions you take, so things might not end up the way you thought they would. They installed it, and DH played it for several hours before I got home.

He told me about his character, which he named "Chuck Wagon" (rolling my eyes)....and then he told me this:

"He's always so depressed!!! I don't know what to do!!! All he does is sit on the couch and cry about how depressed he is. Then he complains about how he can't find a job because he's so depressed. But he really has to find a way to get motivated to find a job, so he can better his situation and get rid of the depression. But he can't, so he sits on the couch, eats cookies, and cries. Then he goes to the bathroom, and comes back and does it all over again!!! I am so frustrated and it's so boring!!!"

I started laughing out loud. He told me to shut up. I don't think he saw the parallel until I started laughing.

Oh..... yes.... I am laughing.

I cannot believe he didn't see the irony in that!
