Married to a beautiful lawyer and he's a loser?


Bollocks.

An accountant married to a lawyer. He sure did screw up in life lol...

He's "a loser" more because he was suppose to succeed big in his life, and you can't quite say that being an accountant (who struggles to get promotion) is a big success.

'You're saying that that's a real person...underneath?'

Accoutants have an average salary of around $65,000 a year..Some make upwards to a $100,000 a year.

Seems pretty good to me.

If you get out in the world you will see there are ppl with good paying jobs married to ppl with lower paying jobs :/ it happens

He's not a loser. He sees himself that way. Life can be a huge kick in the balls for a lot of people. He expected to do great things with his life and he was, by many peoples' standards. This is very common with a lot of jocks in high school. Their idea of success is having an "interesting" life. Not so much making good money.

depending on the job an accountant can make money comparable to "some" lawyers

lol i thought the same bs. cmon he could be a lot worse off

A good accountant can earn more than a good lawyer. His character doesn't seem to be extraordinarily successful but it's not like he's a bum either. His character seems disappointed that he didn't achieve the potential he thought he could.

It just goes to show you how delusional and out of touch with reality the writers are. They probably think that if you didn't become an NBA player or rapper, that you're a loser.

They want to make the CIA look so glamorous, but it's a terrible job. All it involves is basically spying on your own citizens and spying on other countries to make politicians and businessmen richer. There's a reason they don't want bright people in those fields.

He's also black, so they'd be promoting the hell out of him too.
