Talking Dictionary 633. Born To Lose


633. "You're such a loser," she said. "Look at you. You're white. You were born in America. Your native language is English. You've even got a graduate degree. You've got all the ingredients for success. But you have nothing. You have the tiniest pension. You're not even collecting Social Security, because you're going to wait until you're 70. Ooh, that's going to be a lot of money—what, maybe $1,000 a month? Look at all the successful white guys that are your age—George Bush, Bill Clinton. But not you. You have a little part‐time job. You're always applying to agencies for extra work, and they're always ignoring you. What happened to you?" He said, "I don't know. I made a lot of bad choices. Now I have to live with them." She said, "Yes, I made a bad choice too—marrying you. But I don't have to live with it." 3.1
