Jason had the opportunity to join a carpentry apprenticeship program when he was a teenager, but he chose to hang out with lowlifes who did drugs instead. As if doing drugs wasn’t bad enough, Jas
on missed out on his only opportunity that was presented to him. By the time he turned his life around, he was in no state of mind to create his own opportunities. If Jason had worked hard enough and had enough determination, then sure he could have had a career. But he chose instead to take low-level custodial jobs at places, because he has no skills. Now he’s almost 50 and still works as a janitor. He spent the night in jail once, so that’s permanently on his record too.
Not only is it too late for Jason to start a new career, but he also has a house that was built in the 70s and is always falling apart. If Jason had just avoided all the bad apples when he was a kid, then he could have done something with his life outside of custodial work. That’s not to say his whole life was a waste, it just means that he had so much more opportunity and he didn’t take it. After all, he has his freedom. That’s all that he needs. I’ll take up the mantle for him and make great life decisions, that way I get to enjoy at least 60 more years of it.
