I have noticed that ESEs and LSEs claim that only physical work is "real work". From their point of view, computer programmers, translators, professors, writers, etc are a bunch of lazy cheaters who do not deserve to earn a wage. Some ESEs and LSEs have no skills whatsoever and have to deal with hours of drudgery: they label others as "lazy" instead of admitting their own lack of skills. Those with a special talent don't have to punish their own bodies; besides, mental work is exhausting too.
I have to say that I haven't dismissed The Innefable's idea that I am LIE: what I have described might be an attack on my supposed si polr...or my se role!
