Now here is some food for thought.
Imagine going from Wall Street to working at a national chain waffle house. Those are quite the two different places, lifestyles and cultures filled with people who are as different as night and day. If this happened to you, Drake would just be shaking his head. It is even more of a travesty than it is a triumph to go from the top and head to the bottom than it is to go from the bottom to the top.
So, started from the top and now we're here? Drake would shake your head at you. But, is it really the worst thing in the world to be in a spot in your life where you are at the pinnacle of success, sitting in an iron throne on top of the world to falling to become a measly peasant?
The logline of Netflix states:
"Shaken in his role in the 2008 financial crisis and desperate for a job, an ex-hedgefund manager joins the workforce as a server at a diner."
The best part of all of this is that it is all based on a true story, based on a memoir written by the real life, Jimmy Adams. That is my favorite part about the movie because it is non-fictional and it isn't something that a screenwriter came up with.
Losing a job that you were so accustomed to is very difficult. Then trying to find something new takes substantial amounts of courage. Jimmy finds a new dream, a new outlook on life through his job at the waffle house.
What I learned the most from this film is that in life, you need to play the cards that are dealt. No matter what they are, you need to make the best of the situation with a good attitude because if you don't, then you will not be very happy in this lifetime.
Remember, "The Zos Knows".
