You are your job? That's sad.

I've never understood people who base their entire identity in their job. It seems the equivalent of me saying that my entire identity is being K's girlfriend, or being a cat-owner. Like this guy, who can't figure out that there might be other things in the world that he can do besides work that would make him happy. I've known other guys who work 70+ hour weeks. Their family life suffers, their health suffers, and if they lose that job, they have nothing else with which to define themselves.

I just don't get it.
