Re: "I'm sorry but you don't get to gripe about it later."
"Er, yes, you absolutely do get to gripe about it - how you were coerced into doing something you really didn't want to do simply just to work in the career of your choice. Some of us just fill out an application form and go through interviews. "
It's a choice that the skilled don't need to make. The unskilled, people who would never have a career in that line, are the ones faced with a choice. You aren't forced to say yes; but note if you say no that you'll have to stand on your own merit. Clearly that's not always enough, as can be evidenced in pretty much every complainants early career: the clear lack of ability is easy to see. But, instead of learning the ropes, coming up through other means where by they can learn the skills they lack, they CHOSE the easy alternative.
It's exactly the same when some pretty girl flirts with you for a free beer. They don't have money to spend on getting drunk, so they flap their assets. Same in a casino when someone is winning big: all the girls come around.
Don't try make out as though there was no beneficial return here. Damn, if I had lady parts myself I'd be making a play at becoming a high paid movie star, and no problem using those ass...ets... to get it.
