Your Job’s A Joke, You’re Broke

at

If pre-millenium sitcom Friends was set in Dublin.

No wait, come back.

Via WaterfordWhispersNews:

Phoebe’s career as a masseuse would see her working in ‘massage parlor’ run by the Kinahans. She would emigrate to Australia at some point.

After returning from Canada Monica’s career as a chef would suffer greatly after a petty review from Lovin’ Waterford accused her restaurant of killing 400 children with an undercooked omelette. It later emerges that the reviewer was just bitter after failing to get Monica’s number despite persistent nagging, however the damage was done and Monica’s restaurant closed down.

Joey would be living on the streets after years of being asked to work for free on low budget acting projects in order to get his name out there.

Chandler
would work for a ‘letterbox company’ based at an address in Grand Canal after a few miserable years in London doing cocaine. Since the letterbox company is just a front for a multinational company to pay fuck all tax Chandler would do no actual work and have to spend his days lying to the gang about what he’s been up to all day. Hilarious japes would ensue.

Ross would have been forced to change careers and retrain as an accountant after failing to find a job in academia.

Rachel
, having never fully recovered from working under the stress of a zero hours contract in her local cafe and several years of unemployment, would actually get a pretty class job in Penneys as a buyer. The gang never talk about that one trip to Britain, she took on the ferry.

In fairness.

    Central Perk would be a bar, and it would be in Lucan, where they’d all be living in one rented house full of damp.

        You laugh now, Bertie. Wait until your young one’s boyfriend is hogging your TV so he can watch Man City.

          I’ve got 3 boys so it’d be something along the lines of….

          Dad, I’m gay

          “That’s okay son, I’m happy for you to be whatever makes you happy”

          And my boyfriend is a Man City fan

          “get the fupp out of my house”

    “Despite staying regular customers, the gang were marginalised and made to feel unwelcome for not being artists or high powered app developers.”

    “Ross would become a frequently toxic and ever present influence in Journal.ie comment sections.”

    Joey, after not getting any acting work would try his luck on celebrity masterchef after which he would write a book of recipes and promote it on the late late show or Darcy ..whichever had a slot available.
    Rachel after falling out with her previously popular former band member lover, would start dating other z listers and get a tv slot with a show ‘all about me’ write a book and promote it on the late late show or Darcy ..whichever had a slot available.

    others would have emigrated and featured in an RTE or TV3 show, whichever was available, about the lost generation who had to emigrate.
