This is the never ending problem in Haiti: We put a negative spin on EVERYTHING that can be productive for us. While it's good to have a "chemiz nan pantalon" job, but if you can "brase nan lari-a" to make a living, do so until you can put a "kol ak kravat" for work. And so we limit ourselves into situations we cannot control.

Because the guy in the "buro nan bank-lan", someone will have to hire him. But the "machann pistash" hires himself.
