"Not doing more than the average is what keeps the average down."
-- Theodore Roosevelt
If your neighborhood is comprised of working people and you happen to be laid-off, without job you will worry about the mortgage of your house or your inability to pay realty tax.
If your neighborhood comprises of laborers and you found working to be exhausting and spent your life drinking then you wasted a lot of time.
If your neighborhood is composed of people drinking beer from morning till night and you are one of them, you just wasted all your opportunities and probably looking at people who have jobs sarcastically.
Instead of looking for a fight, look for a job that will feed your family and put your children to school for them to have a better life which you were unwilling to give.
