In the play I mentioned--the one with the Large Beautiful Heroine--another
of the characters is so over-educated that she can't be hired anywhere.  She
speaks four languages, has at least five college degrees undergrad and post,
and all she can do is...work as a telemarketer.  She has basically the same
experience with not being very pushy, and quits after almost ripping off a
poor old lady.  The scenes with the telemarketing are hilarious.
