Don't trust everything you read. Not everything should be taken at face value. Sometimes the whole story can't be told. People change names and details to protect themselves and others. Sometimes things are just made up completely. This is most probably something that is completely made up. It may be true with just the names changed but I doubt it.
We don't know who wrote The American Dream. It showed up on some forums in multiple parts and has been copied to the web for posterity.
Not only is it a fun and diverting read but it could also be used as a slacker's manual on how to get and maintain a dream job.
Not that I'd take it as good advice. Just potentially useful.
