Here's a personal Pet Peeve: Over-qualification is my middle name.
As an over-60 early retiree in a very specialized field, just about any job I apply for would be considered beneath my qualifications.
But all that education and experience doesn't put a single crust on my table, which is why I'm up at 3:00 AM teaching English to people overseas for 1/3 the wages I used to earn.
And yet... it's still better than working at WalMart. *shudder*
