    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I have a few friends that worked at a sub place. Sure they make it in front of you, but you don't know where the stuff in front of you has been; such as, the floor, etc.

    Not to mention, as RoD said, where their fingers have been. But then again, they wear gloves now. But you don't know where the gloves have been.

    yeah, job market sux right now; especially for IT. I graduated from USC (University of Southern California) with a degree in CS in May and I still haven't found a job yet. In fact after submitting 50+ resumes to various IT "entry-level" positions, i only got one stinking interview. My current job has nothing to do with programming, it's more of a business-related position. As of now I'm ditching the whole idea of being a programmer and getting into the business/corporate world instead. Damn, what a wonderful time to get a CS degree. If i was only born like 10 years earlier...

I wanted to eviscerate you and feed your entrails to the next customer. And I wanted to overcharge him and pocket the difference. Damn it, I wish I had. Anyway, I won't work another fast food job. It's intellectual suicide. I'm sorry, Mrs. Boss Lady, but "at" is a preposition, and it does not go at the end of the sentence. Oh, and yes, I AM sure that 12*2 is 24, and NO, I don't need a calculator to figure out the value of the coupon, it's subtraction. I know that you dropped out of high school, but some people aren't f'ing morons, have more than three teeth, don't smoke 12 packs a day, and can actually do basic math in their head. You, on the other hand, can not use a calculator correctly. I had to show you how. Remember that? Oh yeah, I'm not getting a raise - or your job - even though I already do it for you.

    I applied at Borders (a bookstore) last week. They said they were hiring. I was fully qualified. Not that the qualifications for being a cashier are rigorous or anything, but if they'd asked, they would have realized that I could have added up the totals without the register to help me. You know, incase the power went out while they were selling Harry Potter books or something. They didn't call me for an interview. Hell, I went in and asked for one. No luck. What the heck? I even know my alphabet - I could put the books in the right order on the shelf. They wouldn't have to train me. They would barely have to pay me.

    I don't even want a job. There are so many books that I want to read, so much that I want to learn. I could spend all summer doing that, easily. But I need a car. I need to go to college. I need pizza while I'm in college. Ergo, I need money. I need a lot of money, and I'm willing to work like a dog to get it. Just...not fast food. Even manual labor is better than that, and I don't exactly have the best back.
    I know that exact feeling. My first job was when I was 14, I was waitressing stuff to people. My second Job was warehouse work until I was 16. Then I went to cashier at a fast food joint, then I went back to the warehouse (my back is kinda messed now, lifing 40-50kg boxes over and over hurts), and now I'm a dishwasher for weddings. Life sucks. Anyways, I shall study my ass off this summer to get my A+, and im pretty sure I can get a job in Calgary with computers. Getting a job here is easy(approx. 2 days to get one), getting a good job is more difficult.

    Also, I refuse to work @ any warehouses due to the amount of carbon monoxide that builds up from fork lifts. It's bad and it makes me very very sick.

    Every job interview is the same.
    "So, what is your sexual orientation?"
    "Erm... i'm a homosexual."
    "Sir, i'm going to have to ask you to leave."

    howdy,
    Seriously? you look bad, you speak poorly, your afraid of your own shadow, you don't follow up after an interview and you still Can't figure out why you are unemployed??

    just head on down to the welfare office they'll take right good care of you.

    >> I said their reasons were stupid

    From whose point of view? From yours, I can see why it seems stupid. From theirs, it makes perfect sense to hire someone else. As they are the employer, it is their point of view which counts.

    Blah, blah, blah. Thanks for... the most pointless reply ever made.

    Obviously it's from my point of view, I'm the person who wrote
    it.

    It doesn't make perfect sense to hire someone else. Even from
    an employer's point of view, the reasons are still lame. Yeah,
    it makes more sense to hire someone who laughs at stupid
    jokes (fun, energetic, and outgoing are all synonyms for ditz)
    than someone who can actually do a good job. Brilliant, homie...
    (everything after "still lame" was sarcasm.)


    howdy,
    that would be gainfully employed yokel to you.
    Okay, you're a gainfully employed bumpkin. Score, dude! You
    really showed me.
