post #92506 of 109053

everyone's going off the rail again

post #92507 of 109053
Moo, tell me what I should do. I work a dead-end job full time, while also applying for better stuff once every three days, but after doing this for a year the only offers I've received are for unpaid internships, of which I've taken three my GPA is very good, I graduated from a good university, I have internship experience and while interning I've worked 60+ Hours/ week. I don't think it qualifies as laziness. It does, however, qualify as a shit economy.

As for "everyone can move up" you go to a school in southeast DC and tell me that everyone can move up. Third graders who can't read, teachers who try to strangle students and can't be replaced because no one else is willing to teach the class, but I'm sure they can overcome years of absolutely failed education if they just try. Yes, I worked in the school I'm talking about and it was sad that I could even help. I should have been useless, and would have been at the school I attended. Because one was funded by middle class families, and one wasn't.

If I learned anything it's that you should do stupid/illegal stuff when you're young and just get the record sealed. Or turn it into a sob story for your college application essay.

Wait, what? I was simply stating that the kids g tran was talking about, who didn't make it, probably had as much to do with it as their parents. I'm not saying kids who make bad decisions never make it - where are you getting that? I even gave an example of someone I personally know who made terrible decisions and is now quite successful.

I think it's around a three month wait right now. Possibly a bit longer. I ordered a pair in the summer last year, and one boot had an issue I hadn't noticed for the first few months. They fixed it for free - one person in the shop was cool about it, the other was a bit of a dick. Kinda weird. 

 

Can't say I had the best experience, but I still ordered another pair lol. I'm not really sure if I notice their weight. Even if they are heavy, I don't think it's a big deal given the style of boot, but what do I know. 

 

They are $500 right now FYI, but I paid $375 for both pairs. Really like the boots, but not so sure about the people who work there TBH. 

 

I didn't tip them, BTW. To stay on topic.

What field are you in? Are you tied down to your area?

If you are referring to me... you are off base. I'm not going to defend my life and what I had/chose to do, but if you want to chat PM me. smile.gif

I believe waiters actually earn a living wage there. Also, not interested in those nonnative pants I offered you!?!??

Shiiiiit.... sorry, I saw the PM and forgot to reply. Got pics/link? smile.gif

So how do you guys feel about tipping at places like hotpot and korean bbq? Especially buffet style hotpot and korean bbq. I mean, if I'm gonna get my own food and cook it, I think the restaurant should tip me at the end of my meal.

BTW, Moo et al, you do realize that you're all arguing about the noise in the dataset that KJ presented? Yes, we can all think of individual examples of the income of children deviating from that of their parents, but it doesn't change the fact that they represent a drop in the ocean of data that make up the data that drive the overall trend.

Moo, I am completely un-tied-down. I've applied to jobs in almost every major city in the U.S. I graduated with a degree in politic science, and while it's not cs, it's not art either. But my point is that there are people in dead end jobs who do not want to be there, who are putting in effort to leave, and the idea that they shouldn't be able to pay rent because their job isn't "valuable" or skilled is bullshit. Everyone should be making a living wage, and if everyone did we would literally all be better off.

That is tough but why are you buying super expensive clothes then man? I dont doubt your story but that seems like imprudent decision making.

Also what was your undergrad major/school/gpa. A lot of time people say good they mean not even top 20 and a 3.5 when the average is an inflated 3.43. I don't believe grades necessarily mean you are smarter or more capable but other than actually showing skill in the field there isnt much else to go by (altho cool article recently about how google does hiring). For residencies they tend to use score cut offs because even among high scorers, there are more applicants than spots so they can set that cut off and still find enough capable people who will be successful. Like I have 0 shot at certain schools because they only take 2 residents and they can limit it to top 5-10% of test takers and still be choosy.
