Is there such a thing as an entry-level job that doesn't suck?

This, 100%. My parents and sister and I were talking about ADHD recently and how diagnosis are becoming so frequent its an "epidemic." My sister said that my nephew only has recess once a day and gym class once a week. If the weather is bad, they don't even get recesa, they sit in the classroom and play heads up seven up. When I was a kid, 3 recesses a day and gym 3 days a week. If you take 7 year old kids and put them in a room and say "sit for basically 8 hrs straight" of COURSE they're going to have behavioral problems.

Then I mentioned that it isn't even only at school. Parents these days are so afraid to let their kids out of sight. And no blame here on the parents, I think they're 100% right to be scared, as sad as it is. But the "bye mom I'm gonna ride my bike and get into unsupervised hijinks with the neighborhood kids" "oh okay honey make sure you're home by dark" days of my childhood are over. No physical outlet for energy at school + no physical outlet for energy at home = pent up energy. It's understandable.

Btw, stitch, very glad the kids are okay. Couldnt evenIimagine the feeling.

i agree with the spoilered part 100%. i f i wasnt so paranoid of whats out there id be happy to let my kids roam like i did as a kid. we do have a baller swingset though, and the neighbors have a trampoline, and my kids do love being outside (totally thank my wife for instilling that in them) so they get plenty of outside time and excersize. and the thing is, had they told us where they were going, it would have been fine. my daughter is old enough to walk over there, and i would have expected that excursion to take an hour +. it was the not knowing and them not being back when expected that was so scary.

and thank you very much, ksilk, appreciate the kind words. i hope you never have to experience that in your life, buddy.

One of those days at work where everything that could go wrong went wrong. There's nothing worse than doing an assignment that should take 3 days in about 6 hours. Pretty sure I have an ulcer.

I know this is the things that are pissing you off thread but stop being so goddamn whiny. I take it you're recently graduated and working a "consulting" job? There are worse positions you could be in. Fuck.

WTF? Am I not allowed to bitch about the stresses of my job?

Edit: Oh yeah, you're the guy who said something stupid about the magnitude of the bombs in Boston and I said your comment was stupid. I can see why you're peeved at me. Lulz.

So easy to read people sometimes.

Fucking commercials on Youtube. Around 70% of my videos are prefaced by them now. 30 second spots are no longer skippable after a few seconds. I don't want to have to watch a 30 second commercial for a 1 minute clip. Is it this bad in other regions?

 

EDIT: Just had another 30 second commercial for a 39 second clip. I realize Youtube has us by the balls...it doesn't have any viable competitor at the moment, but seriously. Fuck.

Nah, you hadn't forgotten.

Now excuse me while I go back to work.

You should consider the reality that you are irritating. It will take you farther than brushing everything off as the other person's problem.

To put it in perspective, you're also whiney. So, you should be the last person putting their foot down to prevent someone from venting.

I have to wake up super early for work tomorrow. My job requires me to write reviews of the teaching of people below me in the hierarchy; tomorrow I have to observe an 8 am class. (I live about 45 minutes from my place of work.) What makes it even less pleasant is that I often end up having to write letters that are pretty critical. I don't take any joy in doing that.
