    The only reason I bother with this awful 'money' nonsense is because it buys pork products. You're taking the more direct route. :slayer:

    Have you tried networking? Having someone pass along your resume can help mitigate a low GPA.

    People once in a while ask me if I can do anything to help them get a job where I work and I feel useless. There is nothing employees can really do. HR yells at us if we try to contact them about an applicant. The best I can do for somebody is talk to the manager of the group they want to apply to if I happen to know them.

    Well, of course talking to HR doesn't work.

    The whole reason they are asking you is that they also don't want to go through HR. Getting your application in the hands of the manager that wants to hire them is key--the manager can usually skip through the HR shit for their own positions.

    That is impossible at my company. No way to avoid HR.

    One of us. Gobble gobble. One of us.



    Uggz make me sick just looking at them. Fucking sweatboxes for stinky feet.

    This is the 2000s, not the 1950s. Yuppies love locally owned green grocers. Italian Grandmas love Smart and Final.

    No idea what Smart and Final is.

    I love stores close by and/or on the way home from work that don't rob me. I thought over paying, i.e. Whole Paycheque, was an essential part of Yuppie-dom?

    They are beyond awful. Did you know that lots of girls wear them without socks? It's apparently the "thing." It also makes my stomach churn.

    I don't understand the appeal of Uggs, and am always amazed at the number of people who will wait in line in the rain and bitter cold to get into the store. :confused:

    One day this couple stopped me on the street and asked me if I knew where the Ugg store was. I was really tempted to say, "Do I look like I know where the Ugg store is?"

    I've always thought they were named Uggs because of the noise you make when you see them
