Quote reads: “Oh, get a job? Just get a job? Why don’t I strap on my job helmet, and squeeze down into a job cannon and fire off into job land, where jobs grow on jobbies!”]
Sooo, like, do baby boomers just slap their hands over their ears whenever anyone brings up the economy or the current trend of jobs being difficult to find, or…?
And this is just rude on so many different levels. I wasn’t even complaining about my job. He asked me when I was getting off, I told him and mentioned that I was looking forward to it because my feet hurt. Like people with better jobs never have aching feet or look forward to the end of their work day? Eughhhhh. And I actually graduated from community college and am working on getting into the same expensive liberal arts college that my sister went to, because I need to hold onto some sort of hope that things can improve even if school didn’t help my sister much. So why is this guy assuming a cashier can’t be going to school?
And news flash, if everyone got better jobs, there’d be nobody to ring up items when people go shopping, or go to fast food places, etc
