@EvanDeSimone I knew I'd get backlash from most people on this site, thus my "really, truly want a job" comment. If you truly want to work, you do what you need to do, even if that means moving away from friends and family and taking a bus with one suitcase in hand. Plenty of jobs in Texas with super cheap rent. You could go to Alaska and have a nice job next week. I have 4 friends who've done this (Fairbanks and anchorage). Re ND, yes, hard to find a place to live, but even a waitress makes $800/day. And if the sh*t came down for me financially, I'd get in a car, drive there, sleep in my car and shower at the gym. But then, I'm old school and worked 3 jobs while at uni studying....STEM.
@aproprose I suggest a new Econ, non admin job search no matter what. Find a more appropriate job and leave.
If you really, truly, want a job, there's jobs out there. My Safeway is having a hard time finding workers cuz no one really wants to work, which means cleaning up the eggs that someone dropped, coming to work when you are supposed to...on time and mentally clear to work.... Jobs are there in your hometown, OR go to where the jobs are. Texas, Alaska, N Dakota. If you're an adult working fast food, it's your own fault.
@Derbel McDillet Who wears a bra when out with nature? Rejoice!
@andnowlights So...did you die?
The hairdresser charges that because...she can. It obviously hasn't turned her #1 client away.
Guess I'm showing my age (and investment account heftiness) that I'm saddened that she blew 85% on food and drink. And that other 15%? That is why I early retired at age 45. Invest in oil and gas stocks.
@Meaghano I have a free coupon for one of these, but haven't used it cuz I've never heard of them before. Now I'll try the green one. Thanks for the tip.
@gyip I too get FREE sbux drinks and want to order something more expensive, but not a big coffee person (my usual is green tea lemonade). I suggest a reg or skinny peppermint mocha latte. Those are very tasty...and pricey.
Suggestion: next time you are at an impasse in some negotiation, ASK the other person what they want. So that you know where they are coming from, and then can negotiate back.
