    I agree, aside from the crying at the funeral part.

    You can't change what's already in the will, so why cry about it?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    So you won't seem like your rubbing it in. People already know you did it for the money. Crying just softens the blow to the people that was their for his/her entire life.

    I been unemployed for a month now, just got out of the military after 8 years. I'm going to college but i can't seem to find a part time job to save my life. No wonder people are sucked back into the military after they get out and why recruiting is in a all time high.

    I just went and got the local paper. Last time I looked in the classified section (about 3 yrs ago) there were about two pages of misc jobs presented. Today there was one column.

    Good time to be in school is what I decided. Bad time to be in any economy supply and demand based industry, such as hair stylist.

    Are my jokes that terrible or is this board filled with aspies?

    Sheesh.

    I don't have any compassion left. I don't care if they have a family. I don't care if they need it more. I don't care if they deserve it more. I am tired of sitting here, trapped in a situation where I can only spend money and not make it. Where I can't gather the resources I supposedly need to get one in the first place. I do not want to sit here and accomplish nothing for the next few years.

    I am out of patience, and would advocate any solution, no matter how bloody or cruel. I am no longer willing to accept this state of affairs.
    Ah, so your solution is that the people who actually know what they're doing should be the ones to leave. Interesting perspective...

    Its irritating working for people that never had lives growing up.


    Rant over.

    I have also had trouble finding a different related job in my area. Not quite in the same category, since I do have a job...but, yeah, it's tough.

    My problem? Lack of Experience/Education, lol. I work with Ph.D.s and people with 20-30 years experience.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Well, it's the solution to MY problem, anyway.

    Because as long as there are so many people more qualified than me, I can't get a job. Not even a fast food job.

    I mean, I feel that way on one level... but It's easy to wish something like that on faceless, generic people you don't know. I wouldn't be able to say that if I actually knew them.

    The really sad thing is that we're probably all "the cream of the crop" from wherever we all are, and the situation is still this horrible.
