That is a sad dream. Not a put down on you specifically but more on American society (and not claiming that this is an American phenomena only, just that it is the only society I really know).


Of all the things that is possible for a person to do, to have a dream that only aspires for one to have a stable job with good benefits and to be able to buy stuff is really lame.

Stability can be an incredible thing in a world where instability reigns supreme. Oh snap.

Just some examples of what I'm doing to find a job.

Apply at McDonald's: Overqualified/Commute that essentially erodes any earnings and no nearby living quarters to reduce commuting losses.

Apply for job at American Airlines (before Ch. 11 stuff) washing airplanes: No response.

Entry level management position at American Airlines (before Ch. 11): You need 10 years experience.

I get that money is tight for airlines right now, but when your CEO gets a raise amidst layoffs, a hiring freeze, and now Ch. 11 bankruptcy protection...

Meanwhile, all I see, hear, and read about are a bunch of fucking idiots that just don't want to STFU and get shit done: the OWS people, politicians (what exactly do they have to do with it other than the regulations that they keep spamming?), and the corporations. There's just too many stupid mother fuckers whining to hear me say, "Hey, what do you need done that I can actually do and have some sense of pride left so I can earn some fucking money here?"

Applied to four others that were reasonable (commute, can actually do, build experience from it if I read the job titleese correctly). Otherwise, it's time to start spamming Wal-Mart, Pizza Hut, McDonald's as soon as I determine how to meet my needs with that level of income.
