    Saru, your ideas are dumb especially when it comes to boxing and MMA.

    To be fair, those are both things that I do not really care about that much.


    I mean, Einstien didn't really care about war, and look what happened.

    man no job sucks like GameStop. Its the company of broken promises. I mean, the ones up here are ok because the managers arn't too shitty. but when I worked at the ones in southern Indiana. Oh boy.

    OH BOY.

    Ask WAM about Al Moorley.

    I think I might actually prefer licking asshole to working at gamestop.

    Yeah, 7 years. Started as a GA, worked my way to management, was in line for an assistant then left for Southern Indiana for college. Started at a new GS, got up to management, was in line for assistant, then got passed up. Repeat last step 3 times. Then quit before I was fired for uncovering unlawful activites done by former store manager and district manager.

    Now i'm back at the one I started at. And its ok because I work at a movie theater as a projectionist 40 hours a week so I only work at GameStop once a month. Get the discount, and only 5 hours of terror a month. Plus I actully make money now.

    SEVEN YEARS?

    Jesus, man. How do you get up in the morning?

    At least you're making money.

    every time some parent bring their kid in and is like "OH BILLY THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT JOB FOR YOU" I kind want to say "only if he hates getting paid and loves getting yelled at by brats, fanboys, and stupid soccer moms all day" but I doubt my boss would approve.

    A game stop opened up like less a mile from my house. Walking distance. And I was about to get fired from my job. So after we went there so I could buy NCAA Football 09, my mom goes "are you guys hiring?" And I'm like oh God no. But the guy was like no we're fully staffed.

    It's probably true that Gamestop blows. But it can't honestly be all that bad, right? At least (1) you get paid and (2) it ends when you clock-out. I worked some pretty shitty jobs in my youth and, to be honest, all of them were, inter alia, both less stressful and more [short-term?] financially rewarding than school.

    I hated signing on so much. The people behind the desk always looked at you like you were scum. But I was all. Well fuck you, the government have taxed the shit out of me for years. Im taking advantage while out of work.
