    still hoping that TigerDirect calls me at the end of the week and offers me the corporate sales position, which is much more of a real job

    but as an emergency fallback, it ain't bad
    Wait, you gave up a job selling Armani clothes in an Armani store for one pushing Amexes in an airport kiosk?

    i really, really would rather work for tigerdirect

    makin' 35-40k a year doing corporate sales and marketing

    and i have a very good chance of getting that job, already did the interview and nailed it to the wall

    but they're hiring a batch of people at once so they are going to do interviews all this week and then decide

    that said, i figure i am a shoe-in

    i'll found out tomorrow, most likely, given that friday is a stat holiday

    but i wanted this other thing as a back-up in case

    unemployment is killing me

    If I made you feel such, it was unintentional.

    It's just not something I would ever do (due to the way I have been taught to cook) and I kinda wanted to know why it's so common in the US.

    The US as a culture is very fast paced, I was raised to cook as a way of delivering food for consumption. A means to an end. Kind of like you drive to get to work, I cook to get to food. So from what I've seen a lot of american recipes use short cuts to make a meal easier for the preparer to get it to their family.

    Personally I rarely make a meal on a m-thu night that would take longer than 30 minutes from bang to bullets.

    For what it's worth, neither do we.

    no

    because you see, i wasn't actually selling Armani, they had told me in the interview i was going to be sales but when i had showed up to work there they told me i was going in the stockroom instead

    which is high schooler work, so i quit, largely because i don't really want to work for a place that lied to me in order for me to accept the job. it was shit pay and shit hours with a store that jerked me around.

    sorta sets a bad precedent, you know?

    but now, many months later, i'm at a point where i am okay with doing a shitty job for a little while just to earn some money for a bit.

    it's a back-up plan, nothing more.

    Don't feel bad about not being able to tell the difference between wines, because even fancy sommeliers can't. They did a test where they split a regular bottle of wine, half in a bottle marked up as some fancy vintage, the other half in a bottle marked as just crap table wine, then blind taste tested it with a bunch of wine snobs. The "fancy" bottle got rave reviews, the "crap" bottle got panned. But they were both exactly the same wine.

    I mostly do "zero to mouth" optimized food when I cook because I tend to go "oops, I'm hungry" and want to eat ASAP, but every now and then I take my sweet time and make a proper dinner that might take two hours to cook.
