Bushie, being an adult is complicated. Solutions are not simple or guaranteed. Deal with it.

20 out of 27 is not always. Always has a specific meaning. Perhaps the word you were going for is usually?

I have zero actual knowledge of the CADD industry, but from the way Bushie describes things, it seems standard to hire just about anybody temporarily on a 3 month trial. It doesn't sound like a usual job hire, where they make damn sure you're the right person before they offer you the job. I can see the advantages of doing things this way. It's not so crazy. And it's nice that it offers more people a chance to get a foot in the door than might be the case otherwise. Problem is, the Bushie family have a 1957 perspective on it, where "you're hired" means something very different than what is really the case. Bushie, they've allowed you an audition. Nothing more. Don't screw it up.

On the plus side, he should be fired from the job in plenty of time to Focus on Christmas full time.

It is so much easier and so much more fun to focus on Christmas when you have a job.  The 3 months won't end until February 1.
You didn't last the full 3 months at your last job. I stand by my statement. Prove me wrong.

Not what you asked but Newtie resigned after the 1998 election, in which the GOP retained control of the House.

It is a pretty ironic instance of history though, given that the Act was drawn up by what would've been the moderate hero Democrats of that era to "defuse" the slavery debate.  Really, it is a good example of how in some situations being the most moderate person possible can backfire dramatically.

If I don't make $20/hour, why should he?

This.

I got a freaking BACHELOR'S degree and work full time at an office and I don't make that much money.  Why the hell should Bushie?
Bushie also has a  BACHELOR'S degree. Degrees are a dime a dozen these days.

I wouldn't hire him for minimum wage. There are plenty of high school kids who would do a far better job.

FWIW, I know a woman who has been delivering pizzas for the same store for over 20 years now. You could be that woman, Bushie. You'd never have to worry about trying to push yourself up that ladder. It could be just you, your car, and the pepperonis.

Christianity is taken seriously because there are over 1 billion Christians in the world. Nobody who isn't a Christian takes Christianity seriously except in the sense of realpolitik.

Bushie, you've landed more jobs than anybody I know in the real world. Finding a job is not really your problem.

Sure, I have bad luck on the job search... (I am a supply preacher).
1. Luck is not the issue. You've made monumentally bad choices regarding your employment status.

Let me just say, I don't have all the answers, either, and I do value your advice, but I value constructive advice, not posts that attack my abilities.

See, you don't understand what constructive advice is. All of the advice here has been constructive. What you are looking for is for us to blindly cheer you on as you walk towards another dead end like your family/friends do when we know how it will end. You have strengths and you have weaknesses. We all do. "Thinking" about things harder or focusing harder on things doesn't always lead to success.

I don't think any Updaters want to see you fail, but you are by far your biggest enemy. Sometimes I wonder if you even read what you are saying.

I know my abilities and I am an excellent judge of my own abilities.  The forum as a whole (not all, but most) says I have no meaningful abilities, thinks I am mentally ill, thinks i am worthless to society, etc.  Or, at least that's what I get from it.
When you refuse paid employment that you could do because you think it is beneath you and, instead, watch 4 football games plus hours more of reality tv claptrap, you make yourself worthless to society.

He's already taking several psychoactive medications. He's obviously already seeing a professional. If he goes back, his Dr will either change his meds, which is something nobody on here can do for him, and/or suggest the same behavioral modifications (diet, exercise, meditation) that we've suggested. They're not wizards. There's not much else they can do. The deification of mental health people by certain posters is ridiculous.

So, my gym recently changed their radio from the Classic Rock station to the de facto Girlpop station and this is one of the dozen or so unbearable songs that run in a cycle while I'm running in a cycle, trying not to be a fata$$. I had no idea until this thread that the song is actually all about glorifying fata$$ery, but whatever. It's still not the most counter productive song in the rotation. That honor goes to this monstrosity.

I've seen people fatter than Bushie deliver pizzas. It really is the perfect job for him. It even pays the amount of money he requires for consideration. What's the holdup? I'll even help a bit.

Also, once again, construction/demolition companies don't pay horribly, and they'll even hire ex-convicts, so you shouldn't have a problem getting a job.
That's hard work though. We should find him something air conditioned and comfortable.

Why would I apply to a job that pays, say, $9.00 over a job that pays $11-$12 that I am equally qualified for on paper?

Because you have a decent chance of retaining a $9/hour job, unlike the $11+/hour jobs that you are only qualified for on paper.

Bushie, living paycheck to paycheck would be a vast improvement over your current situation.  Or am I misunderstanding your final sentence? It is a confusing construction. Are you saying that you want to live paycheck to paycheck? That phrase has a very negative connotation.
