J-Mann, I am beginning to question your judgement here.
How hard does a person have to break to satisfy you? Profuse apologies in public? An eating disorder? Suicide?
All I'm saying is that his admission of how serious his problems are is a first step toward reality, and if someone's problems weigh on them to the point of emotional breakdown, stepping away to get a clearer head can help.
Jeff's financial and social situations are so dire that, as of this morning, he couldn't even do that. Since that time, he's won a trip to Albuquerque, which he'll probably enjoy much more than a spa trip, anyway.
He has not admitted anything. He instead acts as if he knows everything and we are the dumb people here, that he, a complete and utter failure, is a "smart cookie". He goes back and forth at times, but it's not anything real. He's as self-secure about being his slobbish, lazy, vain, deceitful, dishonest self. I mean look at these recent selections. This isn't a man "breaking", sure he's putting on a little show but after his bible study, a football game or six, a "brief relaxation" with the help of a parentally-paid adult television subscription (he says he's canceled it?... whatever. ), he'll be back telling us as to how WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH and that HE BELIEVES IN HIMSELF AND THAT IS ENOUGH and WE SHOULD NEVER QUESTION HIS FAITH! NEVER! I mean just look at it:
I would love a bank teller position. I have thought about that several times, but get discouraged by the cash-handling experience and the very low pay.
And he deserves a higher pay because....?
I'm usually pretty careful about weeding out the scams on those sites.
HA! NO YOU'RE NOT!
In my job searches, I will definitely be looking for places you suggest. Now, don't be surprised or upset if I take a customer service job in the mean time just to get some money coming in, but be assured I will keep seeking a better job that will better suit my skill set.
You have no skill set, nor will a customer service job get you any money because you're going to be fired in a month! Why do I say this? Because it's literally
happened a dozen times or so!
Here is why I rarely listen to the forum. Most of the forum thinks I can't do anything, or can't do anything significant. Friends don't think their friends can't do anything. That's where most of the forum utterly fail. They never give me a chance and try to discourage me from EVERY friggin job I come across. Shut up, will ya.
We think that because as far as we know it is true- you cannot do anything! You either can't, or some part of you makes you decide that you shouldn't be doing it- i.e. Oklahoma NG, that job a few months ago where they were paying you to sit around. It certainly hasn't been proven false!
King, I don't have to convince myself. I'm a pretty smart cookie and I'm positive I can do this. If I fail, I fail, but if I succeed that's all the better.
No, you are not by any standard a "smart cookie", or a smart anything. You cannot do this.
500 hours I won't gain, I will agree. It doesn't mean I can't pass the tests.
You do not have 500 hours of experience and therefore cannot do it, not to mention you're you on top of that. You haven't a clue what this is. You can't do it. I'm sorry-no, I'm not ever sorry when you
are concerned- but your "genius" will not allow you to skip four months worth of experience unlike us mere mortals who can't.... arrrgh!
He needs to be hit with sticks, and you can take that as literally or as metaphorically as you so choose, but he should have forfeit any reasonable person's sympathy or desire to help him do anything, long, long before now. I doubt I'd want to employ him even if he
. The level of arrogance, of disdain for those "minimum wage workers" he is so much better than
, the constant telling us off...
The man is... argh, I give up, I made this damn post over two years ago
, and I'm not doing it again! Nothing has changed. I have to stop because I'm going to take it out on my computer otherwise and attempt to throttle it to death.
