Are you stupid? The guy at BK brings home MAYBE 17k a year. I worked full time at Walgreens, and yeah, that's my yearly gross income. I actually got a paycheck of about $1000 a month. Full time. You make, what, 50k at least? That guy at BK would have to have 30k worth of benefits to even equal what you get. Get over yourself, OP. You worked hard to get where you are, and believe it or not, you're fairly compensated. If it's so bad being in your job, then why not get a job at BK? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Salary = gross yearly + bonuses + 401k benifit - cost for insurance. When people are looking for a job offer, they don't look at all their compensation. My buddy makes a bit more than me when it comes to gross income, but I have better bonuses and pay less for insurance. While he takes home a bigger check, he has to give it all right back for insurance and other benifits. Consulting jobs are bad about this. They give a big fat check, but the don't give any benifits, so you have to pay insurance unsubsidized.

Yeah, I was going to say, when I've worked in fast food I've been restricted to 39.5 hours/week so I wouldn't qualify for benefits. If you're an engineer be thankful you *have* a job. I'm graduating soon with a degree in engineering and I only know of ONE person (aside from the software engineers) who's managed to get a job so far: a lot of people I know are in grad school right now desperately trying to delay when they have to pay their student loans and hoping the silver tsunami hits when they graduate again.

so, he goes to college, gets 3 degrees, makes something of his life, can speak 3 languages, and they dont deserve to get the benefits of all that work because apparently thats 'narcissistic'? to realize and be offended by someone whose job is meaningless gets better benefits? thats narcissistic?

#92 has a point in that the people who didnt get the breaks, didnt have the money to get the needed education and are now stuck living paycheck to paycheck on the bare minimum, likely with families to feed while this guy probably making 6 figures cushions his ass in some nice house or appartment and then starts whining when the guy living paycheck to paycheck is given some decent health insurance. @OP: You're paid a higher salary, therefore, less benefits. difficult math there mister engineer

Thats a hell of a BK, because my girlfriend works there and sometimes doesn't even get a break. No benefits and stuff, and she was just made a manager. Time to look for a better job? Flipping burgers in three languages? Of course if two of your degrees are art and English, and the languages are Elvish and Esperanto, and you're a garbage disposal engineer... Well, your life is fucked for wanting more glory and benefits.

if she's a manager that's her fault for becoming one...managers work 10 hours a day and don't get a break....where the employees work over 4 hours get a break work over 7 hours and get 2 breaks work over 11 it's the managers choice to give a 3rd one.... so it's her own fault for taking the manager job.

Well, actually, if we're talking about lame, then it would be 4. The other two referred to everything I say as "shit." You can thank Ignorance and Precious for those.
