They were just referencing the running joke that liberal arts majors can't get real jobs, though it sucks that they assumed you're somehow a liberal arts major for working there.

Yeah, it depends on the LA degree. I'm majoring in urban and regional planning and getting certified in GIS. I'm pretty much guaranteed to get a job in my city right after graduating. However, something like gender studies or psychology not so much.


Your comment reminds me of this funny Kanye West skit where a guy spends all his money on getting his degrees and all he amounts to is assistant to the assistant manager at the Gap.

People like that are so obnoxious. Someone has to be there to hand them their heart attack on a bun, so why insult the person doing it?! Clearly you're providing them a service that they want so screw them for being so needlessly rude.

And once she got her degree she moved into another career. I think the customer thought OP was old enough to be a graduate, and by working in that job it's safe to assume they got a liberal arts degree.

On the contrary, Liberal Arts degrees have a great bit of value. I tend to think that people see it that way because Liberal Arts doesn't necessarily prepare you to do one specific, for example, how you would expect a Geology major to become a geologist. However, the Liberal Arts, on the whole, teaches you to communicate well, both in person and in writing. A Liberal Arts major may not have a set path to career success, but he or she will leave school with skills that are applicable to many jobs. They just have to make their own path.
