OH YEAH?!?! WELL WHAT ABOUT YOU DAMNED REDNECK CONSERVATIVES AND YER BEER?!?!! Nah, I'm kidding. I agree with what you're saying, pimpin, but I'd like to point out that not all kids who experiment, pot or otherwise, automatically get addicted and fail at life. A friend of mine smoked pot, and now he's a decked-out Marine. Looks really handsome in his uniform. And actually, my high school was fairly conservative, but had a pretty shitty "life-preparing" system. The only real business classes we had were Ag Tech, Business Law, and Accounting. Other classes for "life-preparing" were Foods, Children, and Mass Media. [facepalms] Yeah, because it's really important for us to understand the TV culture, and we're all gonna have families. For us, the seniors, we had a few half-days, so they had the seniors attend some speeches about "adult living." In other words, around here we have to rely on our parents to teach us about life lol Not that that's bad, but yeah, schools need to step up. Oh, and yeah, OP You need to step up too. High school degree is shit these days. Go to college.

YEAH WHAT THE FUCK DOES BEING A VALEDECTORIAN MEAN?!!?!?!?!!? Just because you were the valedectorian, you should be allowed to research in biophysics??!?! YOU WORK AT MCDONALDS BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T GO TO COLLEGE!!!!!! YOU DIDN'T WORK HARD!!SHE DID. So what if you taught her english? she has been working alot harder. THAT"S THE REASON. IF you are dumb enough , NOT to understand that.. Then its no WONDER you're working at Mcdonald's. GEEZ
Haha Now see, DGW? We can agree! LOL OP- well you're a whiny, probably lazy, and stupid idiot. Big fucking deal, you were your high school Valedictorian! Which means your teachers had big hopes for you. Well, I guess you showed them!! The person you tutored actually tried to make something of herself and suceeded. You, on the other hand, had your best years in high school. WTF would make you think you deserve a better life than that person? It takes hard work, and sacrifices, and brains to get anywhere in life- unless you're born with the proverbial "silver spoon". Shame on you for thinking you deserve sympathy. Either get up off your lazy ass and get an education- or STFU.
except that #16 has a point. if the OP is mad about this he should get off his lazy ass and do something with his life. if he was valedictorian he most likely got accepted to an at least somewhat prestigious college, therefore he had the option to make something of his life. if he didn't he needs to stop complaining. FHL.
I understand that college is expensive, because I just graduated, and that was my first thought too. But then I realized that if this other girl has a PhD now, it's likely that she was in school for approximately 10 years. Assuming she and the OP are the same age, or at least close (i don't see why a freshman would be tutoring a senior in hs, for example), that's plenty of time to work for a few years to save up money, and then go to school. It's expensive, yes, but I made it through school with no help from my parents and only one semester's worth of loans with the money I got working through high school and college. and OP: if you're not happy with your job, save up your money, a little at a time (and stop spending so much, if that's your problem) and go back to school! I know it's hard, but if you are in a management position, I would think you would be able to scrape up enough at some point to go to school again.
Dude....I have an IQ of over one hundred and fourty five, Im in school to be a Bioprocess Engineer, thats someone who researches new alternative fuels, Im in my second year of college at seventeen....and I work at McDonalds. Were in a recession, Jobs are scarce, and short of a specialty degree, there isnt much to separate a high school valedictorian from me. My point is, I work like a dog at McDonalds, and I do my job well WITHOUT drugs in my life. I want to better myself, but there arent options open. You need to open your airtight little mind to the idea that not only can smart people work in Fast Food, but you HAVE to be relatively smart to handle the organization and FOCUS required in Fast food....which you cant have on Drugs. Take your redneck left wing, overly excited, under-intelligent, brain dead, views OFF the internet. For all of our sakes. Squigi~
#16: just because someone works at mcdonalds does not mean that they are a pothead. OP is just paying h dues... some of the most successful people have worked at fast food restaurants or worked at the bottom. maybe OP is in a tough spot and didn't have options. this also does NOT mean that she didn't go to college or isn't in college. open up your mind a little& grow up.
Agreed 114. It's pretty hard to be valedictorian of ANY school without working hard. I'm graduating college in the spring and starting my master's in the fall. I hate when my friends from high school don't want to hang out with their friends who went to college because THEY feel like losers for not doing anything with their lives. If you WANT to be a manager of a McDonald's and you're happy with what you're doing in live, then that is fucking fantastic, but don't look down on other people's achievements.
[Ring] May I take your order? OP: I'd like to order a college education and um...some initiative. I also want to order a large not being a whining bitch easy on the ice. McDonald's employee: That will be get off your ass and do something dollars. OP: Shit I left my wallet in my other pair of self-pity pants. Sorry McDonald's employee: Here have a job application. OP: Well I better go online and complain instead of pursuing ambitions and being assertive.

Exactly. The chick was probably a brilliant asian amirite? Biophysics is some hard stuff, but half the people in upper level physics classes are hardly literate xD
It has not much to do with English literature, no. but it has a lot to do with basic english a phd is a lecturer a teacher. a researcher. wihout excellent english you cant get a phd op is trying to figure out how much mayonnaise pumps it takes to fill up a packet of mayonnaise. and the person who he used to teach BASIC english is trying to figure out physical applications to make medicine more safer and improve the world.
#47 - A PhD just means that person completed a certain amount of school, and got their doctorate. What about universities in other countries? They don't HAVE to speak a language that's not theirs in order to obtain a title from a school... they have to complete and pass their classes (including research and papers) and tests, though! Here's a link to the Wikipedia article about PhDs... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhD). I suggest you learn a bit more about them before saying something else that's not true. :)
what 80 said...it seems like OP tutored a smart foreigner whose first language is not English...if so, then so what? They are smart, and thats why they earned their PhD. Its not like they were talking basic English because they grew up in America, could not speak it in High School but now, 10 years later, they have magically become smart enough for a PhD. All this says is you tutored a foreigner who did not speak English when they came to this country. Also for OP, if you are Valedictorian, why are you working at a McDonalds? You can do better, get out, go to college, do something else with your life.
See, that's where you are wrong. You think that just because you're teacher speaks with a horrible accent and doesn't have the punctuation that Shakepere did, He got his degree on those grounds? No. Look, when you're studying biology just even at a masters level. YOu must have an outstanding vocabulary to understand the thousands of pages. My mother a surgeon, who thinks reading her literature is just as important as breathing is. She has horrible spoken english and vocabulary. But she CAN READ fluently anything and understand what's important. The kid who used to learn from Op, learned basic english So that's what I am talking about. Not strong enlish literature, No, they don't need a good sense of that.
LOL #1. You do know that Biophysics doesn't have that much of a correlation to English, right? You should get up and DO something about your situation instead at looking at what others are doing.
at least you're manager and not an employee :D
