To people making jokes about texans - not cool peoples To people from Texas - it's a joke, this is fml, it was made to have fun on. You and I know that most assumptions people make about Texas are false. Let's leave it at that and move on. And to op - don't let it get to you I'm pretty sure your beautiful in your own way.
Seriously? What a shitty worldview. Not everyone believes they need to be defined by the job they have. Many people I know have jobs that just pay the bills. Markets tend to have long hours so my friend, who's a brilliant artist, works at one when she doesn't have showings to work up for or so she can save up for travelling or touring with her bf.
All cunthole means is that it's kind of depressing to see someone spend their entire life working in a boring and repetitive job, one that isn't really going anywhere and has almost no prestige associated with it. while this satisfies some people, and such people can be just as happy or more happy than a doctor/lawyer/athlete/astronaut, cunthole clearly is not among such people.
#83 Uh, dude? Did I ever say that was all I wanted to do with my life? I went to school and got a baking degree. Now I'm going back to school to get a bachelor's degree to have a second option. I currently have 2 jobs to support myself and pay for school. Besides, there's nothing pathetic about being a cashier.
*puts on white knight armor* LEAVE NERDSGETMEHOT ALONE But seriously, it's pretty presumptuous to assume that people who work at grocery stores are failures in life. Especially where I live, the vast majority of checkers are either teenagers or women who don't solely depend on their job for their income. Btw, nerdsgetmehot, I'm a huge nerd and I'm only a week older than you. Does that make you hot? :) *takes off white knight armor*
#76 that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. There's is no such thing as a "age-range" where the term loser is concluded in! It does NOT matter how old the cashier is! That was very disrespectful and un-called for. Age doesn't play a roll in it and its NEVER all right to insult someone
147 - it's even funnier that she says in her profile that it was just a few fmls written seeral different ways. That says to me someone is desparate to make it onto fml. But I agree about the cashier thing. And to answer the question who would do the job, easy high school and college students who need money.
178 - when somebody is 40 years old and lives in their mother's basement playing video games all day and have absolutely no part in paying the bills, then do you still think they're not a loser? There's no excuse for doing lazy shit like that, ever. Cashier job is different because it's a job that pays, and it's a job that is required by society. In my opinion it's right to insult someone if it's going to make them into a better/more useful person. Some people work better under pressure.
Nope, worked as a "checker" for about 2 months when I was 18. It blows. Now all you do is scan and it beeps? And people 40+ do this? That my friend is sad when you can even get promoted to stock! At 22, you're getting to the point where you should be moving on to a real job. One that makes more than 10 bucks an hour...
And maybe someone who is a checker at 40 and has no other ambition is indeed sad. It depends on the situation. If they have nothing else in their life, I would be sad for them. However, I'm 22, working my way through school, and I would love to be a baker someday (as that's what I studied for). I have plenty of ambition to work towards something other than being a checker. I apply to as many baking jobs as I can each week. The only reason why I'm still a checker is because I need to for rent, food, gas, etc. I would be a loser if I quit my checker job and couldn't pay for any of those things. I'm doing what it takes to be able to live and support myself. Like I said, I also have a second job, which is customer service and making frosting at a bakery (and helping with baking when the baker needs it), so at least I'm getting my foot in the door to achieving what I want to be. What's sad about working towards an ambition? In my eyes, nothing.
Okay, nerdsgetmehot, thank you for telling everyone your life story. It's great that you are a 22 year old with a baking degree who is working on getting a bachelor's degree and is happy being a cashier... ANYWAY, 20 was obviously joking, so all the serious responses are quite unnecessary.
#219 I'm not happy being a cashier; I never said that. I'm actually quite miserable at that job, which is why I'm looking for a baking job and going back to school. I wasn't obvious to me that #20 was joking, as I don't really have a sarcasm detector for text on the internet, but thanks for that little insight. I just find it quite insulting when someone tells me that I'm pathetic because of my job "choice." I'm not a cashier by choice, I'm a cashier by necessity.
Yeah, I can see why it would bother you. But it does look kind of silly when you rant about a comment that wasn't serious at all. Besides, why should you care about the opinion of someone who truly believes that people with jobs that aren't "glamorous" are pathetic? I'm sure you know that most people won't assume that you're pathetic just because you're a cashier, so it's best to just ignore such comments, or assume that they are sarcastic.
#226 I actually didn't know that most people wouldn't think I'm pathetic for being a cashier. I thought most people would, seeing as how most customers treat me at work. I think the main reason I was so mad at cunthole is because I experience people like that at work every day. I get treated with a lot of disrespect, and it's obviously because I'm in a "low" position. I just get tired of that mindset, you know? It just doesn't seem fair to treat a human being as being "less" than other people because they're working a minimum-wage job.
230- You seem to be taking all of these comments very personally, even though you're not really the type of person cunthole was talking about. It's sad when you see someone working at a grocery store as a last resort, or doing it their entire life. You obviously have other things going on (as you explained in your autobiography above) so you're not one of those people. So you can stop getting offended now, k?
It sucks ... Are you so ugly??
What a jackass. Being a checker at a grocery store, I know that comments like that can get an employee in a lot of trouble. I don't make comments like that though, because I'm a nice checker. ;) Sorry, OP! Sometimes you just have to choose not to listen to mean comments like that. As Eleanor Roosevelt (a wise lady) once said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
106, I believe 86 was trying to be a d-bag and put you down for being a decent human being who doesn't put people down and for quoting someone who isn't currently on a reality t.v. show. I think 89 was speaking to 86, as in "No, we don't live in this world"...sarcastically, since you seem 'so outside the norm' for being nice, especially on the internet. 89 can correct me if I'm wrong, I don't really mind what 86 has to say.
Oh my gosh people, shut up already! I am from the heart of dixie, and there is no grandpappy's farm, goodly isn't a word used on it, we don't snort like idiots, and yes, we use the word Y'ALL quite often. It means you all. Northerners need to shut the fuck up, because last time I checked, 'pop' is the stupidest name I have ever heard for a SODA. good grief...
@6, yeah that cashier was a pretty big douchebag to say "Hell no". Though I did find it funny that the OP joked about him thinking she's a stripper for having a ton of bills. In my experience as a sales associate, women with tons of $1 are always a waitress or a bartender, not a stripper.
I totally agree with nerdsgetmehot. OP, don't pay any attention to what that jerk said - he knows nothing about you. I don't know you either, but I'm betting you're a beautiful person, both inside and out. And Eleanor Roosevelt was indeed a VERY wise lady. :)
