Hey now! I think wearing brands like Brooks Brothers and Polo and others are a way of making myself a business. I think cargos are the opposite but to each their own. I'm a founding father of a fraternity that is trying to change the culture of Greek life and we've been pretty successful at meeting our short term goals. I'm glad that your baseball team is your fraternity! I played varsity sports all through high school and missed the camaraderie that came with being a captain of a team. That is why I'm greek. Stop hating on Greek life! You call them homos but you go to their parties. So what does that make you?

Being told I'm "overqualified" for a position! Been job hunting for almost an entire year... I hold 2 bachelors degrees, one in entertainment business, and one (a dual degree) in audio production and graphic design. Degree's seem to be a curse in this economy. Either you don't have enough experience for a job because just about EVERY damn posting is for a senior position, or you're overqualified...

Walmart, The Home Depot, Burger King, Target... I was told by every one of them that I am "overqualified" for a position there... I guess what they're basically saying is, "we don't want to hire you because when a real job comes available you'll leave us." This is TRUE... I spent nearly $100k on my education, and I will go where the money is... but in the meantime I'm like everyone else, with a wife, 2 kids, and bills to pay... I gotta make money too... and it's not like their turnover rate isn't ridiculous as it is... I don't know too many people who aspire to be a lifetime employee of Walmart... seriously, though... you'll hire someone with multiple misdemeanors, the mentally handicapped, a 16 year old kid with no financial obligations, and the extreme elderly... just not a valedictorian with 2 degrees, that's also a veteran with a family to take care of... have I missed something?

my apologies if this offends anyone...

Is it illegal to leave stuff off of your resume? Cause if not I'd do that and then reapply.

Not illegal, but most places will fire you if they find you've been deceptive... will they check, probably not but they sometimes do... If I left anything off though there'd be a HUGE gap in my employment history, since I've been in school for almost 6 years... that's also frowned upon haha... I lived off my GI Bill so I didn't need a job... needed to focus on my school work

When people use words in bad context. Particularly the words "genius" or "masterpiece".

This seems relevant...

Also, the general selfishness of people in certain aspects of society.

Aw hellll...
Jim wrote: 1. Ignorance, in general
Agreed. It's everywhere. Live and let live.
2. Cyclists on main roads.
Fuck off, that's me. And I'm faster than most of you and your crappy cars.
3. Windy days
Yeah, hate when I can't open the windows b/c it blows all the papers around in my kitchen.
4. People who walk slowly
As long as they stay to the right.
5. Old people
Careful there...
6. People who read your message on whatsapp and then blatantly ignore you for hours
Have I done that?
7. My child's mother
She's a kunt.
8. Grammar mistakes, seriously. You're an adult
Yup. Uneducated slobs.
9. Paper cuts
How can something so small hurt so much?

10. Bad hair days
Wouldn't know.
11. Waking up and about 3 spots have randomly emerged on your face
Valtrex works.
12. People typing their accent
Gid yin! (doesn't that mean "good one" ?)
13. iPhone auto correct #nemesis
It does give me an excuse for my grammar errors.
14. Fat people who do fuck all to help themselves
This is actually an incredibly huge health problem here, and it's getting worse. People really need to take some serious responsibility on this.
15. Seriously, i go to sleep at 1am.. And by the morning i have a dot to dot of white heads on my chin
Soap works, too.
16. The fact my facial hair doesn't grow as fast as I'd like
You want those Bradley Wiggins' bad ass sideburns, right?
17. Over dressed young teenagers
That's better than underdressed young teenagers
18. People who generally don't consider others when they do ANYTHING
Worst people ever. It's not about you. It's about all of us. Think of someone besides yourself for once.

True. Esp when the waist is worn at the knees. Stupid.
20. People who shove their beliefs down your throat
Welcome to America.
21. People who don't listen when I'm telling them what i believe in
What? Sorry, I was distracted there for a sec...
22. People who look like Austin, seriously bro.. Don't leave the house
Can't comment
23. Josiah
Well, at least you're way down on the list, Josiah. That's progress!
24. Neighbours who complain via a hand written letter about how i park on a public road NEAR their home
Is this related to Ryan's old neighbors? Hahahaha. Idiots.

25. Pigeons
Fucking flying rats.
26. Drivers who brake THEN indicate
And then turn into the far lane
27. Drivers who brake and indicate at the same time
and still turn into the far lane. Fucking turn into the nearest lane! It's not difficult.
28. Women
Can't live with them. Can't kill them.

29. The fact Merinda isnt my girlfriend (ironically, seeing as i just said women grind my gears)
She already got her Englishman, bro. There's always Holly.
30. Bad parents, like really shit parents
Lots of fucked up kids out there because of selfish ignorant fat poorly dressed gramatically incorrect nonsignalling blemished parents. And then those kids grow up to be selfish ignorant fat poorly dressed gramatically incorrect nonsignalling blemished parents themselves.
What grinds my gears...greed. Personal, corporate, whatever. Earth needs to be a team game. And it isn't.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

It grinds my gears when your ex loses weight after the breakup and she looks incredibly good and you realise 8 months down the line that you still aren't over her..
