Default Cleaning Toilets for Minimum Wage


In a world looking at gas station attendants with bachelors degrees. In a world full of historians and film majors -- of nutritionists and dental hygienists -- in a world of fire-science and English-writing degrees!

Yeah baby, yeah, child, you can be anything you wanna be! Yeah, baby, for a price.

Very good, very good. As Shelly said, the sentence "Education ain't worth a dime" is pretty nice.

Well, drunk or not, you delivered, again!

Since Jats beat me to nominating this, I won't need to anymore.

So true; I've found this to be relentlessly true. All my friends around me get through college and wander around struggling to find a good job whereas I've all the while been working my way up in a company. Now in a better position to to live my life with less struggle they continue to wander about in hopes to find that stability I worked so hard to attain. They were head-up-ass in books for years barely retaining any of what was learned during all that time.

Reality's blackboard rule: the media and popular belief is ignorant of me.
