We had this girl come in the other day who right when she walked in with her friend said loudly, “Ew, I can’t buy anything here. I have standards!”
After welcoming them the girl asked me how I liked my job which I told her it was fun. She stares at me for a moment before asking how much I get paid. I told her I preferred not to say and she laughs and tells me that I shouldn’t have dropped out of college and I could be making more then minimum wage.
I tell her that I am a high school student which she rolls her eyes at.
I get to be the lucky associate to work the register when her friend comes up to buy a few things. The girl looks me straight in the eye and goes, “I bet you regret skipping college now.”
I inform her that I am still a high school student which she ignores. Her friend apologized for her behavior before leaving the store.
Ignorant people who talk down at people making and honest living
Ignorant people who think that college magically lands you a job outside of retail.
I hope this lady chokes at a fast food restaurant and a medical student who works there to pay for her school bills doesn’t give her the Heimlich Maneuver or preform CPR.

Thankfully it didn’t fall off and actually came out quite well! (For anyone interested.)”

A bike mount with a pivot head could have achieved this. Don’t they usually come with the bike mount now?

Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [a Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.
You know those slacks that make men’s butt’s look perfect?
God bless those slacks.

isn’t greek yogurt a little too thick for this mistake to even happen?
I’m no sperm expert, but greek yogurt doesn’t seem passible.

I’m so glad I’m not the only person who thought that within seconds of seeing it.
Do online petitions really work on a federal level?
I feel like they don’t and they really just bother me. Anyone with a background in politics and law want to fill me in on their validity?
Now watch as the internet hates on Jennifer Lawrence because suddenly they remembered they were supposed to be supporting a minority. And you can’t have both!!
I think they’re both adorable women.
It would be real cool if I could get my money back for the week+ of college I’m paying for and missing becuse of snow
