Is this the thread where the IT monkeys with their CS Degrees and crappy jobs go and mock people who have the types of degrees that their bosses do?

AngryJailhouseFistfark: Keep us serfs toiling 45, 60, 75 years, feeding that Big Machine. Give us enough cheap, carb-rich foods and Sports Entertainments to keep us mollified, stupid, and toiling away.


Somewhere, later tonight, patrons at a bar somewhere are going to hear all of this in person and start backing very slowly away from you ...

ok, see how my hand wraps around the cyldender? Ok, just apply the right amount of pressure, here, on the tip. Rub slowly, but firmly. Now, take the your other hand and stroke the bottom. Don't grab too tightly. Now, with your first hand, glide up and down, evenly until the cream appears on the tip. Now point it so it doesn't get in your eyes. It kinda stings if that happens...

LULZ, no. This is the thread where uwe bona fide engineers with the real degrees mock you ALL for choosing a line of work that is so volatile as we continue to get ahead even as our bosses come and go with their oh-so-wonderful-but-useless MBA's.

Yes, Engineers are the only profession with job stability in the world and the only profession that makes any money.

/the 1 in 10,000 Engineer who actually has some modicum of social skills actually can make himself pretty farking valuable, however.

/humor, please activate your sense, that is all...........


Sorry I live with an Engineer, and she is German - that sense has long since withered and died.

letrole: What you actually did was compare your business environment and you professional behaviour to a period tv drama that's riddled with inaccuracies and anachronisms.

lilplatinum: And? The fact that it might not be an accurate representation of a certain industry at a certain place in a certain point in time means it can have no similarity to a mentality that exists in a different industry in a different place in a different point of time?
Gotcha.


Got me with what? A lunchtime revelry? A lame comparison that you might expect someone to make if they actually did have a desktop cluttered with nic-nacs that said things like "You don't have to be crazy to work here -- but it helps"?

Well, it's sorta a drag working this side of the mall. All the action happens by the movie theater where "Rat" works. Yeah, he once borrowed his sister's car to take Stacey Hamilton to a German eatery and someone broke into the car and stole the stereo. It's an old story. From 1982, I think.

It's more like 1 in 25, in my working experience. ( still not very good). I've worked under Mechanical & Electrical Engineers, who, if you sent them as a diplomat to Russia or China, could easily trigger WWIII shortly after stepping off the plane...

Oliver Twisted: Great Janitor: More and more I question the value of college. I was fed the "Go to college, get an education, make more money." I did that, found that you can make more money not going into college and instead, going into sales or starting your own business. If you have a calling and a burning desire to become a lawyer, doctor, scientist or engineer, then college definitely. If not, them the debt isn't worth it.

Sales has never really required a degree. You just have to be a salesman. I have learned that I am not. It seems to be one of those things that is innate in people and then grows with better with the good ones.


I hear that quite a bit "I am just not a sales person." And in truth, people aren't sales people, they are just afraid of living on commission. They'd rather work 40 hours at $20/hour than work sales where you could earn what you would in a week at $20/hr just off of one sale that takes less than one day.

One guy said to me "I am not a sales person." I said "You are a douchebag who bangs a different hottie each week while living with your parents. You are probably the best salesman I know."

I've tended to find that most engineers have a modicum of social skills. I used to believe that old stereotype, but I just haven't seen it in the real world. It could have something to do with confirmation bias, though, as I tend to run completely unskilled people out of an interview, even if they're technically brilliant. But I'm in an industry and company where social skills are just as important as your talent level, and you'll crash projects if you can't play nice with people who you have every justifiable reason to want to run over with your car.

Perhaps if the people who pursue liberal arts degrees could learn to properly spell and punctuate, they wouldn't have to work at a place like "Starbuck's".

No. This is the thread where those with liberal arts degrees make half-hearted attempts to justify taking the long way round to an exciting career of part-time clerical work.


Hey fix my computer, monkey, I have to go get loaded at lunch because I can.
