Although I can't fire people I can get them in trouble enough to get them fired by a higher authority, I liked that simpsons episode. Getting boozed up, sounds good....to bad I don't like the taste of alchohol. That girl by my side if I had that I could honestly say this might be the best day of my life. Thanks everybody.

Ah nice, I've always wanted to work in a movie theater or a video store, I think if I was rich and set for life I would do that for fun. I would just love being surrounded by movies. Anyway I guess its too late for me because basically I'm working as a trainee at a car dealership and thats my carreer. Oh to be 17 again. :banghead:

I bet there's a million 17 year olds working at movie theaters/video stores wishing that they could be working at a dealership. :laughing:

Yeah true. This is definately the best job I have ever had. I'm just saying I like the idea of working at a video store. No stress, get to recommend movies to people, etc etc. I'm a bit of a movie buff, so thats why.

Its like being the guy who drives the little cart at the airport taking old people to their terminal. That would be the best job ever. But I can't do it because its not practical. It would be so fun though.

I know a guy who works as a valet, and everyone there is in their early twenties or so, except one guy, who is in his thirties, who was a major excecutive and basically set for life, and he just does the job for fun. That would be a sweet situation.

well i wouldn't say no stress because you ALWAYS get the complainers and rude people, but if your a person who doesn't get mad easily its pretty cool even though it test your patients. I'd like to be a valet that would be sweet just driving cars all night, I'd be afraid to hit or scratch one. On the other hand I'm a VERY confident driver and have faith in my driving skills.

No, I'm a very diplomatic person, I don't tend to lose my temper. I've dealt with angry customers before (working at Dominos Pizza), and I never once raised my voice. I like seeing how irrational people can be, while I calmly explain to them why they are wrong.

Are you studying to be a doctor?

You'll never be a captain of industry if you can't throw a hissy fit. Irrational people are the 80% of your profit = if they were level headed they would be part of the 80% who contibute 20% of your profit.

A. I don't believe in having a spaz to get what I want. I learned when I was 8 with my parents that it doesn't work. I have no respect for people that do.

B. I don't have any intention of becoming a captain of industry. Besides, just because irrational people are 80% of the profit, why does that mean I have to be one of them?

I don't know any other way to spell it I got this from a dictionary

pa┬Ětient ( P ) Pronunciation Key (pshnt)
adj.

Capable of calmly awaiting an outcome or result; not hasty or impulsive.

but also the noun version same spelling:

One who receives medical attention, care, or treatment.

Patience.

hahaha damn I think I used to know that also well I went back right now and patient and patients are two different words but the same word, if that makes sense, but patience and patients are different :screwy:
