Well, naruto, whoever YOU are, you didn't see that my original post was from 2005.
"In times like these", no one has to be a dick. We are all (well, those of use who aren't millionaires) in the same boat. You should BE so lucky to have ANY job in many places, and you should smile your ass off because of it. I live in one of the most depressed areas in the country so don't tell me about being happy to have a job.
Have you ever heard of "anything worth doing is worth doing well"?
Alternative job or not, if you work, at least do it right. I don't disrespect fast food workers and I don't expect them to treat me like a bother. I pay their paycheck.
And I guarantee that there is someone right in line behind you to take your job, for less money, and kiss my ass.
