    I struggled for years to get an Engineering

    degree, just to find out that nobody wants a female engineer. How funny is that? I got my degree almost two years ago, and I could only land 2 interviews. In which they politely asked me if I had any children, or wanted to have children, or if I had a husband. I don't. But what...

    Seriously, Do People Really Love Being Unemployed?

    It's boring beyond belief because there's nothing to do, no one to hang out with and no money to do those things you want to do like go to a cafe or have a drink. You can't join sports teams or clubs because you can't afford to get there, let alone take part. Even if you do go...

    Unemployment!?

    I think if people were "actually" willing to work they would do anything. There are enough jobs but people don't want to do them. For example, care jobs are ten to the dozen. Ok the hours are not great but the money is ok and it will change the way you think about things when you...

    So fokyn true. Disgusted by employers.

    And supervisors. And how business is done. Lies for profit. No quality products. Legal abuse. Catering to jerks. No trust. No decency. Its fokyn gross. They call it life. They are sad when broken like me. But before then they are yuky pigs.
