We all need our asses kicked from time to time.  That and the fact that failure is the number one way to learn lessons.

Comment 15 Jul 2016

Mrs. YTown gets a little upset with me because I don't immediately jump from my seat when YT1 falls down or runs into something.  I normally say something like, "meh, see how she reacts".  99% of the time if I don't display a reaction then she doesn't cry.  Interesting how that works.

Dude, it's sickening. Every single basic, expected, normal, routine thing they did in life was treated like they beat cancer, cured cancer, and completed the Iron Man - all before lunch! 

I'm only 30 and I feel a huge divide between people my age and those that are maybe only five years younger.  When I was 17-18, my father basically told me that while life is fun, mine was about to get shitty and the only person accountable for any of it was myself.  He's done some pretty hard ass things to me over the years but after time I grew to appreciate all of it.  Without it, I'd probably be dead in a ditch somewhere.

I completely agree with that.  Today's generation has a tough time understanding reality because they've been told nothing but how great they are.  I assume the same goes with recruiting.

Comment 15 Jul 2016

You're exactly right.  Most of these guys probably have a fall guy in place as well so that they can bury someone when shit hits the fan.  With that many millions of dollars floating around you'd be stupid to think they don't have elaborate schemes in place to maintain the deniability. 

Comment 15 Jul 2016

That tends to be a societal problem, really.  More oft than not victims of sexual assault are told they put themselves in that situation, which is bullshit.

Mullen saying what he said definitely is going to hurt him.

The SEC is not looking good when it comes to morals today but it is kind of a reflection of our current society, isn't it?

Comment 15 Jul 2016

He is a college football coach and they lie.  Whether or not it's intended nearly all of them probably fall short on promises made to recruits.

Comment 15 Jul 2016

Is it really the easy way, though?  I mean, it may seem easy at first but lying to cover up lies has to get exhausting.

You ever lie to cover up a lie with your parents?  That shit breaks you, man.  Unless, of course, you're an SEC coach.  In that case, it's way of life.

Comment 15 Jul 2016

Probably the same way he did in at the NFL draft.  When people cheat like that and push things under the rug they don't have a problem lying to the face of others.  I don't see Hugh suddenly gaining some sort of morality any time soon.

Comment 15 Jul 2016

The Saban one bothers me most.  Those dudes got busted with weed and ILLEGAL STOLEN weapons!  WTF, man!?

Comment 14 Jul 2016

That's the right choice for internal network.  If you could afford fiber you'd be killing it but definitely not worth the money.  At least not in 2016.

I will run things by the wife and might be able to work something out but with my timeline I would assume you'll have already completed it.

Comment 14 Jul 2016

I plan to buy it and then get drunk with my brother and play the hell out of it.  If it's anything like old times we'll end up beating the shit out of each over whose turn it is.

Comment 14 Jul 2016

I mean, first shift hours are always better.  I've deployed a few times with the Navy so I know what shitty hours and missing OSU games is like.  In my mind, you're just doing your time until you can move on to bigger and better things.

What kind of advancement outlook do you have at your current gig?  Is it reasonable that you could be promoted within a year?

Comment 14 Jul 2016

You may feel like your job and job history are shit but as long as you make your resume and profile look like you're the best goddamn service provider ever, then you'll do fine.

Comment 14 Jul 2016

I know hours suck and you get stuck with shit work but that's part of being 20.  I can assure you that if you continue to put in your time, everything will work out.  If you hate the hours so much, have you considered speaking with your boss to have a different schedule?  Most managers will oblige to a degree so long as you're in good standing with them.

If you enjoy customer service you may want to get used to shitty hours.  You could always enter into the IT field as an entry level help desk technician.  But again, your hours will be shit.  You're 20 and I presume not married or with children which means you're more likely to work shit hours.  Always keep in mind that taking on bad hours just to get into a company can pay off in the long run.

You would be very wise to get into LinkedIn.  If you want to email me I can send you a link to mine as an example.

A lot of employers are using LinkedIn and only LinkedIn to vet potential employees.

Comment 14 Jul 2016

You could always try putting together a well worded resume, getting a LinkedIn profile, and then searching for jobs all over the web.

filling out applications for the past week but nobody seems to be hiring in my area

In today's market, a week isn't much time.

Comment 14 Jul 2016

You're not lying there.  Also another reason I sign up for absolutely zero of those.  The only thing you ever even get from them are a couple coupons in the mail anyways.  Just another way for them to track your buying habits and use your personal info.

Clerk: "But don't you want to save money on gas?"

Me: "Nope."

Clerk: "Who doesn't want to save money on gas?"

Me: "That's none of your damn business and I'll mind if you stay out of my personal affairs."

Mrs. YTown wasn't too thrilled when that conversation happened a few weeks back.  Guy behind us in line snickered quite a bit though.
