College basically just proves you're not a worthless hack. That's pretty important if one wishes to have a job that pays enough to survive, these days.

To be honest, I'm not even sure if it can prove that. I would say that there are plenty of worthless hacks that have come out of college. Is everyone? No, but college really doesn't prove a whole lot.

As with most things, it's less about what you know and more about who.

Yes, but many companies and hiring managers seem to believe that a degree is required to even get a job, or to move up in the company and not be stuck as a cashier or stock associate until kingdom come.

Unfortunately, Very True.    I was given the Managers position because I was the only one there who COULD do it.  Been there the longest and knew the store, but If anyone more "qualified" had applied I wouldn't have even been considered.  Heck, even now I am technically Temporary.  I could solidify my position if I had a degree in literally anything apparently...but because I didn't want to put myself in debt for the rest of my life I am considered low on the priority...even though I can do the Job.

Exactly. I put in for multiple promotions over the years. Staples was adamant about not even INTERVIEWING me for them. The reason I was given the first time was basically "you haven't been here long enough," and after that "people with degrees applied, so we didn't even bother, because you wouldn't get the job."

One job came up while my normal store manager was on medical leave, and the manager filling in decided I was "too immature and couldn't even handle my current job" based on two weeks in which he worked with me a grand total of twice. My store manager was pissed when she came back that I was skipped like that, especially since he didn't know me well enough to make that call for those reasons.(her words as well as mine) Staples wasn't a great company in hindsight.

I rarely get interviewed for promotions, which would not be the case if I had a degree of any kind in literally anything. I've been told this a few times.

There are plenty of worthless hacks that go into the military and come out of it. You'll see that in life after college when you work your career in any company that you go to

One week from last night, my wife and I will be seeing a pre-screening of Jumanji: The Next Level.

Hmmm... just doesn't have that same ring to it, does it?  Oh, well, I will enjoy the free movie and the date night with my wife, anyway.

Cheers, all!

I don't know that I'll see it two weeks from now.... but I WILL see it in theaters, at least once. It depends on my schedule. Probably my first day off after I get payed that it's out.

I still need to see Frozen, I just need to get paid.....

I'm paid bi-weekly. I got paid a couple weeks ago(half a check since I went back to work mid pay period), and I feel like I haven't been paid in months, despite it only being a few days shy of 2 weeks. We get paid Mondays(random), but my bank usually gives it to me on Saturday, which is great! Saturday is pay day, finally.
