Wow, they have a college degree. So what. Most people who go to college shouldn’t be in college. They should know what they need to know by the 12th grade in order to function in society. That, or our K-12 schools have completely failed us. Because you know a communications degree from Siena college doesn’t mean shit, right? What the hell do you learn in that major, how to party in Loudonville?
Doctors, engineers, mathematicians, lawyers, physicists, chemists, biologists, vets, even agriculture or forestry majors… these are the people who can learn something more useful to society in college than in K-12. The exception is being a college professor – but that’s kind of recursive. You go to college and major in English to become a college professor in English. Because what the hell else would you do with that degree?
College, however, is a business. As such, they’ve conned millions of people into thinking that you need a college degree to do anything in life – and they’ve convinced employers that worthwhile candidates must have a college degree. Furthermore, colleges have convinced everyone that you have to specialize in very expensive ways. If you don’t believe me, check out Academy of Art in San Francisco. This “college” has to be one of the biggest scams around. I’ll get into that someday in a future post.
Also, I just want to point out that this girl is trying to find a job on Craigslist on her overpriced MacBook. If she was that desperate, go to the frickin library and use a computer there. I bet daddy bought this for her.
I additionally want to point out that she was serving drinks at Jake’s Dilemma, a bar I used to frequent on the Upper West Side. The great thing about this bar is they have dozens of beers on tap. It’s actually a great place to have a quality beer on draft, if it weren’t overrun by idiotic fratboys like the ones this girl caters to.
