Understand completely.

I was in IT until my body gave out. Everything up to forensics and security, without programming. Certified all to hell. I’m now disabled and can’t work the jobs I used to.

I now work at a hotel at night. I get the same thing from people every night, about my poor life choices, why I’m there.

Because bills. Because disability doesn’t pay enough to live. Because I can’t work an 8-5 at a desk, or be on the road all day everyday thousands of miles a week like I used to.

Fuck those people. Just do what you need to for you.

There needs to be a purging in this country of these types of people.

Well, it's a new arostocracy. It's people who earn their living by leaching off others. People who create degree programs for jobs that you used to could apprentice or go to a vo-tech!

I work in the high tech industry. Almost everyone is pro lockdown. They HATE Trump. All of them get their groceries delivered, everything delivered. All of them are still making 200-400k/year. They are not nice people.

Not true.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73138097


100% true, it can potentially be outsourced and even potentially automated.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79483559


And once you are outsourced/automated out of a job, your former employer won't even be troubled by their conscience about your dismissal, since you are nothing but a face on a screen and an e-mail address to them...

No offense, but you need to figure out what you want to be when you grow up or you will never get anywhere.

I own a farm. I got money in the bank. Where do I need to get, miss? Just curious.

I really think you haven't read much of this thread.
 Quoting: SpacePiratePorthos



No, I didn't read the thread past your first post - that was more than enough. My original post wasn't meant to insult you, but just to point out that with all those credentials, you should easily be able to find a decent job. I've known several people who just seemed to collect degrees for a career, and ended up never really doing much with their lives. The degree in and of itself doesn't put bread on the table. In defense of teachers, 99.9% of the ones who are still stuck virtual schooling would love to be back face-to-face with their students. It is NOT a luxury to them. Plus, if you insulted the teacher, you really can't get uptight about the husband coming to her defense. Think about it.

Don't be an electrician, they are literally a dime a dozen and even when the economy is good, you'll find several dozen on the bench at any local union hall.
If you choose plumbing, become a sprinkler fitter. These guys are over $50 an hour on the check and every commercial building has sprinkler systems that require yearly testing and checks by... sprinkler fitters. A non-union scab shop will pay guys as much as union shops. You just need to earn your atta-boy cards to show you're qualified to to the work.
