This is just for the interest of knowing. Suppose you need a job. Badly. And suppose here's a very well-paid job -- I repeat, very well-paid -- where you do things like grovelling in front of lots of people and acting stupid, and letting them laugh at you and throw things at you, etc etc (Heaven knows what purpose it might all serve). Would you take this job?

How long would you have to keep the job for?

You mean, if you don't have to keep it for very long, then you'll take it?

I voted i'd rather starve, if people laugh at me all the time and throw stuff at me, it will only be a matter of time before i smash someone's head in, and then i'd get fired anyway. So i'd better not work there to begin with !

Yep! Show me the dough! They may think me undignified and they may laugh at me all the way to the bank and early retirment. Besides, Im a retail manager so I already get zero respect from some people and Im already underpaid for it now, so it would be like a step up!

I'd rather find a job I like. [img]tongue.gif[/img] Grovelling isn't really one of my strong points, I don't think I'm qualified anyway.

From my current experiences during my student internship, I have become a firm believer that I'd rather be paid pittance for a job I enjoy rather than be paid reasonably well for a job I hate.

I couldn't grovel or make myself look stupid on purpose, I believe [img]tongue.gif[/img] So that pretty much settles it, and what's the point of having tons of cash if you're driven too insane by the way you earn it to enjoy it? [img]tongue.gif[/img]
