    Then he should go look for a better job. Assuming the 1% CEO crowd hasn’t already sent them all off to China.

    “You want fries with that ?”


    Most commonly used sentence by Arts graduates after finishing college.

    Yep, I’m guessing that is the norm now a days…Right dukedoug…When I retired the first time, a friend of mine told me I only have to remember one thing…“Do you want fries with that”….He thought I retired too soon…

    I’m currently more retired that I want to be … Flipping burgers would not be an option ‘cos I’d fail the age criteria (I’m well over 17 years old …). All the other “old f@#ts” seem to be working in the local hardware warehouse.


    They had a guy working there last December … big, bushy white beard; well fed (like me). I swear it was Santa Claus moonlighting to make some additional Christmas cash before heading off on his global sleigh trip. The Christmas hat he was wearing just added to the impression.

    I used to have a “Grin and Bear It” cartoon from the early ‘70s:
    .
    A laid-back college student (beard, army jacket, sandals) is in a guidance counselor’s office. The counselor is asking him, “So want do you want to be … besides a ‘renaissance man’?
    .
    It used to be English Lit, Psychology, and Political Science were the throw-away degrees, a waste of Daddy’s money. I gather that “poli-sci” is on the upswing now, with politics-as- business the current trend. Everything comes in cycles.
    .
    Maybe “geriatric health service worker” is the coming hot field. Elder care centers are popping up all over. It’s like an analogy to natural processes: The litter on the forest floor decays and provides nourishment for the future generations of plants and animals.
    .
    We Baby Boomers thought we would live a long time, and we are – just not with the panache we imagined. Will we become a social stratum of struldbrugs?
    .
    Not exactly a ray of sunshine today, am I?

    I bet he could sell it on E-bay and get a few bucks for it.

    emptc12: Interdisciplinary degrees are great for learning new jobs fast. It kept my family fed despite the blacklists.

    If only he had majored in Chinese. At least then he could be working at a Panda Express or a P. F. Chang’s.

    Thanks for the comment. I’m actually a cheerful pessimist, i.e., usually proven right, with an overdeveloped sense of irony rather than humor. I think somebody on these sites is called “Puddleglum,” referring to the Narnia character, and that’s a bit how I am.

    There were a number of college educated members in the crew of my sub. Whenever they would start bragging about their degrees, I would remind them that they were still in the bilge right next to me.

    Why is there so much interest in trashing liberal arts degrees?
