It used to be, working in retail, that you would get decent hours. The first time, I saved up $8,000 from a year and a half and got myself a car. The second time around, I saved up around $10,000 and put myself through two years of college law. That car was destroyed thanks to a woman who blasted out of the trailer park and hit me. I used my grandmother's car to get to college. When I finished those two years, the college gave me a website and then sat back down with their thumbs up their butts. I went to a University to finish off remaining credits and then ran out of tuition. The first college owes me an Associates Degree.
When I called about two years ago, the University stated that they did not deal in Associates Degrees. So I called the first college. They told me it was the University's job. I have been a passive fool ever since. I lost much tuition to dropped classes. I'm talking, one professor who counted off for past and present tense on the exact same subject. In case you're not aware, it's either one or the other. That and "comma placement", she failed the majority of the class. I aced the tests, but she failed me on the written assignments with unbelievable nitpicking. Her grading on grammar was WRONG. She wasn't even an English Professor. Just a World History professor that wasted our time ranting about how much she hated Christians.
Then there was Algebra for Scientists and Engineers. That professor assigned 90+ MathLab questions in between classes that took an hour each. Dropped both classes. Lost a LOT of tuition money since they refused to refund it. I didn't get mad. I didn't rage and threaten to burn down the college with those fools inside. I really don't understand what the hell was wrong with me. But now it's time to wake up. Oh, and an 18 wheeler truck destroyed my grandmother's car by merging without paying attention. So I'm paying off a new car about $357 a month until 2016. Retail jobs now haven't given decent hours since Obama began talking about free health care. They don't want to pay for health care, so they employ you under the minimum. That "free health care" became mandatory health care that costs much higher than if you went out and found it yourself.
Thanks Obama. Now I can't even work in retail and survive, much less save up for more college.
Anyway, that Associates Degree is mine. I will find out just what else the lazy college wanted, and take those classes. Then I'm going to HARASS them until they get me into a decent career field. They are not allowed to give me a "job site" and then sit around with their thumbs up their butts again. They will NOT hear the end of me until something substantial is done.
I payed for this. My future should not be so pathetic.
I have two years of college law and I work out of a laundromat.
