The solar system contains about eight billion people

About half of them are women

Not everyone likes the same thing

Diversity

Anyone could like or dislike anything for any reason or no reason

How much you like something could be involuntary, natural or subconscious

I try to avoid working with two girls that I was working with before because I realized they were just using me so they had to do less. I did a lot of things to help them (like I do with everyone because I like helping people), and eventually they would ask me to do stuff and then just walk off wit...

I don't feel particularly enthusiastic about anything and I have not done so since about 12

Enthusiasm is a requirement listed in some job descriptions

Enthusiasm could be a good or bad thing

A day laborer had the nerve to call me "China" (in Spanish). He was not emotional and he didn't act racist sexist or homophobic or anything like that. But the day laborers are not even supposed to be in the parking lot. As a Lot Attendant, the day laborers have caused me more problems, tha...

Anyway once you do manage to pass an interview most workplaces have an unwritten rule of leaving your personality at the door. It is more like, "Leave your angst and drama at home; we did not hire hire you to be a crisis actor." __________________________ Some of my company's job descript...

A couple of years ago someone correctly told me that "no matter how many job skills you get someone with a better personality will always get the job." What is a 'better personality' though? It could be anything. ____________________ Your statement is correct. You can't measure the qualit...

An unfamiliar coworker had the nerve to say "sup, boy". He was not emotional. Annoying being called a "boy" when I am 39 and I find it hard to imagine that he's older or more emotionally mature than me. f**k Gilberto! ______________________________________ ASM Don's last day. He'...
