So I worked at Subway for a while in high school...concessions at a movie theatre over a summer...looking for a job where I don't have to deal with people. I'm in college so I have limited time (weekends mostly). Any ideas?
if you don't care about having a kinda **** job - just need some spending money... get a job as a dishwasher or a prep cook at a decent restaurant. you'll be in the kitchen, have something you can just zone out and do, and at many places you get at least a little piece of the tips. easy job to find part-time as well.
If you've got work study, I say just go with that even if it means you might have to encounter another human being every once in awhile. There are always plenty of dishwasher positions available on University campuses.
Plus, if you have workstudy, you don't have to report that money you make as income on your taxes--instead it shows up as financial aid!
I'm in college and hate people too. The day after tomorrow, I have a typing test for a job as a data entry clerk. It pays a lot more than dishwashing.
Beat me to it. I work for my university right now transcribing....you don't see or talk to another soul for your entire shift (if you're doing your job). I make what starting dishwashers do, and I'm not covered up to my eyeballs in watered down dressing and dish washing solvents.
I don't want to live in a world where there are no consequences for being stupid. A few thousand years ago these users would have been eaten by lions.
I got paid to hang out in a computer lab and make sure no one walked off with a monitor. Occasionally one of the students would need help, but there was also an awful lot of Angband playing involved. My roommate's job was more demanding, he spent his days in the basement of the Geology department feeding a mass spectrometer, but involved even less human interaction.
What I'm saying is, check out the school's help wanted postings...
Try to be a lab assistant. You ma have to occasionally deal with people, but first off, you get paid to sit and do your damn home work, or play Snood or something. It's good ****. Secondly, you get to meet girls.
You may hate people, but remember: you are at college to get laid as much as possible, and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. If I could trade my A's for more lays, and take C's instead, I would.
You damn kids. I didn't realize what college was about until my 3rd year
I did a job watching the Chem Lab Supply Room. First week of the semester it was really hectic, getting everyone their supplies they needed. The last week of the semester it was hectic, with everyone else checking in their supplies.
In between, I sat and studied and maybe once every 2-3 weeks someone would need 1 or 2 items and I'd have to get off my butt and get them from the shelf.
Heh, Nymm. Man, I would love to quit college and join the military. Or, as probably would be a lot more fitting for someone who gets nauseous when people get hurt, go to New Orleans and join up with one of the aid groups rebuilding the city, like a friend is right now. It seems like a lot of places in the world would be ... uh, "more fertile?" than trying to balance life between getting good grades, entertainment and coming up with spending money... *sigh*
The course I took was to work a better paying job in the summer full time and bank the money for use during the school year. The work study jobs have crap hours and crap pay. Construction/Excavation/Lawn Care/etc. all pay fairly decent wages even if you're just a gopher.
Niska: Oh, you do not like I kill this man?
Mal: No, I'm sure he was a... very bad person.
Niska: My wife's nephew. At dinner I am getting earful. There is no way around that.
