This right there is fantastically infuriating. His problem is that he's a lazy bum and doesn't want
to put in the effort to make his situation better, but it's not his fault? Are you serious?
I think you miss read my post.
I am a veteran, but I am not looking for work. I have tried full retirement on three different occasions, but as a Forensic's Nurse, retirement is not
that easy to do, when the need for my services are so great. Crime may not pay, but it costs, it is never ending, and is a good barometer for just how
well or poorly our society faring.
I can see were it may look like I was making excuses for my friend's son. However, I am not. The fact that she was feed up with him to the point that
she had to take off three days to help him find a job, clearly speaks to the fact that she didn't believe he was trying very hard to find work.
To be fair I don't think he is lazy. I just think that he, like too many young people today, he has no concept of what it takes to make it in this
world. He thinks that all he has to do is say he wants something, and the world is supposed to hand it to him. He understand the words work, job,
employment, paycheck, and bills, he just don't understand how that plays out in the world he lives in his mind.
Also to be fair, it is not his fault. Everything he is, he was made that way. My friend always wanted her son to have everything she didn't have. She
didn't want him to want for anything, so she and her husband worked their entire lives around his happiness, his wants, and his needs. Now that he is
grown and out of college, they thought he was just magically going to pick up the gauntlet and run with it. It didn't happen.
Again to be fair, everyone can't stand out, and even if you did stand out, if by the luck of the draw, there where 10 people that already stood out
before they got to your application, well, I guess it is just better luck next time.
That is one of the reasons that some businesses are putting such a strong emphasis on apprenticeship and preceptorship. They are hedging their bets.
Get cheap labor until you get them skilled or weed them out.
