Now people are impatient. It takes a whole minute to heat something up in the microwave. Can't have rain. That messes up the Internet connection and pages take forever to load. Have to check my smartphone for texts, e-mail updates, Twitter, Facebook and voicemail so I can always know at any second what's up. Wouldn't want to miss a thing in case my friends are checking in to the restaurant 20 minutes away from my house and I want to meet them there, now.
With that comes this need. I deserve a better job because of where I went to school. I deserve that promotion because I got here first. But instead I can't find a job or the jobs I can find pay way below what I would like. Or why should I have to work so hard? I don't get paid enough to do the job that well.
What do you expect in this economy? Even if the economy was not like this, who says you deserve all you think you deserve? Even if all you get paid is minimum wage, at least you have a job. And you are still expected to perform your absolute best. No matter what you are paid. No exceptions. If you even want to consider getting paid more, you better do that minimum wage job to perfection. Even if you have a college degree, a master's, a Ph.D., a whatever degree, etc., what did you get it in? What can you realistically expect? The world does not owe you a high-paying job just because you have that degree. You have to earn that position, apply, interview and get there just like everybody else. You have to show you deserve it. Enough chitchat. Get to work and prove your worth and then maybe then you'll get what you're looking for.
Man, I sure hope Bono finds the answer to his question.
