Is it hard finding dudes to take these kind of gigs these days? Serious question, opposite side of the pond so I wouldn't know.

The skilled trades are suffering in America. Nobody wants to learn how to do shit with their hands, they just want to rack up $100k+ in student loan debt on a useless degree so they can work at Starbucks

Do you require your employees to have a clean ass? Will you hire chronic masturbators? Will you hire someone with a vagina? What will you do if someone steals from you?

I’ve been in management in these shops for 19 years and I’ve never seen anything like this. We’re scraping the bottom of the millennial barrel trying to find people willing to put in an honest days work. It’s really disheartening.

No. Yes almost exclusively. Yes, especially if they are a yes to the first two questions. Make an example of them.

I just ordered two combos at Arby’s, one with sweet tea one with unsweet tea. The kid repeats my order both of them with sweet tea and I corrected him stating that I wanted one of them to be unsweet. His response: “which one?”...

Fight for $15!...

I hired a tech recently who came from ABRA which is one of the nations largest chain collision shops. He said they made them sign a document stating they understood the phrase “common sense” was not allowed to be used in the workplace.

I know that in my next job interview, when the HR rep asks me what my best quality is. I'll answer with, "I'm not a millennial..."

I did that at quik trip yesterday. This young guy was busting his ass and getting bossed around by the young female manager behind the counter. I went back with a card and an application and slipped it to him. She was barking orders at him like a dog.
