insignificant, huh? hey i'm not the one working in fast food. (snicker,snicker)

okay, that was a little immature.

listen here now. i managed fast food restaurants for a good chunk of time, and i think i have the qualifications to state that one of the things that needs to be done are base boards, along with many other unpleasentries. they get kicked by shoes, and sloshed with mop water,and over time build up a layer of scum that needs to be cleansed by the people who work there. (hint)

anyone with problem solving abilities could easily come to this conclusion.

now we must move on to the topic of self esteem.

self esteem is not the ability to stand and say "i'm too good to do that." that is not self esteem, that is the lame brained thinking of a young, unsure, inexperienced girl who is afriad of loosing the respect of people that she feels will be judging her if she scrubs base boards.

on the other hand, the employee who realizes that baseboards is something that needs to be done and can go out in the dining room and scrub them without giving a thought or care about what anyone else thinks is the one with confidence, or self esteem.

you see, my tadpole, self esteem is found in a person who can submit themselves to the lowliest of conditions and still not loose face.

the stubborn, insubordinate ones are the ones who are unhappy with themselves and feel that they must prove themselves to the faceless population, and are in fact only expressing thier weakness of charactor. (lack of self esteem)

: Yes I do exist on a plane above the mentality af burger flippers- that dont realise how meaningless their existence is.

---okay, in responce to this, as apparently you overlooked it the first time...if you are too good for fast food, why aren't you working somewhere else?
