Well, I'm also a student, but I am employed. I work part-time as a manager at Arby's. I guess that what most people don't know is that the roast beef usually sits on the slicer for hours at a time. It's supposed to only be on there for no longer than 30 minutes, but that's not really realistic, especially if we aren't busy. That's not as bad as what I'm sure some of you have, but it keeps me from eating roast beef...

That's probably the safest meat out there. It's cooked twice.

I'm on the DL right now, but heres some things I can tell anyone from working in health clubs for a long time. If you have a steam room or jacuzzi at your health club,and even if it's a really regularly cleaned one, you will be sitting in or on a lot of sweated off dead skin ( unless you are the first and only one to use them after a cleaning. Also, only 20% of members ,of 3 + years or more , use the club more than 45 days a year. Add in most people don't wipe off the equipment with a towel, even if they remembered to bring it, and even a club wiped down 4 times a day is rife with bacteria. Even with all that, the dirtiest thing in a health club is the aerobic room floor. If you take any kind of class in there and are on the floor without your own personal mat, it's disgusting. I actually made my cleaning staff at the last club I managed steam clean the carpet weekly. Well worth the investment in our own machine IMO .The long time night cleaning guy responded with " are you crazy we only do it once year right before January" , which is the busiest month for clubs because ofnew years resolutions. Last but not least, as a personal trainer, I can honestly say 80 % of people who lift weights do it wrong. Some people are so out of hand, I am afraid they will injure themselves at the moment, and I try to give them tips. About a 3rd are grateful and then want as much free advice as they can get, and 2/3 tell me they know what their doing even if they have a Will Ferrel physique.

I'm on the phone (on hold, mostly) for about 6 hours (out of 9) per day. If I talked to you, there's a 99% chance that I cursed you like a sailor when I hung up the phone. Why? Because I hate you (the general public). Nothing personal.

That sucks dudĀ“. I had the locker rooms, steam room and jacuzzzi cleaned at 4am( before morning rush) 10am( before lunch rush) and 3pm ( before Primetime) and I still wouldn't go in the steam room or jacuzzi personally.

99.9% of the things people pay me to program, you can learn how to program yourself with like 2 months of studying.

"Hey can you write me a program that goes to websites and saves all the pictures off that website to my hard drive?"

when went to high school i worked at at grocery store. you really need to check the experation date of your milk, bread, and check your eggs. more than half the time the trucks would come late and eggs would break in the cartons on the way. also it is better to just bag your stuff. the baggers do not care about your food. oh yeah by the way most stop and shop that sell electronics do not have a security system for them.

Do you hate a store that sells lottery tickets? Heres what you do:

Go in and ask the clerk for a ticket with 20 plays and 20 draws. Make sure you're holding a $20 bill when you say this. While it sounds like it'll be a $20 lottery ticket, it will actually print out 4 $100 lottery tickets that are non-refundable. Exclaim that you don't have $400 and leave. You just cost that store $400!
