That is really awful... but it seems like a lot of people are that way these days. :(
I know that's why I stuck it out at my current job, even when it was awful: I didn't think I'd be able to find anything else. And I'm just a high school graduate and wouldn't have expected anything more than minimum wage.
I have to walk now. Snow was once awesome, but it's just a hindrence when you have to walk in it for 2 miles. I'm glad we were just south of the huge snowstorm that just tore through Nebraska and Colorado.
