Retail jobs are pretty soul crushing if you have the wrong mix of bad customers, annoying coworkers, and uncaring managers.

Ahhh yeah I've heard a couple stories before. It's pretty dumb how all these customers act so entitled though. You're buying groceries...don't expect them to be your slaves...

My printer problem is that it guzzles ink like an SUV guzzles gas, and it's too expensive to keep our color ink cartridge filled... we pretty much have to print everything in black and white now.

Printers are how computer companies make money, with those super expensive ink cartridges. >_o

Also, if you have an inkjet printer, instead of getting the paper printed, it's a robot orgy session, with a bit of printing going on.

That's why I like laser printers, even if they only come in black and white. That gets the job doooone.

And yeah, why do ink cartridges cost so much? I'm buying ink, not a house...

Because that's how they get you. Some computers even come with free printers, they make up the money by having their own brand of ultra-expensive ink that you have to buy to keep it working.

Wouldn't a good price and functionality and some awesome customer service make more money than doing that?

Customer service costs them money, it doesn't make them money. Although I've bought a lot more expensive printers based on what I would save on ink cartridges, because higher-quality printers have less expensive cartridges since they don't need to make up the loss of money with cartridges like the free/cheap ones do.

Why spend all that money on the cartridges? Just get refill kits.

Lot cheaper... Unless you spill ink all over the floor/carpet/yourclothes/thecat/whatever.

Some cartridges can't be refilled though, so its best to get the refill kit first, then a printer that uses cartridges that you can refill.

I've never heard of refill kits...maybe it's more common over there? Or maybe I just don't know enough about printers, haha.

I haven't seen many of them in stores, although you can find them in most secondary outlet magazines, and with a quick Google search.

Also, I don't live in the UK, if thats what your thinking.

Oh well if they're not in stores then that's why. I don't care enough about printers to bother with finding alternative filling methods online or in magazines.

Yeah. I really wish my printer had refill kits. A pack of ink is like $70. A tad ridiculous.

Maybe he's one of those weird people that update it whenever they visit a new place, so he's in vacation in London. That was my guess :(

Bad economy is bad.

They're having open interviews at KFC today

I never understood this whole 'I can't get a job' thing. If you expect to walk into a shop/business and expect to get a job, then you are doing it wrong.

The reason I worked hard in my academic life, is so I can have a great CV and qualifications, so I can get a job easier. There are so many jobs out there, but if you have no qualifications, then you have to look at yourself to blame. Maybe I am just weird like that...

It's weird to change your location to somewhere you're vacationing/visiting because chances are you won't be there for long so you might as well leave the location with where you live.
