Exact same thing I thought. It's like he copy pasted that from HR's powerpoint presentation.

You would be surprised not all companies/positions get decent benefits. That being said, it was from memory. Can I have a cookie?

Edit: And not all of that are benefits presented by HR. A lot of it comes down to the department/manager.

I just graduated college yesterday, but I work in a (not my own) family owned pizza place with a handful of employees all from the same family. We've been a pizza place for 40 years now under the same family, so we do great business. I deliver pizza, prep food, clean the place, pretty much a utility man there. I work part time there and make great money doing it. I drive my own car, work my own hours, its a great deal. I'm leaving for basic on Sept 3rd this summer, to which will start my real job / real benefits etc as a civil engineer in the Air Force.

Very personable coworkers. I work in a single building with tons of different types of workers and people. We are like a small Western Town. lol

Lots of down time is nice usually. lately I've been going crazy in my office from boredom.

Why are you so mad at my generation? We'll be the ones to bail out the financial mess the generations before us created. And when you start collecting SS checks, remind yourself to thank me. You're welcome ahead of time.

Even though every older generation derides the younger generation, we're the ones that have to deal with their continual years of fvcking up, lol

If you really want to be a stick in an old persons craw, when they bitch about the current generation, genuinely ask them who raised the current generation?

Nice choice of career. Are you going OCS I presume? I've been considering going in to be a warrant officer to fly helicopters. Talked to recruiters all through college and these days it keeps crossing my mind.

Hmm I'll keep that one in the back pocket. I'm sure I'll get a lot of dumbfounded responses.

Edit: badfast, what generation do you reside from? I'm not asking you for your age, just a general time frame.
