OMG! You have GOT to read this Facebook post from SD's fiance!!!

So SD's 24 y/o fiance who she's known for 3 months just started a job at a warehouse 4 days ago. Previous to that he apparently had a landscaping business with his brother. I have no idea what the "landscaping" consisted of. He makes it sound like he is such a hero for doing what he's doing. Oh and how much he misses her now that they can't be together 24/7. Yeah dude, it's called a JOB! Just read below and tell me your opinion. The only thing I changed was SD's name the rest of the wording is his. Note his use of the word "and" as "An". Does he REALLY think that is how you spell it???????? And that it's capitalized??

"Pullin 8 hour swing shifts with the occasional overtime, is so new to me. I get home tired as f*** some nights, awake as f*** others. It’s definitely a big change, but It’s rly good money, An I know it means being able to provide for my fiancé An I. At times it’s VERY hard not being able to see her as often as I would like, but I’m building a foundation for SD An my future, An that makes all the sore muscles, all the pain of missing her, An the weird hours all the more worth it. I’m so proud of myself for adulting An doing what’s right for me an SD, as well as I know she is proud of me. Adulting is hard, stressful, tiring, An time consuming, but it’s so worth the hard work. I love you baby, everything I’m doing, it’s for us, it’s for our future, it’s for the life we deserve"

Yeah, he wrote all this after

Yeah, he wrote all this after only working 4 days. If he's already tired, sore, and thinking that "adulting is hard work", how is he going to handle it a few months down the road when it doesn't seem so glamorous that he's doing all this for her? His "true love, his baby, beautiful fiance" because as he's said, "without her, I'm nothing".

Oh come on, really?? Look at how entertaining the posts are! I have shared that post with my coworkers, friends, sister, mother and get the exact same reaction from all of them. "That was written by a 24 year old?" "He sounds like a real catch" "They were made for each other then if she's proud of him getting a job at 24 and she can't keep one" "Make sure to take copious notes when you meet this winner this weekend".

And it's $18/hr which he thinks is "really good money". That only adds up to about $37,000/year. Yes it's sustainable but it's not "really good". Especially if SD isn't working or if she is, she's just a barista who makes far less than that.

Yes, but it's not like he is the only guy to do this and writes a whole paragraph on how hard it is but it is so worth it so they can start a life together. And he posts about how much he misses SD and SD posts about how much she misses him because he has to be at a job for 8 hours! Come on!! They are both still in this huge infatuation phase and they want to get married?? They have no idea what it is like to "adult" if he is already saying having a full time job is hard! What are bills and paying rent going to be like??

And what kills me is that

And what kills me is that people responded to his post with "Proud of you", "Great job buddy. It's definitely worth it in the long run", "Keep it up. So happy and proud of you" and even his father wrote "Love you and proud of you". He is 24 years old and got a job at a warehouse and you'd swear he was doing something nobody else has ever done! And that line "Adulting is hard, stressful, tiring, An time consuming, but it’s so worth the hard work." REALLY?? So you think you're a hero for "adulting" at 24?? Can't wait to see what week 2 of workign brings! Also, can't wait to meet this gem this weekend when they come up to visit! Of course, he'll probably be so beat from working I don't know how they will manage Smiling

modern schools reward all

modern schools reward all children regardless of performance. those excelling get the same reward as those who do or can do nothing.

its part of the horrid self esteem movement. work does not count. the only things that matter are how you feel about.

newsflash: the real world is not like this.

its no wonder kids graduate from high school demanding hand outs from society or their parents.
