  • Why would I have a specific reaction? I would think 'she has a job, good for her"

  • She has a job working as a fry cook ... Everyone has a job whether big or small. It wouldn't faze me at all.

  • Be happy for her that shes working. even if she was a bitch in the past, No one should struggle the way people have been these past couple of years.

  • this recession is knocking everyone down it seems. it takes alot for a person to take a job beneath their past position but the bills have to be paid. makes me wonder if we ALL dont need to be reminded of how good we have it in America. why are others flocking to our country "taking" jobs beneath us. seems OUR attitude needs to change. just my 2 cents.
