The Question Club
First section. If you're a student, please omit this section, unless you have a part-time job. This section is strictly for people who have paid employment of some kind.
1. What is your job?
2. On a scale of 1-10, how stressful would you say it is?
3. On a scale of 1-10, how much training/education would you say you need to work the job (not what you have, what you need for that job specifically)?
4. Do you think you get paid fairly? Why or why not? And if you don't mind disclosing, also how much you get paid.
Second section. For everybody.
5. Say you lived in a house with a bunch of people. There's six of you. Your lease is up at the end of this month, and four people (including yourself) have already moved out. You've barely been living there the past two months anyways, but you still have a bunch of stuff at the house. But for all intents and purposes, you live with your significant other a block away.
Do you come back to the house with your SO, cook a meal with food that you brought over, not throw the garbage away properly and leave the dishes for your former housemates to do (including a pot of rice that you burnt to a pot that one of them owns)? One of my former housemates just did this today, without even informing me that he was going to be coming here (I was at school/work all day, and came home to dishes that I hadn't recalled leaving there, and my remaining roommate is out of town today). What should I say to him, if anything? I knew it was him because I called his place and talked to his girlfriend, but he was sleeping. I consider it fairly rude, especially since he left the dirty dishes for me to do. If he'd come and gone without me noticing, that would be fine, but he burnt one of my pots!
6. For those of you who work/have worked with children: How do I get them to listen to me?? I've been working with kids for six years (since I was 15 and I'm 21 now), and still now, if they're the misbehaving sort, they won't listen to me no matter what I do. I do all the same things that others I work with do, but for some reason they'll eventually listen to them, but they won't ever eventually listen to me, even if I use the same techniques. It's especially relevant now, being as quite a few of the kids I currently work with at an after-school program are chronic misbehavers (if that's a word, if not, I'm sure you know what I mean). But the same problem persists. Argh.
