Its not often that I get PO’d about anything, but there are some things that happen which piss me off and I’d rather not share them on my site which can be viewed by employers, so I’ll share them here instead.
1) Why is it so hard to find a part-time job? I think I got more interviews before I was on PEY than after. Am I overqualified or something? 0 responses out of 30 emails? cmon. WTF is up with that?
2) Why can’t I get a loan even when I am employed for 16 months. That guy at RBC really pissed me off today. Apparently I can get a student-line of credit but I can’t get a general purpose loan. Why the hell not? Isn’t debt all the same? Nope, apparently when the purpose is different there’s different criteria, which is bullshit. He had the nerve to tell me I couldn’t get a loan because my work is not full time, it’s ‘temporary’. Why the hell not? I work full time, I make more than some people who work full time do, so why the hell am I automatically denied a loan because of my 16 month employment? Gay ass shit.
3) Why is the UC registrar being such a bitch about me enrolling in RSM100Y1? All I want to do is take that management course which is supposed to be (according to calendar) open to A&S students, space permitting. I already talked with the PEY director about enrolling. I have the money. I have intention to do well to switch majors. It should be no problem for me to enroll, yet they are so hard-headed about letting me in. Apparently, it’s only open to students in Commerce and first year students. Well thats stupid, because 90% of students in Commerce are going to specialize so they are not interested in the major. Why not 4th year students like me? I have the right to enroll in courses earlier so I should have more priority too. Why do I have to get permission from Commerce to do it? Why is it so hard to change my damn major? Other PEY students can take courses just fine, but I have to jump through 30 hoops to do it.
See, I get pissed off when people stand in the way of my goals…and I’ll find one way or another of obtaining my goals so don’t even bother.
