Comment Re:Sure, to lower paying jobs (Score 1) 674

Um, the reason they pay "more" for telemarketing is because the job is unethical. It's higher risk. If you want a safe, ethical job, well there's plenty of competition for those so they don't have to pay as much. You're basically selling your soul for a little more money.

So don't tell us about how they couldn't be employed elsewhere because they can, if they're willing to take an ethical job.

Thanks, I can see your initials are LK just by reading the username which is at the top of your post. In fact, EVERY post has the writer's username at the top of it. So why then, unlike everyone else in this forum, do you copy those initials into the body of your post? Are you some kind of narcissist that can't wake up to the fact that no one else on this forum puts sigs in the body of their post? Especially not something as fucking lame as a copy of your own username which we already know?

Crosswords, Jumble, Cryptograms. Computers have not caught up to the ability to take your daily puzzles outside with you while you eat lunch. Ok you CAN do that, with a laptop or a smartphone, but those are too expensive for the task and far less convenient. Sometimes pen and paper is better.
