    It seems like the coffee room is 90% under twenty five.

    #960524

    Is that a problem? And must everyone under 25 be considered a “teen”?

    so you could spend your spare time working as well. I just got a job as a cashier. I dont want to say where because otherwise you might find out who I am. I am an adult though. if your in new york, try luach, parnassah network, ou job board. if your not in new york for sure still try the ou job board, but depending on the size of your community, there might be a bulletin somewhere, an newsletter or something of that nature. when I was in high school, would go to my schools job coach towards the end of the year and got one job through there and that started off my career, I am now on my fifth job and planning on this being permanent. yes, some was volunteer work, but your chessed hours count on your resume as if it were an internship.

    You want to be a cashier permanently?

    Roar I’m a dinosaur!. But seriously guys, going back to the topic of teens vs. adults, some would say that teens are just young adults. Also some would say that adults are just older teens.

    And concerning the ball game, I would like the privilege to play catcher.

    Cant we play kick-ball, baseball is for men….and i think most of us are women…..but then again kick-ball isn’t tzniyus to play with men….

    I sometimes think all of you are old men and ladies sitting in rocker chairs bored to death.

    I vote for 16-inch softball.

    #960539

    I second that! And now that we’ve switched games, I can still call catcher!

    Vougue- are you really a cashier? If you like it, great! (DIIING! that’ll be 31.99, sir.”)But you have so much other potential lying dormant on that job, no? You’re smart, very knowledgeable, witty, and engaging. seriously.

    I think it should be teens vs. Old people…..it seems like anyone who isnt a teen is an old person sitting in a rocking chair. And anyone who isnt sitting there must be a teen

    Well, I’m not a teen, so I must be an old person. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to buy myself a rocking chair. So, if someone would be so kind, just ship it to the CR and I’ll have them forward it.

    It’s funny how rocking chairs are associated with old people while none of the old people I know have one. The old people I know are old enough that they consider themselves old.

    playtime, yes, I really am a cashier, the job is actually a lot harder than you think because there are like twenty different types of taxes for food and its hard to remember sometimes which tax to press. also I get to use a walkie talkie and I am still learning how to do it.

    #960550

    The only people I know who use rocking chairs are young mothers rocking their babies to sleep!

    I worked as a cashier for a few months. It really is a difficult job. You have to be on your feet for hours at a time, and you have to remember how to process EBT, SNAP, WIC, check, cash, credit card, nonprofit tax exemption, university department charge line, etc etc. You have to be careful not to double scan items because then you have to void one and you may need a manager’s key to do that. Then there are all the produce codes that you have to remember. You can look them up, but it takes longer and sometimes someone will put something on your belt that you just don’t recognize and you have to actually ask the customer what it is! And then, when you’re not going crazy with all of this, you have long stretches of time with no one coming through your line, and you’re not allowed to read magazines, have a snack, or do anything that might make you less bored. If you make any kind of mistake they will micro-manage you and put you on mandatory audit and hold you accountable for every last penny. One time a customer handed me a penny that she found on the floor and management yelled at me for being one penny over!

    Kol hakavod, Vogue. I didn’t last long in that job; I hope you do better than I did!

    I’d suggest saving money from being a cashier for school. Look into different professions- accounting, health professions, social work, etc.

    #960552

    At minimum wage and variable hours, it will take you a loooong time to save enough money! If you are interested in higher education, apply for scholarships or take out loans (or a combination of the two).

    A college education in NYC can be obtained for $5K a year, give or take, through any of the constituent colleges of the City University of New York system. Baruch College is one of the finest business schools, City College one of the finest schools for the sciences.

    We also have a great Jewish Studies faculty. Prof. Sharon Flatto, an expert on the Noda beYehuda and wife of Rabbi Ysoscher Katz (Maggid shiur at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah), Rabbi Adam Mintz (an expert on eruvin and a well-known MO rabbi on the UWS), Rabbi Rigoberto Vinas (a MO rabbi in Yonkers, and expert on the Anusim, as well as inyanei safrut and giyur), Rabbi Yitzhak Berger (a MO rabbi and expert on Radak, who used to teach at Drisha and Yeshiva of Flatbush), Prof. Robert Shapiro (an expert on the Shoah and a pillar of the Modern Orthodox community in Baltimore), Prof. Sara Reguer (an expert on Jewish women’s issues and JOFA speaker), and quite a few other scholars teach within CUNY, and many frum Jews study across CUNY. Brooklyn College and Queens College have particularly large frum populations and are serviced by JLIC rabbis, and Baruch College is also serviced by Rabbi Miller of the JCRC.

    I don’t know where you live, but is there a community college in your area?

    In Monsey, I know of a bunch of people (and no, I don’t know Lipa Schmeltzer) who to go Rockland Community College either for Associate’s degrees in their chosen professions or as a stepping stone.

    What’s good about it is that you pay by the credit and not by the semester- you can just take one class now and you’ll have those credits for the rest of your life.
