This was one reply pretty much summarizes why nobody gives a fork about them getting their walking papers:

Can’t disagree with that.

  1. my reply to poor laid off “journalist”- welcome to reality azzhole… its also called poetic justice..

    1. They fling enough s*it around already, I don’t think a profession where that is a physical possibility if they don’t do their job properly is a great idea.
      Maybe lawncare and maintenance? Street cleaning? Grocery store checker? (Much less dependent on math these days with scanners.)

      1. Ever add, say two cents, (or really, any amount of change,) that ’rounds’ YOUR change to an even twenty five cent ‘boundry’ or even to a ‘dollar’ boundary so you get LESS ‘loose’ change back?

        These days a check out person just freezes, ESPECIALLY if they’ve already run the transaction and are working to give you your change back.

        Most have NO CLUE what you’re doing.

        That you are helping THEM out so they don’t use up their change drawer, and you, so you have less crap in your pockets…

        I still do RARELY run across a checker that picks up on it almost instantly, but I’ll give you one guess what ‘generation’ they are…

  2. That was well said. I would add, just to drive the point home:
    Nobody wants to buy what you’re trying to sell. (Of course, neo-Marxist ideologues might not see this will have consequences; the real world is less forgiving than journalism school.)

  3. I would say “learn to code.” but the hissy fit they will throw when they find out coding is in binary…

  4. I just re-read an article from 2009, about languages. One it describes is Tucaya, a language spoken in the Eastern Amazon jungle. It has “…a feature that would make any journalist tremble. Tucaya requires verb-endings on statements to show how the speaker knows something. … Evidential languages force speakers to think hard about how they learned what they say they know.”

    What I found interesting was the opening comment, that being forced to justify what they are saying is something that would scare journalists. Quite a revealing statement.
