Looking for more advanced barista jobs is so discouraging right now. Five different listings said, “Must have 2+ years of quality barista experience ” or “Must be able to pour rosetta”. I had to look it up and and rosetta just means latte art. It feels like they’re intentionally trying to block lowly unskilled scrubs like me so that they won’t have to train anyone.
Which, if you think about it, is bullshit because when you put that in practice, you create a world of haves and have-nots. The people who have expertise get to go work awesome jobs where people respect them and people who don’t have the skills yet (but could learn) are forced to work their asses off in what amount to fast-food positions and get treated like shit by everyone.
Excuse me for not knowing how to make a little leaf in the foam yet or perfectly compact beans, you elitist fucking assholes. Maybe people will act like coffee is a culinary artform even more than they already do if you exclude and crap on even more people!

Ever hear the term “SJW”? It means “social justice warrior,” and it refers specifically to people who point out racism or sexism in movies, video games, and other pop culture. Those people are considered worse than other types of critics because instead of just pointing out that a movie has flaws, they’re accusing people who like it of being awful.
Except they’re not, of course. If someone points out that the alternator belt in your car is slipping, they’re not accusing you of being some kind of mustache-twirling, white cat-stroking supervillain for having car problems. They’re not accusing you of anything. They’re talking about your fucking car.”

I don’t know what’s been happening over at Cracked lately, but damn.
idk why introverts have a reputation of being quiet and shy people who’d rather be alone. have you ever been friends with an introvert who’s decided you’re worth their time? we turn into the clingiest, most needy pieces of shit on the planet because there’s so few people we actually can stand
That’s exactly what all the people should know.
