The conversation went something like this
Megan: By the way dad, I am going to quit my job.
Me: Oh? Really? You mean your dream job? The one you wanted of all the places you applied?
Megan: Ya. I can't take it any more.
Me: What do you mean?
Megan: The people there are just so immature. And the high school drama is just too much for me.
Me: Well, why don't you wait until you find a new one before you quit?
Megan: I can't take it any more.
So off she goes with her friend from work to pick up her paycheck and quit. She comes back 4 hours later.
Megan: I didn't quit my job.
Megan: Ya. I went shopping instead. You know when I am depressed, I shop.
Me: Boy, I feel sorry for your husband. So what did you buy?
Megan: (She rattles off about $100 worth of clothes. I have no idea what she was saying. It might as well have been Spanish, I have never learned.)
Me: Wow nice stuff. How are you going to buy more?
Megan: That is why I didn't quit.
I don't know. Maybe, just maybe, it is sinking in.

Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
You are lucky to have one that can at least figure it out. You should be proud.
I can't tell you how many people I have known who just quit and don't even think about the future consequences of not having a J-O-B.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
My daughter got it.... no matter how much she hates her job right now, she has a house payment to make.
LOL.....Sorry, but one day she will learn, no matter what you do, or where you work, there will always be the immature people, and stupid drama going on.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

My daughters are following behind your girls 'lead'. I almost can't wait til they get thier first 'real' job. My girls only hear every fifth word my wife and I say to 'em when it concerns life lessons......like jobs and money.
My sister had a great wake up call after we told her that after she gets married the coporate American Express card gets turned off. She asked "How am I able to shop on a Policeman salary?" Reply . You don't
She once lost her AX card and we never reported it stolen. WHY? The theif spent less than she did!!
Will be all week
Cant stand people that quit then realize they had no money saved up and they dont have another job lined up.. so they end up taking a job they make less at and it still sucks, imagine that..
At least she has a job. I graduated in may and got nothin.
I do have a Homeland Security federal agent exam on the 24th though. I need to start studying for that.
