      Hope the fun’s worth it while the interest piles up on those student loans! Hard to contribute to the tax rolls when you’re writing off student loan interest on a retail wage! Rah rah 47%!

      Don’t they already dream up this stuff by themselves?
      Antiquing? If it’s an old car swap meet or a flea market; otherwise I’ll just tag along out of necessity. :)

    I haven’t seen her site yet but she obviously has a talent for creative writing. Might be funnier if she inserted some negative or cutting humor but what the heck. The most un-funny part of the story is this quote, “A recent Temple University anthropology graduate, Pride is currently living in Philadelphia working in retail…”. It is unfortunate that her education isn’t providing an interesting and gainful employment experience. I wish her the very best of luck and good fortune.

      How did you conclude that “her education isn’t providing an interesting and gainful employment experience”?

        I bet she gets a job out of IT…. well paid , too. VERY clever. girl

        Because she earned a degree in anthropology and is currently working in “retail”. Everyone who has EVER worked in retail knows it is neither interesting (as compared to anthropology) nor at just above minimum wage is it gainful. Only a complete Ideeut would make the claim that being underpaid as a store clerk is gainful or interesting.

          The only reason for an education is to make money? God help us.

    Better yet, the website should also show the underpaid Asian textile worker who produced the clothing.

      I don’t believe you are correct with your assumption. Part of Bean’s attraction is that they pay there foreign manufacturers pretty well, compared to Wally world for example.

  • Ah, “The Way Life Should Be” indeed.

    Another quality non-revenue generating project brought to you by a card-carrying member of the Obama generation! You voted for this, America!

      do you listen to yourself? can you understand it?
      Now Obama gets credit for “Your LL Bean Boyfriend” ? wow — LOL

        Lucy; It’s an expression of the tea party mentality: if it ain’t making money, then it ain’t no good. They are clueless about just plain feeling good. They like suffering. It’s a christian thing.

      So everything you do, all the time, always, generates revenue?
