Coworker #1: “Is that scale still broken?”
Coworker #2: “No, he fixed it.”
Me: “Yeah, I took it apart and used my electrical engineering skills to fix it.”
Customer: “Oh, you working on your double-E?”
Me: “Ha no, I was just kidding. I have a philosophy degree, which is why I work here.”
Customer: “Well, I guess you can think deeply about the meat.”

    Nice. My roommate — whom I told to get a job at Western — is an unemployed Anthropology major. He was a project manager at GM and now doesn’t know what to do with his life. He found out the government will give him up to $45,000 over three years to go back to school for something else, because he qualifies as a “displaced auto worker.” He was thinking, nurse? Film crew? Chef? Electrician? And you know what he’s decided on…? Going back for an Economics master’s. So… I think he may be workin’ the meat counter yet!

  2. Economics is actually a degree with job potential.
