We Gotta Do Something About This

In December, Dora joined the ranks of unemployed college graduates.  Her most promising job offer thus far has been a management position at Wal-Mart.  Yes, Wal-Mart.  She said they expressed interest in her because she has a Spanish degree and they needed a Spanish-speaker, to which I replied: "Dora!  They're going to have you out there beating Mexicans!!!  That's what Wal-Mart managers do!!!"

I can't stand idly by while my best friend languishes as a Wal-Mart employee in Knoxville, TN.  So, if you or a loved one has any tips for a fluent Spanish speaker that doesn't involve manual labor and/or harassing immigrants, please email me at  


  1. How does she feel about domestic servitude?


  2. That is so, so sad. If you work hard enough to make it through college, you should automatically get a fantastic job.

    On another note...there is an award waiting for you at The Jason Show...

  3. Yeah, do you need a nanny assistant?

  4. How about tutoring until she gets something real. That way she can beat wayward teenagers as opposed to wayward Mexicans.
