Job Application Exams with long answer questions that they could just get the answer to by calling a reference and reading your resume, but no, you have to write a 1000 word essay for each one, over and over.

Are school rivalries big issues in the US? I see all these teen movies and tv shows where there's all this drama over school rivalries, and there's trouble between different cliques - jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, whatever, but I've never seen it first hand. I've always wondered if they're just blowing things out of proportion in the entertainment industry, or if that kind of stuff is actually a big problem in the US.

I can think of "rivalries" my own schools had, but they've always just been light-hearted. When I get together with friends who went to other schools, sometimes we poke fun at each other. I've also never had a problem with cliques. I mean, I've never seen people from the football team chasing "nerds" around and throwing them in lockers. Maybe I'm just naive.

hard to have cliques or any sort of rivalry when there's only 40 or so people spread out over all of canadia. canadianites are probably just happy when they see human beings other than family members.

Or how they make cheerleaders seem so nice and not biznitchy? Ha ha I really dont know why my old school and new school hate each other. At my old school it was a light hearted hate but in heber they dont know that. In heber everyone thinks that people in PC are stoners/snobs/rich people so I get treated like one (I only lived there for 2 years!)

Actually, we 40-or-so people all live in the same community. That way, we can all huddle together and keep each other warm during the months of darkness during the winter.

I thought they quite often made cheerleaders seem "biznitchy" when I've actually known many nice ones.

I wish you much luck, sir. High school can be tough.

Don't know what to suggest. It's hard to believe your entire class is so prejudiced.

...that people don't understand the concept of double doors. You don't have to stand there and wait for someone to go through the door. There's an entire OTHER door right next to it. Use that one.

Mine was doing that and figured out (after 2 years) that it was because the signal was split between the modem & a TV. Disconnected the TV and not a problem since. No TV in my office though.

I hate the old tires on my car

One went flat on Friday, and another on Monday. So now I'm broke from buying new ones and I lost a full afternoon waiting around in the tire store because their inventory screwed up.
