In many libraries you would run into line issues though.

You need to get out more and join us in the real world. In the last 3 years, I've moved twice to other states. All the while being employed! Same for the husband. Amazing isn't it?

So when do you plan to stay at one city and one job for a long period of time?

And? That's 2 hours you have to fill out online applications. And most librarians will actually let you use the computer longer if no one is waiting or if it is for a job search. Some librarians will even help you out a bit with places to look and how to use the computer.

I've had the same job for 6 years and the husband has had his for 16 years. Oh SNAP! So what are you babbling about? Proving once again you don't know much.

which is why no one works at target.
I was in target just last week and saw several people working. They're the ones wearing red shirts with name tags that say "Target" and a name below, right? There were several of these people standing by computers and belts with items cruising down them. These people handed other people bags that said "Target" on them. Do these red shirted, name tag wearing people NOT work there? If not, how did they get access to the computers and why are they handing out bags filled with items?

I had college classes that were an hour, some much longer.

One class I had in HS was FOUR hours long, one hour in theory, and three in Lab.
Brace yourself....I had 6 hour long classes in culinary school and 5 hour long classes in graphic design. I managed to attend all of my classes and earn a 4.0. Thank god we're all not like WPD!

What you fail to realize is when you are in class you have no choice but to devote your attention for 45 mins or longer. When you are home you have the option to do something else

Understand what I am trying to explain to you?
