[QUOTE="VG_Addict, post: 1581423, member: 34516"]Maybe if the advice I got were good.[/QUOTE]
I just want to say this before I leave this thread and don't look back: that is so rude. At least people are trying to help you even though we've tried before. If you would just listen, you'd find the advice quite sound based on what we know. If you don't want advice, don't ask for it. If you do want advice, then listen to it. You don't have to take it. We don't know you. We don't know your life. Ultimately what you do in your life is up to you. But don't spit on the people that are trying to help, otherwise who will ever want to help you again?

Maybe my bad attitude is the reason I'll have trouble finding a job.

[QUOTE="VG_Addict, post: 1581417, member: 34516"]Since when do sales and marketing not require math?[/QUOTE] Sales & marketing have very little at all to do with managing numbers; those jobs are mostly about persuading people. With experience, they eventually pay great too. You should be less concerned with your math grades, & more concerned with how you listen & react to people; those skills are more significant--not only to sales & marketing jobs, but to human interaction in general.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

^^Good. No one cares.

Nobody at VGF was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a magic charm hangin out his ass. You ask for advice, here, as you have before, and then sh*t on said advice, as you have before. [REDACTED]

I forgive you, VGA, but you have to actually learn from this experience now. Too much of our interaction with you in threads like this has been repeating the same thing over and over again without any of our words sinking in. If you are really sorry for how you responded to those who were offering advice in this thread, then in the future you will make an effort to listen and respect the people who took the time to help. Deal?

We're just feeling a little snubbed right now. You give us time, we'll give you time. It'll be fine.

You probably think I just want to have pity parties, not advice.

At times you certainly make it seem that way. I think you just need to learn how to accept the help that people are offering you.

You're doing it again right off the bat. You can't just completely ignore anything a person is telling you just to reinforce that things will actually just go down this pessimistic reality you've set your mind towards. It won't help you at all.

^This. You're already blatantly ignoring everything I've said to you.

OK, I'll do better.

My mom says she thinks I'd be a good medical transcriptionist.
