    Just a thought...

    I work in a nightclub and usually work behind the bar, but, some nights I help out with the bussying (collecting glasses etc). which I don't mind doing because it helps the team out but there are some young queens on the scene that snigger and look down on me, even though the reason for getting a part time job in a nightclub was so I had some free time to go back to do my masters in architecture (was working full time previously).

    My question is; Do you look down on people that are in my position even though they may be working another job/studying to have a qualification that is often going to rank their future job higher than the general audience that frequents the scene?

    I never took a critical view of who picked up the glasses....unless he was fast fingers freddy and took my drink before I was done with it and I was on the dance floor and it was left unprotected.

    I just felt sorry for all the guys working in the bars before smoking was banned. Breathing smoke day after day.

    By all means, don't give any creedence to what some queen thinks. To do so would be reason enough for anyone to look down on you for not having confidence.

    I've work in the bar scene for almost 10 years now, you'll always run into these bitch queens. Half of them can't even hold a job, you have a job because they got pased over. icon_wink.gif

    Why are you letting some NOBODY get to you? Especially a queen??

    Your doing your job, I applaud you for that for this is just a job as you work and support yourself for your future career.icon_biggrin.gifThe only thing that matters is from people who support you for what you need to do to become that architect that you want to be.

    There is nothing un-dignified about working for a living. Any jerk that doesn't get that is just a jerk.

    I would not let some kids that are going on 12 get to you. They're just brats. Consider the source, then, giggle to yourself that you'll be the one NOT working retail, and the one with the master's degree. In your mind's eye, you can tell them to go fuck themselves and have the last laugh. You'll have your BMW, and they'll be limp-wristed at the flower shop. Seems like you're on the right track.

    your question makes you come across as if you're placing yourself higher than those queens that look down at you...

    I have to agree with yo_mamali.

    You are trying to justify why you are doing the job. If you, yourself look down on the job, what do you expect from others?

    If I don't know you, no, I don't look down on you. However, for my brief stint of waiting tables, after getting to know a few of my coworker and find out that they are in their 30's with little to no college education and dream of one day getting into the management program at the restaurant (think Waiting. It's not that far from the truth), while supporting more than 1 illegitimate child and doing nothing but working all day so they have money to drink with that night, then I start to look down on you.

    Are you sure they were sniggering about you?

    I have a close friend who always thinks people are talking about her. It doesn't make for an enjoyable life.

    I would have thought that gay guys in a nightclub are far more likely to be saying, "I'd hit that," and giggling than sniggering at the person making room for their elbows.

    I have been putting applications in everywhere all over town for a 2nd job/BUSSING position in restaraunt/bar(s). Wouldn't shock me if some folks snickered or had a comment to jab at me for being one, but hopefully in these bad economical times folks won't judge for such things. A job is a job! icon_confused.gif

    It's not cool to look down on anyone!..Whether they are studying or not!

    The fact someone is studying and whatever future position they might hold, doesn't even enter into it...

    I agree. A job is a job. Chances are that they have or have had a job that is basically the same or worse than bussing tables.
    I got a job helping the housekeepers here on campus taking out trash and such. So dont worry, you could have my job where people just throw trash at you.
