To start things off I want to say that this is just a personal rant, I just need to blow off some steam. Read it if you want, if you feel like responding I would like some feedback. Leading, the position I want would easily double my salary. DOUBLE! I work at a small gas station in a small town as a cashier and as food prep. The hours are hard and the pay is low, but I really like the people I work with. I have been looking for a better paying job for the reasons everyone looks for a better paying job, money is tight and I like having money. Me me me, blah blah blah. Here is the deal, over the last 18 months I have busted my butt and become the most valuable non-management employee, mastering every facet of every job in that little place. I have helped double the sales in the deli as well as improve the whole store in every way. Everyone I work with comes to me for help first, and I feel like they respect me a great deal. My boss, the general manager is leaving for another job and I am the only one in the company who is applying for her position. Unfortunately for me the position is going to be open to public applicants as well. This is concerning, because I am young. I look older than I am, and am often told I act much older than I even look; but I fearful for the moment of the interview where they ask me my age and I am forced to tell them that I am only 24. How many people would hand the reigns of an entire store over to a person who can't legally rent a car? The worst part is I am truly qualified for the position. If I don't get the job I don't know if I could bring myself to stay. /Rant
RANT APPROACHING! As I mentioned in the just bought thread I have a new laptop with windows 8 as the OS. After a fair amount of consideration I would rather have windows 7. Anyway,if I double click on a .avi file (example) the OS brings up xbox video or whatever it is as opposed to windows media player, which is one of those cute full screen "apps". Of course it errors out. Go figure. Thus I get a screen showing me the latest movies and related BS. In order to get back to my "desktop" I have to mash esc, which brings me to the new "start menu". Give me minimize / maximize / close or else.

Here comes the fun part. This laptop has the F keys mapped to the "media" keys.
