    That sucks to get sacked, but, its the end of the world, so not much to worry about, right?

    Just a part time retail job for while in college. I was there 4 1/2 years though, so it was kind of sudden, although not surprising with the slow winter sales incoming. I was fairly sick of the job at this point anyway, so I'm actually relieved. Motivation to find a job closer to home now that I'm in school full time again.

    Northern Indiana. I don't NEED one (If you are asking for like legal reasons). But I do need one eventually to keep making my car/insurance payments + expenses.

    Think of it as a chance to step up. Try to use your school's resources to find a job, hopefully in your field/major.

    Affirmative. an on-campus job relating to my field of study is a possibility, but maybe not until next school year.

    When do young people typically get their first car in your area?

    Curious for responses from others throughout Europe.

    Typically in America, most young people get a car from 16-18. Some are just given one from their parents. Some work and save. Some share with their siblings.

    I was 18, a month or so away from graduating. It was a piece of crap, 88 Chevy Cavalier.

    Well, Fired with cause per attendance. Attendance issues caused per school scheduling issues.

    Can I have your old job?

    Didn't you know you had passed the final warning mark for attendance?

    I'd have been going to work every day with a resignation letter in my pocket in anticipation of being pulled into the office.

    Well some do get cars from their parents at 18 - where they can legally drive.

    University students usually dont have cars. People who work after high school might have.

    So other than this post, is there anything interesting about this story? I have a feeling there isn't. AMAs are usually for interesting things.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.
