My degree in Creative Youth Literary Illustration (Drawing the pictures for kid's books) is probably useless... In this podunk nowhere town it is anyway. Heck I've had the B.A. for almost 4 years and I'm still stuck at Crap-All-In-One-Mart. Hah. ^_^
It's all in the wording though; you can really impress people just by changing a few words. The simple description for my degree is "Children's Illustration" and a lot of people are like "...What's that? you draw pictures of kids?"
So I use the fancier term so they just get dumbfounded and leave me alone. *head-desk*
Speaking of head-desk...did you know that banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour?
So you're not a cashier...you're a Transactional Product Exchange Technician.
Yay for big words!
