Makin tendies, first time...
shieett son, honestly, that stove is better. thats the exact kind i had before this one.
i seen the glass and was like FUCK YEAH
but now that ive had it for a year, i've noticed that the glass has more pros than cons.
The glass get's dirty SO EASILY. Anything you cook and it gets dirty. You have to clean it well every time its used. Meanwhile, the coil one seemed to stay clean for a few cooks before you needed to put some elbow grease into it
secondly, without those coils, the pans are free to slide and move about the glass. so when you're stirring, unless you're holding the pan down, the entire thing turns with it. highly annoying. also, the glass stove top takes HOURS to cool down so you get burned easily if not paying attention. and it takes a while to heat up shit. the coil would boil my water in like 3 minutes, vs 8 on the glass top.
so yeah, they're not as good as they look. thats pretty much the only positive..the glass looks nice. sleak. but thats where it ends
I grew up with a glasstop stove in the household and didn't learn to appreciate it until I moved out and got an apartment with a shitty electric coil stove. These razor blade scrapers plus a little acetone were amazing for cleaning tough caked-on material.
Yes, pans can slip around on glass, but at least you don't need to worry about the glass constantly warping and creaking as a burner heats up. The coils on my stove have become warped to the point that many pans don't make good uniform contact if they're not heavy enough, so they just don't heat evenly without rotating the pan every few minutes.
Also, having an older shitty electric stove, it only applies power to the coils periodically so they don't even maintain a consistent temperature at one setting.
Not to mention, having a glasstop means you can put hot pans and sheets anywhere where there's space on it. On a coil stove, you can only put hot pans directly on the coils or you risk damaging/scraping the paint. With glass you have a nice large flat area to put cookie sheets or pot roasts, doubling as a nice square of heat-resistant counter-top.

Friend suggested making an electric car out of a first gen nissan micra. The first and only electic car I drove was a nissan leaf and I was honestly surprised of how good it was considering how it looks.
Most don't care because the name is german. Their models are usually designed in europe, like the "buick regal", but have some gm born models too like the franchised chevy trax/buick encore. Some models are completely own, now they gon be peugeots.
Not here either, just won the european COTY award though.
Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you then. I never understood why part time jobs were such a thing in amoerica.
Nice that some companies are actually making a good faith attempt to produce a decent electric car. Before the Model S hit the market the only electrics by major US companies were over-priced half-assed garbage. 80000+ for a car that needs hours for a full charge just to get a whopping 50 mile range. An early used base Model S is a steal for its specs compared to the competition, not to mention the excellent long-term software support Tesla provides.
Guess we'll see what they come up with. Hardly see any branded peugeots around here, always had a soft-spot for the 206 even if it had a reputation for just being nothing but lemons. Are you allowed to test drive the cars yourself at all? I'd imagine your job keeps you really up to date on current vehicle trends. I take it your experience with selling consumer electronics comes in handy for this position.
Even though the CS job market is wavering, things in tech change fairly quickly and other adjacent fields like embedded systems are still in hot demand for all levels of positions. There's even been more help-wanted signs floating around and Colorado passed a minimum wage hike last voting cycle, so even if takes a little longer to get a career-type job, being underemployed won't be nearly as brutal.
Part time jobs, especially in retail and food-service, are kinda treated as a rite of passage for working-class americans. It's difficult to appreciate a fine well-paying job with oodles of benefits and good management if you don't have a really shitty job to contrast it against.
Though I do night-stocking which actually isn't so bad, albeit a little monotonous at times.
