yeah, wow, you expect 1 person to do 3 different jobs at once, and you have trouble finding people skilled at 3 different tasks ? I wonder why? Even when you do find these people, working them triple hard will lead to faster burnout, which isn't going to work out for the long term.

I might ask my doctor if he is also skilled at auto mechanics and computer repair!

Gee why is it so hard to just train people to do the cross platform work oh that's right the companies are too cheap and want their employees to pay for the companies benefit. It's this insane catch 22 that is going on in Corporate America that says they won't hire unemployed people since if you were any good you'd be employed by someone else except that mentality is no longer relevant in this economy where many competent and decent workers got swept out to sea with the tide. I swear HR people are the new real estate agents, mortgage brokers, used car salesmen of 2010 and not doubt beyond

Hey John, have you EVER gotten a real paycheck?

If so, was it for more than the minimum wage?

Have you EVER worked a full (40+) hour workweek?

Why don't you START to think about employment?

The productive class is tired of paying for parasites like you.

Move on, Colby. Help make your apartment complex safe for the kids.

Creepy, peepy people with audio and video recorders sneaking around make people uncomfortable. No wonder your neighbors want you out before you go postal.
