Contradicting the manager wouldn't bother me any. Most of them don't know which end is up. So if by contradict you mean correct the stupid thing the manager said in total ignorance, then yeah that wouldn't bother me, though being the control freaks they are most managers would rather see things done wrong and not be corrected so you put your job in jeopardy by daring to do that. But if it will cost the company half a million to follow the manager's insane ravings then maybe it's worth it. Or not since you get paid the same regardless....the point is a lot of them don't really have a clue. I've seen them make the most bizarre statements that I knew were wrong, but I keep my mouth shut even though I know they are idiots who have no idea what they are talking about. I work behind the scenes to try to fix what they screw up so their vast egos don't pay the price of the decisions made by their tiny brains and things keep working. Yet I get treated like I'm the idiot and in a sense they are right - they take home the big bonuses while being morons and I work my @$$ off to keep things running for them and haven't had a raise from this place yet.

Respect is earned and I respect those who have a clue what the hell they are doing, and that wouldn't be most managers I've seen.

Currently Im just living off of savings and cringe when its the time of month where I pay my rent, car loan, bills, etc...

Is there no work-study program at your college or university? When I was in undergrad, they were very good about hooking up students with things that complement their major. I spent a semester working at the cafeteria because the "good" jobs had been filled at that point, but wrapped up my freshman year as a transcriptionist in Oral History, and then spent the next three years as a Collections Assistant in the museum. It gave me interesting things to talk about in interviews, and good experience. You'll make more money bartending or waitstaffing off-campus, of course, but if you're looking at developing professional skills and a resume, it's something that you might look into.
