“I was really happy at my new job and then right before my 90 days get terminated! I must get some sort of Office job soon. I have Purchasing, Cust Service, Call Center exp and good computer skills. This could curtail my getting to Trail Days!Know any companies hiring in the Nashville TN area?”
“It is because you act too darn happy all the time! You know how corps hate happy people!
Sorry to hear that gurlfriend. Sending good thoughts your way for the job hunt. I do hope you are going to get unemployment...beats a blank and keeps a roof over your head.”
“Don't know of anything there but I did want to wish you good luck in your search! This economy is hurting a lot of people, hope you don't end up being one of them! :)”
Are you pickin' or grinnin'?”
“NGB here...I feel for ya girlfriend. I am still looking..sucks bigtime!!”

“I just interviewed with a telemarketing co (my old fall back) that does biz-to-biz appointment setting. The pay range looks great with built in bonus based on two week average. I have done well with this sort of thing before while looking for something with benefits. I'll start next Monday,and see how it goes for the next couple of weeks.”
“And you are telling us this because?”
“Let me know if you decide you want to relocate, jobs are available in Houston.”

wadda wadda.......(rest is job discription.”
“in other words, the usual sales bull#&%!$”
“How freaking fun. Yessiree - gooddaamm hilarious.
Keep laughing, y'all - just not in Espanol, K?
My top-notch skills are in the construction industry. "Top Notch" being the opperative term. Problem is, the salaries are now based on the peso. Jobs now pay the same (in real dollars - no adjustment for inflation) as they did 20-30 years ago.
This is a pivitol point in our nation's history, and nobody seems to give a fukk.
WAKE UP AMERICA!”
I need a Job I can live with
“Must be off On wkends- Full steam ahead M-F
“Slept in my LR on ground pad and sleeping bag last night just to test out my skinny boney body! Woke up refreshed!”
“gojo, i used to love Earl Pitts.”
“Bah Humbug to a JOB. ;-)”
“really, I thought you were quoting him. He was a radio personality/comic redneck. Started off by stating he was so mad (different each day) that he wanted to tease a fat chick with a twinkie, tease a beaver with a toothpick, etc. Go off into a common man problem, and sign off in a huff, WAKE UP AMERICA, Pitts off!.”
“haha, I've heard that guy. he's a hoot. He's a real Uhmerikun”
“I had thought about pursuing a career in the man whore field. Then I got to thinking lately, since I can't seem to give it away for free, I'm just not sure I would get the salary I'm accustomed too. Back to the drawing board.”
“I thought about prostituting, too. Too much overhead, tho...”
You can't look at it as giving it away... You have to go in with the attitude that it is a cherished gift you are parting with unwillfully...
Remember, they only want what they can't have.. or something like that...
“I tried that too. I guess they considered that a gift like getting socks for christmas.”
“i need a summer job. someone employ me?
“Parks and Rec in any city is always begging for good summer help.
Golf courses private, public, and municipal are good place to look too.”
“Something where she could whip those kids into shape.... just to keep her chops in prime condition......”
“(I just flashed on a Hai Karate commercial. Could there possibly be a youtube.... ?)”
“how much an Hour?”
“Didn't you get the Summer Camp job, Pammie?”
“don't fret it, obami will create a job for you, just ask him.”
“what do you do dizzy?”
“ah, the Classics!
“first several emails made it seem as if i did have the job. i was being addressed as 'camp staff'. i was asked to come up for the camp staff work party, (which i did attend by the way). then they sent another email this past monday that said i didn't have the job. that was a really tough blow. then on wednesday they sent one more 'camp staff' email. i replied back and asked if there was a mix up and she apologized. i just let them know that if a job opened up to call me and if i was still available we'd work something out. i'll miss seeing the kids though, it was great being with them at the work party.
i began applying at other camps, but it's very late in the season. i absolutely must have a summer job in order to afford to live. if nothing happens i'll begin looking for retail work. the problem with that is that i wouldn't make enough money to pay for BrianSean's band assessment which is usually around 5 or $600 dollars.

“Damn, that sucks, Pammy. Sounds like someone's in-law got your job.”
“it's more likely a case of 'we can hire a kid cheaper'”
“Most any state university will have job opening from time to time.
There are all kinds of jobs on a campus and the benefits for a permanent position might include tuition remission for your kids.”
“how much an Hour?”
summer camp pays about $325 a week for 7 weeks plus room and board.”
“don't fret it, obami will create a job for you, just ask him.”
LOL! no thank you, i prefer the private sector to public bailouts.”
