Back to the Drawing Board!

Aw HELL!! I just got "laid off" from my job today. She was very nice about it, but it still means that I am unemployed. Again!!

I don't want to have to go looking for another job. It took me two months to find this one. Looking for work is so depressing. Especially when there aren't a lot out there. And the ones that are out there suck. It can really make you feel inadequate when you have to suffer through all the rejection and realize that you are qualified for so little in the job market.

I generally believe in signs and that things happen for a reason (I mean, within reason); so I am hoping that this means that something better is on its way. Besides, that job was really cutting into my blogging time!

Syl, I am sorry for this news!!! You were so excited! "Laid off"? It sounds like they didn't plan well, and you surely don't want to work for a company that doesn't plan well. Oh, what am I saying. Just trying to commiserate with ya. {{S}}

I finally got a response from the City job I applied for- just a postcard, but it says they received so many applications it's going to take them 1-2 weeks to select those for an interview. Wow. At least I heard that much.

Keep your pretty blonde chin up; make SSB make dinner tonight.

Indiaiynke, I just want to work! With my husband now out of work too, we kind of need the money. But, I was beginning to think that the job wasn't a good match anyway, so maybe it is fate once again taking care of things for me.

ESC, I'm going with heads-up-their-asses. But she was very nice about it and is giving me a week and half severance. That's more than I expected.

Oh, Sylvana, I am so sorry to hear you got laid off. Especially with SSB out of work too. Looks like JD will have to support the family! Paper route? Snow shovelling? Hey, you could all do that!! Seriously, though getting laid off during the holidays is a real bummer. I hope things will be looking up for you and SSB real soon.

Thanks, OldRoses. It wouldn't be the first time that we did jobs like that for money in this family!

Sorry about the layoff, mamasita caliente :( I know how you feel. I once got fired from a job just because I refused to make coffee for everybody.

Damn Starbucks...

Hope everything works out, swee'pea!

Shannon, good jobs are pretty scarce around here. There is supposed to a job coming open at the library where I used to work. That's not to say that I will get it since there may be other applicants, but they really like me there, so I have a good chance.

Pink Lady, I am also hoping that this means that there is something better coming up.

Irb, YOU'RE BACK!! You are so funny! I loved that!

Maybe you're going to have quadruplets or something.

Just kidding. I wouldn't put that on anybody.

Sorry to hear about the job. Don't you love those that "let you go" right before December?

Tayster, QUADRUPLETS!!! I wouldn't even want to have one more! Evil.
I think my boss was a bit flighty. She seemed to make hasty decisions while I was working there too.

There's always that Elf gig down at the mall!

And I'd look real cute as an Elf too!

Yeah, fortunately there's loads of seasonal work to be done at the moment, so maybe you could land a job wrapping presents or something? Snow shoveling is also good, esp. in Wisconsin!!

ORF, we don't get a lot of snow in this part of Wisconsin, which sucks, because if it is going to bet this cold, there had damn well be snow on the ground. Otherwise, what is that point?!

Dang, Sylvana, that's too bad. But I think you could definitely hop on the "seasonal work" train; ain't nothing like being abused by impatient and clueless shoppers!

The Doc, I even have lots of experience with customer abuse, so I'd be a shoe-in!
