    You'd Think I'd Be Frickin' Happy

    Well, I was griping about my job in the "I Hate My Job" and other groups, and now I can say, after more than 12 months of seriously looking for a new job, that I have one. I start in just a little over a week. Yes, you WOULD think I'd be happy. But this time around the job...

    Daycare Center $7.50 Per Hour

    I'm a college grad. First, let me say that I know people are still looking for jobs, and that times are hard, and everyone's struggling....STILL, I need to get this off my chest.  Where I'm working is a lot of work for little pay--because they're dealing with babies and children...

    Finally!

       I got the nod today.  It isn't much, but I needed a job desperately so $7.65/hr & part-time will have to do for now.  Hopefully, I can leverage this to a position in the electronics department before Christmas.  I can easily work as a cashier as I've done it before, but I...

    Closer to home.  Doing something I know how to do, which is always a pleasure and even though it's less money, I actually get more since my expenses are less.  Does that make sense?  I was paying taxes income that was spent on costs of travel which I no longer have...

    So Happy I Could Just About Die. Or Scream. Or Scream and Then Die.

    That title pretty much sums it up. I'm going to be making more money doing something I love, and I don't have to do selling of any sort and I don't have to do customer service. To hell with Rollaids. Relief is spelled J-O-B.

    Fast Food . . . Again

    I rushed to find a new job after my husband quit his.  I hope to become a manager there and pay for my hubby to go to school.  Although fast food doesn't pay well, I enjoy doing it.  I think that this company will be a fun place to work.
