Unemployed

Posted on

Well everyone, the job I thought I had secured that I was ever so excited about.. well.. let’s just say pipe dreams are made for going up in smoke.

I feel like the biggest dumbass on the planet for falling for it. Ladies and Gentlemen this is what happens when you go with emotion rather than listening to your gut feelings. I wanted to work at home so badly that I ignored my gut and went with it. Like an idiot, now I have egg on my face and bills coming due that I don’t have the money to pay.

I am a working person. I have never been one of those who didn’t want to work, I want to contribute, fuck that, I need to contribute. I was a single mother before J, this is not an acceptable situation for me to be in. To my mind I’m a loser for having the title Unemployed.

I never thought I’d see the day where I’d say I don’t have gainful employment.

Pray for my sanity folks.

  1. Oh, you better believe it! Never been the party type, especially the “poor me” kind. Just thought I’d let y’all know that listening to your gut is INCREDIBLY important in terms of the workforce.

    You KNOW I’ve been papering this metroplex with my resume girl!

  2. I’ve fallen for it too, before (different type of job). Once you learn that lesson, you never have to “relearn” it.
    I’m sorry this happened to you, but I’m sure that you will find another job.

  3. Oh, I’m sorry. Why is it the good people who WANT to work have so much trouble finding jobs these days? Please don’t blame yourself or feel like a loser. It’s the economy. Things will pick up. And with your attitude, you will find something GOOD — something much better than whatever this job was.

    JD at I Do Thingss last blog post..I Forgot so you don’t have to

  4. Good lord, that sucks.
    Muc like my sales job with its “salary” that never paid me after three weeks of being in their office everyday.
