Finances being what they are and DF not able to work and nearly all his money going to medical each month - the pot is looking sparse. And I don't like to live pay to pay, but the lesson I learned by NOT being able to have a hysterectomy this month was SAVE SAVE SAVE. I've been looking for a PT job in the evenings after my full time job. I actually got hired at one place but it's hard work and only minimum wage. And when I tell you HOOPS had to be jumped through to qualify for this min. wage job - I mean fire hoops and drug tests and background check. Crazy. (now we know where the better than minimum wage raise has gone) So yesterday I applied on line for a job working 2nd shift. It would be loads more than minimum wage (guessing by the qualifications) and I could do it 4 days a week. NO weekends....other PT job is evenings after my other job 5:30 - 8:30 and weekends. So I emailed my resume (thinking how bright I am) and it came back undeliverable. Some places actually do this to get you to come IN if you are serious. It also said you could fax. -I have a fax at home so I did. Then thought on my lunch today - I will go get a Burger, leave it in the car and find this place and go introduce my cheery self. So I did - (what was I thinking? Chocolate shake) in 90 degree heat. But I left it, went in and asked if they got my resume. YES! Good, do I need to fill out anything else? Yes - here is OUR application and give me your drivers license. WOW - So I'm thinking I'm at least being considered. And at this point thinking - I don't see tons of people showing up. Huh.....odd...so many out of work. So I finished, said my good byes and left. Get out to my car (parked in the first customer spot_big no no, I know but I was in a hurry) and my car WILL NOT START. I pop the hood just as a man walks out. He's impressed that I could even get the hood up. Then I moved a few things, tugged on a few wires, tried it again - almost....same thing - and while I'm there I said "Well this is NOT how I had this hour of my life planned, and laughed." He said "Doesn't seem to be tight - you need to get a wrench and fix that." (Um I know this) but I said 'OKAY when I get back to the office I'll take your advice and fix it," and then it cranked.....he walked off, I smiled told him to have a great day - and in my rear view mirror....on his Vanity plates is the name of the company....OMG that was the OWNER. Great........Well for once...I am glad that despite having an always reliable but TODAY unreliable car that yes I can fix.......I was cheerful and didn't curse, or be miserable or hate the car. Instead I told this man It was broken, I fixed it myself, and I was cheerful while I did it. FINGERS CROSSED that my angel did this so this man would REMEMBER me. Only me - swear to the sky - ONLY ME. Oh and the hours? M-T 4PM - 2AM. They think it's data entry - YEAH. So M-F I'd work from 8AM - 4 PM (have to leave 1 hour early) and M-T I'd work 4PM - 2 AM.....(2 am OMG what have I done? - hopefully boosted my bank account to the moon) I can do this.
