 There are more interesting reads listed over on the right. You have had fair warning lol.

I often think that I have a bad habit of constantly questioning things. Occasionally, it does pay off though. I had my job interview yesterday...and I doubt they will call me back...because I quickly lost the urge to impress. On the surface it was great. A decent salary position working three days a week. Then I asked that little question that changed everything "when you are here four weeks at a time and you want me here seven days a week the whole time (yes, twenty-eight days straight, two to four times a year), do the extra days turn into hourly pay or is it all the base salary received when only working three days a week?" Ummm. Still base salary. When you calculate that in? it works out to about four dollars an hour. On one hand, I was horrified that I didn't want the job after all, on the other hand, I won't be disappointed if I don't get it lol.

It never ceases to amaze me how cheap the ridiculously rich tend to be lol.

On the bright side, Alpha may get some work out of it. It's a totally different ballgame paying a contractor. And they want a fair amount of work done. Though, if He bids it and they want to pay him a quarter of His price? It will be more lucrative for me to find a job as a waitress. I have already mentioned the idea...Alpha and my mother both laughed at me!? Incredibly rude of them. Just because I have a problem serving others and am klutzy enough to drop and break anything on a regular basis. Pfftt, I bet I could last two whole weeks tyvm!

Yea, I came home and got a bit desperate because my hours are about to get cut (yes, I'm in charge of scheduling and I could cut the other employee's hours to make room for the incoming person, but I refuse to be responsible for the loss of his house and I have a better chance at finding a second job than he does).
I'm no good at this work thing. The mom thing? Got it down pretty good, even with the whole questionable sanity bit. Providing? I totally suck at it.
I'm not sure that never giving up qualifies as a job skill. But it damn well should lol.


  1. Yes it does count as a job skill ;)

    On one hand I want you to get the job because the 3 days a week would be great... but the drawback is the "4 dollars and hour" when it's a 7 day a week job. If it's not one thing, it's another.

    I hope you find what you are looking for/and need before the waitress gig :)

  2. Naida, quite honestly, even if they were to offer me the job (which I rather doubt because I quit trying about halfway through the interview lol), I would turn it down. I can't justify working 2 weeks to 28 days straight six times a year for the wages they are offering. Before knowing that, it did look damn good though lol.


Play nice.
