Nope, you just can't afford to be picky!

Some guy here had a stand off with the cops yesterday and shot himself after he got fired so I'd say, pretty much.

According to my friends ex it is so hard to find a job here. I am slightly shocked but that thought considering she has more work recent work experience than I do and I had 5 job offers in one week back in December.

I mean I was laid off one job this month (hours cut), and started a new one a week later (almost to the hour lol).

She has been "trying" for close to a year with only w offers (both she quit after 2 weeks).

I am having a difficult time finding any kind of job here in Idaho.  Granted I'm not a spring chicken, and can't stand on my feet for more than two hours at a go, but there is nothing wrong with my mind.  I have stayed current on all my business skills.  I am now applying for jobs I have absolutely no interest in.  My Beloved has been out of work for nearly 2 1/2 years and can't find anything either - at least we have both had interviews, but no job offers.

No, but I make enough to survive. And yes one of her jobs did make about 10 plus tips.
