I embellish my resume. I have a higher education also, so that helps. All the jobs I've had have been professional, white collar, so with having all these jobs I've had a lot of experience. I've been at my current job for three years. This is the longest I've been at any job. I plan on retiring from this job. I'm the Business Manager of a medical group. It fits my personality perfect.

You have had THIRTY-SEVEN JOBS?  Wow.

I can understand that you don't want to take "shit" from people . . . but how do you keep getting hired?

Quoting Idkmyscreenname: Oh please! I'm 45 and I've had 37 jobs. Im not good at taking shit from people.

I've done volunteer work, so I have experience in other areas.

And when I was younger I lived on the streets and did some bad shit to survive and make money.

Well, at least you didn't ask me to list the number of people I've slept with....

For the record, I've had so many jobs and so many lovers, I couldn't list either one.
