My dad did something for me today that makes me want to cry!

I've been struggling trying to find work. From being ignored after being offered a job to endless amounts of applications, nothing has worked out. Then, today I find out I may not be getting child support for a good long while. Financially, I'm hurting. Yes, I live with my parents and I have their full support, financially and otherwise, but I prefer getting dd things with my own money. 

After telling my dad over a phone call about the child support situation, he tells me "I have good news for you tonight. We will talk about it when I get home."

He gets home and tells me that starting Monday, I have a temporary position at his credit union. The job is simple, possibly minimum wage, and will last 30 days, possibly two months max, but it'll definitely help me seeing as how I'm in need of cash. It'll give me a little experience and some breathing room while I continue my job search.

I love my parents more than words can explain. They do so much for dd and I...mom is even taking me shopping this weekend for some professional attire.

 That is wonderful!  I hope you are able to use this as a stepping stone to future employment.  Any experience is a gain.

It'll help me immensely. Hopefully I'll get something good for after the temporary period is up, probably a call center or something. I need something to help me save up money to move dd and I somewhere I can find a great job.

That's great news!  It's wonderful that you have such supportive parents.  Any chance it could lead to a permanent position?

Sadly, no. I'll be inputting information into a program and scanning some papers, and in about two months they're going to have a mechanical system set up to do the job I'll be doing.
