lost my jobb....

Can't say i'm surprised, but was expecting it to be because they were losing so much on their Crystal Lake store.

Got into work at 11:55 instead of 11:45, told me to go home...even though I told her I would **maybe** make it at 11:45 because I had to wait for my sister to get back from MCC to give me a ride there. (not to mention I'm scheduled at 12, those 10 minutes wouldn't kill her)..just pisses me off because that's something that's completely out of my control.

Probably because we didn't get along...at all..and I constantly gave her shit about her stupid policies and flaws. Only reason it sucks is now I'm going to have to figure something out to fix the bills issue..Selling my car asap now.

Kind of glad I wasn't going to be stuck in the same store as her for 8 hours today


Ugh. Anyone need their car detailed, or brakes/oil/tune-up done??

Also, pisses me off because I always was set before bills-wise doing my window cleaning thing, made a good $600 a month working once every 2 weeks, and I lost all my clients because she couldn't schedule right. Kicking myself for that now.

BTW, <<< pretty much pro at window cleaning, been doing it for 3 years, so if you want to see some sparkly clear snow through the windows, let me know. I'll beat the other guys' prices!

yeah, was thinking of doing a full tune-up and brakes, but that's out of the question now. Spark plugs are only ~5k miles old, brakes have a good 40% life on them. Just the tires are in need of replacement in the next 2k or so miles.

Going to at least fix the driver window since it's not on the track right, that should be a 0$ fix, as long as I don't break any of the tabs holding the door on and have to get new ones. Might still do an oil change though, needs one as of 300 miles ago.

Sorry man,

good luck. PM me on your detail pricing and experience. I may get mine done at the end of winter, but I usually do it myself. I'm VERY particular.

You don't need "all" the tabs to hold the panel on. I break those things all the time, if I dont use the tool for it.

btw, if anyone has a any leads on a job i'd be most appreciative, nothing really keeping me in woodstock anymore. If it's FT and would be enough for me to live in a shitty crackhouse, it works. lol.

<< experience in sales (not my favorite though), customer service, data entry (excel, 10 dg. keypad, word etc.), basic knowledge of cars/bikes (shop 3 years, work on all my own stuff), warehouse and shipping..and food stuffs, lots of years between pizza hut and my dad's old hot dog stand..

well, no more cool phone for me..dropped down to the most basic of services and back to the voyager so I at least have something for now. luckily within my 30 day limit to return the phone so I don't have a $400 bill due.

Not sure if it's worth it to pay the 160 ETF right now and get virginmobile so I only pay $26 a month rather than $60, or might just suspend the line without billing for a while so I can pay that etf later, and still get the cheaper virgin phone..

hmm....

Something tells me this would be the number one cause that put you on the radar.
I am still confused as to why you were fired. if you start at 12 and you where there at 1155 whats the problem. 6 months or longer at the job and you can fill unemployment. she might fight it she might not doesnt hurt to try.

Sorry for your lose even tho it seems you brought it upon yourself.

Just remember every thing happens for a reason. You will probably score something better now.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Sorry to hear man. If you wanna do customer service there is a staffing agency aerotek of something like that on careerbuilder and they are hiring for a company. If starts at 15 an our I think. Try comed being a meter reader. It starts out at like 15 and hour wiht awesome benefis. My buddy has been doing it 3 months and already got promoted with a 76 percent increase in salary. Com ed is also hiring part time in their call center starting at $22.83. There are a few options for you. Its tough out there I have been out of a job since sept. I just got a job on friday.
