Job Woes

I was "fired" last Monday and have been searching for a new job ever since. Let me tell you, it is NOT easy. I have put my resume everywhere, searched online jobs, Craigslist, and been on interviews.

I went on a second interview yesterday, for a marketing complany whom I had high hopes for. I was told the company worked with non profit organizations to help get the word out. I was told I would be going to a live event, and seeing how things were done. I was excited.

I followed J to the "event" which was further away than I had planned for; wonder if the job includes mileage reimbursement; and was a little shocked when we pulled into the "Office Depot" parking lot. J informs me that we will set up just outside the door, pulled out a table and tub-o-stuff and lead me to our spot. He set up the table with a table cloth, banner, and then the goods that I assumed we would be handing out. NOPE, I was wrong.

We were not handing out these good for the non-profit organization. We were selling them, AND not only that "we" were making profit from it. Um, HELLO, that is not what I thought was going to happen. J continued to make sales pitches to everyone that walked by with cheezy CHEEZY sayings, "There she is, I have been waiting for you all day!" to one woman who honestly looked like a pimp in purple velvet. He kept swtiching the prices of all the items to sell as many things as he could. BIG RED FLAG!

After a couple of hours with this, he took me to lunch, where I was to buy my own lunch, and he was to tell me how we get paid. I didn't buy lunch, and he told me that the hours are 9:00 AM to 7 PM, and basically we would be doing this over and over each day. That they were not paid hourly or salary, but are given 35% of our sales. um, WHAT!? Needless to say, I did not take the position. It all seemed too much like a scam, not to mention the way they "recruited" us as sellers, then we would get promoted to trainers, then to managers, then we would get our own campaigne, under a different company name, and start the process all over again. I mean, its too much like consultant based sales and tier profits for me.

So the hunt continues. If anyone out there has a job opening, send it my way!

Free Stuff for the Holidays

I lost my job last week, and was wondering how in the WORLD I was going to get DH a Christmas present when TADAAA this fell in my lap. At first I was skeptical cause, duh, every time you click the flashing "free stuff" link anywhere you get bombarded with advertisers you have to sign up with at least 4 of them to get your free gift. Then by the time I get to the third one I have over $30 in shipping fees and no free gift, but that is where this is TOTALLY different because you choose which way to do it!

So all you have to do is click the link below, sign up your email address and choose between referral program or points program (I chose referral because you only need referrals and not to complete those long advertiser programs, plus this way, we just all sign up and help each other get the free stuff!) and viola, FREE STUFF!!


Nintendo Wii


So, if you would be so kind as to help a sister out, just click the link and you too can get something nifty and free this holiday.

I Barter in BJs

So hubby loves bjs, I mean, what man doesn't right? So sometimes, when I really want something done, say I want the laundry done, or a shopping spree. . . you get the picture. It's not like I don't give them to him anyway, but sometimes he needs a little bit more motivation I use those 5 little words "I'll give you a blowjob" You may not agree, but hey, I feel fine about it, and that is ALL that matters.

Rockin' My Right to Vote!

Tomorrow I will be taking part in my second presidential election, my first being the great Bush fiasco of 2004. I could not be more excited!

I have my clothes picked out; fade blue jeans and my DZ Alumna Voters tee. My coffee maker is set to auto brew at 6 AM, early enough for the morning news and poll updates. I have my Obama button laid out and ready (yes, GObama is getting my vote) and my registration card magneted to the refrigerator.

Tomorrow I will take part in making history, I will do my part to help a black man FINALLY be given the equal chance at running this messy country. Here's to change, here's to hope, and here is to those of you out there voting!
